bamdumtss These are amazing renditions of two already great tracks that manage to be not only unique but also full of the ensemble's personality, and that's no small feat. Keep doing what you guys do, and stay safe! Favorite track: The Days When My Mother Was There.

Gabi I was a bit skeptical about listening to this because I already own the Persona 5 OST. What could you possibly add to to tracks that are already great? Turns out you can. J-MUSIC Ensemble has proved there's a lot of possibilities out there and I'm amazed at their arrangements. Favorite track: The Days When My Mother Was There.

"I'll reveal your true form!"

After playing this music in rehearsals and live performances for 2 years, we're so happy to finally release the first studio-quality recordings from our Persona 5 sessions! We got together some of the best musicians in New York City, along with some of the best engineers in New York City, to bring you what we truly believe is our best work yet. This single is dedicated to our incredible J-MUSIC community who have been supporting us since our first ever Persona 5 music performance 2017, all the way to our live covers with Adam Neely that garnered worldwide acclaim on YouTube. As a result, we've included two tracks that have been staples in both the Persona and J-MUSIC community: "The Days When My Mother Was There" featuring the now classic verses by Khrys Williams, and our latest version of "Wake Up, Get Up, Get Out There", featuring the esteemed queen of Persona soul herself, Sapphire! We put a ton of love, soul, and hard work into this single, and we hope you all enjoy it. Thanks to all of you for your love and support!
