This song is a celebration of pursuing dreams against all odds, and I couldn’t have asked for a better partner than Ran to help bring this vision to life. It’s a tribute to the power of radical pursuit and unwavering perseverance, as well as a nod to our gaming roots.
Listen to the single, pre-order the vinyl/cd/cassette and stay tuned for the full album dropping November 17th via RandomBeats Music x Retrograde Arcade (just in time for the anniversary of Chrono Cross).
