OC ReMix presents Songs of the Sirens: Link's Awakening ReMixed!

FAIRFAX, VA... Celebrating today's highly anticipated re-release of Link's Awakening on the Nintendo Switch, OverClocked ReMix today released its 71st free community arrangement album, Songs of the Sirens: Link's Awakening ReMixed. Featuring 14 tracks from 14 artists, Songs of the Sirens pays tribute to Nintendo's 1993 handheld classic The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening, and is co-directed by OC ReMix veterans William "WillRock" Harby & Emery "DaMonz" Monzerol. The album is available for free download at http://sirens.ocremix.org.

Songs of the Sirens pulls together a talented roster of musicians honoring this legendary soundtrack in a variety of styles, including EDM, orchestral, jazz, prog rock, and more. Songs of the Sirens was made by fans, for fans, and is not affiliated with or endorsed by Nintendo; all games, characters, images, and original compositions are copyright their respective owners.

"Right after we finished Mirror Image, we already half-jokingly talked about making another Zelda album at some point," recalled directors Harby and Monzerol. The duo were motivated by Nintendo announcing their next-gen revival of the exemplary Game Boy best-seller. "As soon as the Link's Awakening remaster for the Nintendo Switch was announced, we realised now was the perfect time to do the album," Harby and Monzerol added.

The album's artwork -- depicting a stone carving of Koholint Island's mysterious Owl and Wind Fish characters -- was designed by Canadian artist Roxanne Chartrand.

Songs of the Sirens marks OC ReMix's fourth Legend of Zelda series album, following 2017's Mirror Image tributing A Link to the Past, 2011's 25YEARLEGEND commemorating the franchise's 25th anniversary, and 2010's Threshold of a Dream previously honoring Link's Awakening.

"Link's Awakening is very special to us, and we wanted to show the depth of our appreciation of the game and its music by releasing an arrangement album simultaneously with the remaster," explained co-directors Harby and Monzerol. "This album was very much a labour of love, and we hope that translates to the finished product!"

Not even going to try listening to it first, just going to download it right away. That list of remixers alone is good enough.
