The mega compilation album from Capitol Records and Universal Music Group has officialized a debut date. Next month on October 15, Pokémon 25: The Album will be available to the masses of eternal fans. Featured artists on the album will consist of Katy Perry, Lil Yachty, Post Malone, and many more to honor Pokémon’s 25th anniversary.
The Power That’s Inside Pokémon 25: The Album
In partnership with Universal Music Group, The Pokémon Company International began to celebrate the beloved franchise. Initially, Post Malone’s “Only Wanna Be With You” kicked off the album’s single track earlier this year in February during the Pokémon P25 Virtual music concert.
Down the line, Katy Perry debuts her “Electric” track in May. Then, more artists such as Vince Staples, Cyn, Mabel, and Louane premiered new songs for the anniversary. All will be collected in the album, with more to be included that were featured on The Red EP and The Blue EPs previously.
Colin Palmer, Vice President of Marketing at The Pokémon Company International, expressed his enthusiasm for Pokémon’s 25th anniversary, saying:
P25 Music has been an incredible journey in which we’ve been able to collaborate with so many amazing musicians to help us celebrate 25 years of Pokémon. As we count down to the launch of Pokémon 25: The Album and the culmination of this yearlong adventure, we’re looking forward to Lil Yachty, Tierra Whack, and Jax Jones joining the party and adding their own unique sounds and fresh takes on Pokémon-inspired songs to this celebratory compilation.”
