Materia Collective’s NieR: Glory To Mankind pop rearrangement of NieR: Automata’s soundtrack is currently available right now as both a physical album and as a digital album download.
The album collection contains the most popular songs from Platinum Games’ PS4 and PC outing, rearranged in both vocal and orchestrated renditions as an homage to Keiichi Okabe and Keigo Hoashi’s highly regarded and beloved music featured in the game.
According to artist and rearranger, ROZEN, it’s mentioned in the press release…
“It is our wish that people listen to this album and, if they are long-time fans of the series, experience a new, more intense take on the melodies that made the game’s story so iconic,”
“For newer fans, we hope to introduce them to the world of NieR: Automata the same way we were: through the incredible music.”
You can actually check out a music video below featuring the Amusement Park song rearranged for the Materia Collective’s album. It’s well worth watching and listening to.

I was a little worried at first when they mentioned that it was a pop rearrangement in the press release, but after listening to the songs from ROZEN and Reven, it was pretty clear that the apples didn’t veer far from the tree. In fact, some of the songs could very well fit in perfectly with the original release of NieR: Automata.
You can pick up the album via a limited edition physical CD or by downloading the album from iTunes or Spotify. If you need to learn more about the album before you dive in and make a purchase, you can do so by visiting the official Glory To Mankind website.
