Final Fantasy VII Rebirth Theme Song Revealed, Asian Pre-order Bonus Announced
Square Enix has unveiled the theme song for Final Fantasy VII Rebirth during the recently concluded The Game Awards 2023.
Entitled “No Promises to Keep,” the theme song is composed by the incomparable Nobuo Uematsu and performed by Loren Allred, the renowned, platinum-selling artist who captivated the world with her single
“Never Enough” from The Greatest Showman.
“As depicted in the song ʻAerithʼs Theme,ʼ Aerith has had a bit of an ill-fated and ephemeral impression within me,” said Uematsu. “I understood from the beginning that this song is also related to Aerith, but the poignant melody from ʻAerithʼs Themeʼ does not appear in this song. I wanted to depict the opposite of this, the strength at her core, hidden within Aerithʼs heart. As I listened to the recording over and over again once it was finished, Aerith, who until then was a resident of a fantasy world, now began to feel like a real human being in the flesh. Loren Allredʼs vocals, sometimes ephemeral and other times passionate and powerful, surely give life to the existence of Aerith. It has been a while since Iʼve written a ballad that feels uniquely my own, and Iʼm happy to have done so. Thank you, Aerith.”
“I am excited and humbled to bring the iconic Aerithʼs voice to life on ʻNo Promises to Keepʼ in Final Fantasy VII Rebirth,” said Allred. “The composer Nobuo Uematsu is a musical visionary who has brought so much to the world of FINAL FANTASY, and to be able to collaborate with such an innovative talent was an honor. I am so grateful to the Square Enix team and cannot wait for the world to hear this song and to play the game weʼve all been waiting for.”
Square Enix also announced the early purchase bonus of the physical version of Final Fantasy VII Rebirth in Asia, which is a beautiful cup holder with an original design.
