Naruto soundtracks on Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music on Friday — hell, yeah!

As someone who has spent the better part of this week listening to anime soundtracks on Spotify, including those from The Seven Deadly Sins, Vinland Saga, and Attack on Titan, I was thrilled today to learn most of the Naruto soundtracks are coming to Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music and other streaming services at the end of this week.

Naruto soundtracks, you will probably know, have been difficult or impossible to find online — at least on legal platforms — as Milan Records, the record label that holds them in its tight fist, has refused to allow them to be played outside Japan for years.

Did that decision make any sense? No.

Not for the artists whose music is featured on the Naruto soundtracks, and definitely not for Milan Records, who has been losing tens of millions of dollars in streaming income over the last few years.

That, thankfully, will change this week as Milan Records seems to have finally realized the decision was the wrong one.

Hence, Naruto soundtracks coming to streaming services outside Japan on Friday, September 24th. Yay!

 

Which Naruto soundtracks are coming to Spotify. Apple Music, Amazon Music and other streaming services?

The Naruto soundtracks included in the streaming service release cover the gamut from TV series to movies, with everything from Naruto The Movie: Legend of the Stone of Gelel soundtrack to Naruto Original Soundtrack 1, 2 and 3, and even Boruto: Naruto Next Generations Original Soundtrack 1, 2 and 3.

In other words, a hell of a lot of Naruto music for fans to listen to in coming months.

In all, 19 Naruto soundtrack albums have been announced as releasing on streaming services on Friday.

Here’s the entire list:

All I, as an anime music afidionado, can say to this is thank you, Milan Records, as tens of millions of us having been waiting for legal ways to listen to music from our favorite Naruto series and movies for years.

And, to everyone else, make sure you play the hell out of these Naruto soundtracks on Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music and any other streaming service that gets them, and so prove to Milan Records they made the right decision.
