A new track for the Pokemon 25 music album, commemorating 25 years of the classic creature-catching franchise, has just been released. The song is "Take It Home" by the British singer Mabel McVey, which released its music video this morning.
In the music video, the 25-year-old singer and BRIT award winner comes home to watch a movie featuring Pikachu and Celebi on TV until she falls asleep. When she wakes up, she follows a Jigglypuff around a fantastical building and dances on a stage while Pikachu and the Jigglypuff watch. The song features beats by superstar producers Tommy Brown and Mr. Franks, while the playful and colorful music video was directed by Sophia Ray. The music video, which was just released this morning, can be seen below:
Speaking to People, Mable said that it was "epic" to be a part of the project, and as a big Pokemon fan, she wanted to create something fun and playful. "I wanted to create these parallel worlds of reality versus fantasy because I'm a big dreamer," she said. "I had so many imaginary friends when I was a kid, and it was honestly a childhood dream to just be dancing with Pokémon." Among the other musicians who will be in the Pokemon 25 album are Post Malone with a cover of Hootie and the Blowfish's "Only Wanna Be With You," an unknown song by J. Baldwin, and Katy Perry's "Electric." No word on if Bump of Chicken's "Acacia" will be on there.
The Pokemon 25 album, which will be released by Capitol Records, has no solid release date other than beyond Fall 2021. It will feature 14 songs by 11 artists.
