TOKYO, JAPAN – 29 MARCH, 2023BURNOUT SYNDROMES' highly anticipated greatest hits album, “The WORLD is Mine,” is out as of today! The album features all of the trio's most popular anime songs along with remixed and rearranged versions of their original tracks. Fans can enjoy familiar songs and fresh takes on their catalog starting today, on CD or through all major streaming services.

The limited first edition of the CD also includes a Blu-ray disc with full footage of the band's first world tour, Good Morning [New] WORLD TOUR, held at Veats Shibuya in December of last year, as well as a collection of off-shots from the tour.

Anime fans can expect to hear all of BURNOUT SYNDROMES' beloved anime tie-up songs on The WORLD is Mine. Those include numbers featured in series such as Haikyu!!, Dr. Stone, Gintama, and Those Snow White Notes, providing an overview of the group's musical contributions to the anime industry.

The best-of collection also features remixed and rearranged versions of their past and indie-era songs, showcasing the band's evolution from the past to the present, while also offering a peek into their future. Featured tracks include “Mt. Wakakusa Starmine,” which incorporates traditional Japanese instruments and the sound of fireworks, and “I Don't Wanna Die in the Paradise” in collaboration with Japanese rock band FLOW, plus the titular “The WORLD is Mine,” a specially rearranged version of a highlight from their indie-era. As a bonus, the album includes an English version of “FLY HIGH!!,” with lyrics written by Konnie Aoki, known for his work on YOASOBI's “Into The Night,” offering a different ambience compared to the original Japanese version.

The album's mastering was expertly handled by audio mastering veteran Stuart Hawkes, known for his work with top-notch artists such as Amy Winehouse, Ed Sheeran, and Charlie XCX. With his extensive experience and knowledge in the field, Hawkes has polished the album to perfection, ensuring that the tracks sound their absolute best.

The stunning visuals feature a young boy who has journeyed across the “WORLD” and landed in a universe where BURNOUT SYNDROMES' music tracks are on display. The artwork's clever use of light and dark colors creates a captivating contrast that draws the audience into the picture, making it feel as if they too have been transported into the band's musical world. Furthermore, to fans' excitement, BURNOUT SYNDROMES' new artist photo was also unveiled, taken in Los Angeles by renowned photographer Zach Bell.
