11 more tunes to zone out with
To celebrate the launch of the PlayStation 5/PS VR2 version of the game, Enhance has added 11 new songs from Tetris Effect: Connected to the Tetris Effect Original Soundtrack. The album is now known as the Tetris Effect: Connected Original Soundtrack, complete with 51 tracks by award-winning musical artist Hydelic.
Enhance originally released the 40-track Tetris® Effect (Original Soundtrack) in May 2020 on Bandcamp, major streaming/downloadable platforms (Apple Music, Amazon, etc.) through the aggregator TuneCore, and Hydelic’s YouTube channel.
In February 2023, Enhance decided to release an additional 11 tracks from the Connected multiplayer expansion of the game. On Bandcamp and Steam, they offered this for free to those who previously purchased the full album on the platform and officially updated the album to Tetris® Effect: Connected Original Soundtrack. New customers can purchase this full 51-track album for $10 USD on those platforms.
However, the same could not be done for streaming/downloadable platforms via TuneCore due to the length of the updated Tetris® Effect: Connected Original Soundtrack running over the TuneCore limit of 2.5 hours. This meant Enhance had no other option but to make the 11 tracks from Connected available as a separate product/album titled Tetris Effect, Vol. 2 (Connected Edition) [Original Soundtrack]. Additionally, in order to distribute an album on those platforms for streaming, Enhance must offer the album and tracks for purchase. The respective platforms set the retail prices on their storefronts and it is not up to us/artist — in the case of iTunes, that price is $9.99 USD (for an album with more than 10 songs) and Amazon Music sets customer prices independently (the retail price) through wholesale tiers with a final retail price of $8.99 for this album.

Enhance apologizes for not being able to offer the Tetris Effect: Connected Original Soundtrack in the same format across all available platforms and appreciates your understanding.
