Oh give me one last ride, I've made it this far Her eyes they echo into the night, they speak into my flight And watching out ahead, the breeze it calls me, Though many say that, a fool believes but this fool believes in you Heaven knows what I'm here for, I'm not sure what she sees in me but she let's me be myself, I doubt that I'm the first, we've made it this far, The sweet allure of the freeing spirits, I long to cheer it now, But will I make it, I wandered somewhere new, My heart can't take it, but breathing in this summer air will do. Heaven knows what I'm here for, I'm not sure what she sees in me but I know that I want more.
Lord, the sun is gone, the night is here at last. All my thoughts are gone, but I am here at last. Lord, tonight is yours, this heart is yours, this song is yours. Wake! O heart of stone, for I can feel him near! Wake! O melody that all the world will hear! Lord, tonight is yours, this heart is yours, this song is yours. REFRAIN Stand by and watch me, stars above me, trees around me, wind beneath me! Stand by and watch me, hearts around me, hearts from far away beating with me! Lord, the night is dark, but I can feel you near. My eyes can't see your face, but I still know you're here. Take my beating heart, my beating drum, for I am yours!


Select Adventure: A Celebration of Identity brings together some of the finest BIPOC artists in the VGM community. Each track reveals a different story, and that journey is also reflected in the artwork, designed by Troisnyx. Despite the staggering variety of sounds on display from cumbia to prog rock, veteran mastering engineer James C. Hoffman ensures a cohesive listening experience. What's more, all proceeds from the album will go to Pixelles for BIPOC workshop leaders and coordinators for their monthly online workshops. Pixelles is a non-profit initiative committed to helping more people make and change games. They're based in Montreal and have already succeeded in building a supportive community of game creators, both hobbyist and professional.

Album producer Rahul Vanamali had this to say:

"With Select Adventure, we take a dive into the cultures and experiences that have shaped the identities - both musical and otherwise - of these BIPOC VGM artists today. The nature of the tracks varies widely, but running through each one is a powerful and personal story, and we're excited to have you experience the musical tales we have to tell. We're also very pleased that any sales of this music will be directly benefitting an organization that actively uplifts marginalized groups, so we appreciate your support!"

Only one question remains: which adventure will you select today?
