Two-time Grammy-nominated artist Steve Aoki’s new track “Straw Hats Pirate Anthem – Steve Aoki Remix” on the original soundtrack for “One Piece Film Red,” has now been released alongside the movie’s U.S. & Canadian theatrical opening. The remix is a blend of three opening themes from the anime series sung by Japanese artist Hiroshi Kitadani, marks Steve Aoki’s third consecutive One Piece partnership with legendary anime studio Toei Animation.
The “One Piece Film Red” Original Soundtrack from Avec will be available to fans as both a one-disc album (Japan only) and digital download starting November 4. The OST features 47 songs from the movie plus the special remix (“Straw Hats Pirate Anthem – Steve Aoki Remix”) – 48 tracks in total.
The trio of Hiroshi Kitadani album tracks included on “Straw Hats Pirate Anthem – Steve Aoki Remix” are “We Are!” (Columbia Music Entertainment, 1999), “We Go!” (avec pictures, 2011) and “OVER THE TOP” (avec pictures, 2019). The high intensity three-track combo gives fans an exciting adventure fueled by a combination of Aoki’s non-stop creative energy and the power of One Piece’s action-packed storytelling.

“I’m so excited to be a part of the One Piece world and continue our collaborative partnership together. They are champions of the anime and manga world, and I hope fans can feel my excitement in this remix.”
