For nearly a decade, respected video game arranger and composer Rozen has produced a stellar collection of Zelda fan albums, including 2017’s Sins of Hyrule, 2018’s Children of Termina, and 2022’s Shadows of Hyrule. Now, with so many years under his belt, Rozen — in partnership with Mango Mage Records — is bringing things full circle with a special vinyl release of his very first album Time Once Lost.

Originally released in 2015, Time Once Lost is an “album-length journey into the world of Majora’s Mask,” with killer arrangements of classic tracks like “Clock Town,” “Astral Observatory,” and “Song of Healing.” Despite being just his first full foray into Zelda music, Times Once Lost proved Rozen’s talent in fleshing out familiar tunes with emotion and power. A remastered version of the album was released digitally last year, with a new arrangement to boot, and a vinyl version was teased for some time down the road.
The time is now! Time Once Lost is now available on vinyl for the first time via Mango Mage Records. The single LP release includes 11 tracks — including the arrangement of “Oath to Order” performed by Sofia Session Orchestra from the remaster’s release — and is available in two color variants: Dawn and Dusk.
The vinyl version of Time Once Lost is available now directly from Mango Mage Records right here. Each variant is priced at $39.99 USD plus shipping, with the store shipping worldwide.
You can find the digital version of Time Once Lost on Bandcamp right here.
