The latest post on the SE JP music blog by Masayoshi Soken offers a glimpse on some of the new BGM (14, according to what is written) that will be introduced in patch 1.19. It's a digest of all the tracks that are going to be implemented, to hear a few of them go to the bottom of the page and click on the play button.

First one sounds like what may be the "Grand Company" chocobo theme.

Looking forward to hearing the full tracks, I liked the samples.
Especially some of the epic sounding ones near the middle.

So I decided to take a break (from what I was doing) by attempting a translation in case anyone felt like they were missing out. You weren't by the way, there's no significant info in here or anything, but just in case, here you are:

Hey everyone,
it's sound designer/composer Soken.

If you're walking at Shinjuku Station, looks like everyone's wearing knee highs. (Basically, everyone's wearing long pants more or less.)
With the sun coming around less and less, it's starting to cool off

Everyone wants the snow don't you think?

Now then, the day after tomorrow on 10/5 Final Fantasy XIV patch 1.19 hits!

Seriously it was a huge effort... truly exhausting...

The amount we produced was 5 times as much as that of patch 1.18

On twitter, it was mentioned there would be 14 new songs!
For Japan, we're making a special digest (medley) version available to the public, pre-release, with 14 songs and 1 jingle!! (Assumption is that he's referring to the "Victory Fanfare")

It's clear where some of the songs will be used,
but where some other songs will be used is less clear,
Anyway, PLEEEEEEEEASEEEEEE take a listen!!

The most difficult thing was that the sound work was a secret!!

Furthermore during all that hard work I had to be on stage at CEDEC (Roughly equivalent to Japan's GDC), and the next day on the internet I (...not sure here >_>) also a secret.

I have a hunch that wasn't spirit but... sweat.
But, obediently laugh at that icon!

( Honestly no idea what icon, I sort of got lost at the end lol... Nothing spectacularly important though, just some humor that I failed to understand. So if some of it seems really awkward, that's because I started literally translating some of the phrases because I had no context. )

There's some good songs in there. I'm loving the Zahar'ak theme.

I agree, this is quality.. My only concern is whether the areas they're used for are also inspiring.

Sounds like a Tactics soundtrack - which is a very good thing! :D
