Wednesday Campanella Release New Song ‘Ikiro.’ in Collaboration With yahyel

03.November.2018 | MUSIC

Wednesday Campanella are currently knee-deep in the Asia leg of their 2018 Galapagos Tour, but that hasn’t stopped them from releasing a new song today titled Ikiro. in collaboration with Japanese five-piece indie pop band yahyel.


Wednesday Campanella’s frontwoman KOM_I met the vocalist of yahyel Shun Ikegai by chance at the end of last year where they discussed the possibility of making a song together. The song was first performed at this year’s Summer Sonic Festival and it received rave reviews from fans.


The lyrics were written by Ikegai and KOM_I themselves and the song was composed by the two of them along with yahyel’s Miru Shinoda and Wataru Sugimoto.

The single’s CD cover is an infrared photograph taken by Japanese photographer Yusuke Yamatani featuring KOM_I and Ikegai at night on the streets of Shibuya. The use of infrared brings out the outer layer of the ‘real Tokyo’ that’s hidden to the normal eye.
