Comments: TK from Ling Tosite Sigure


Q: Thoughts on getting to perform the main theme for the movie.

A: I never thought the conversation about Spider-Man would fall upon me, so I am extremely happy. This is the first animated Spider-Man film so it was fun for myself too wondering what kind of song I would create.


Q: Thoughts on the Spider-Man film series.

I went to see [one of] the movies at the cinema during a time when I wondering whether or not I could start a band. I think I was a student at the time… It was a really emotional period, and back then there weren’t many works that showed both the strong and weak sides to heroes. It was a really original scenario, I really loved the film.


Q: Thoughts on writing the song.

The first issue was deciding how much of myself I should put into Spider-Man. Tying together my own troubles with the conflicts and complexes an ordinary young boy experience… I was really conscious about how much of that can I connect to the world of Spider-Man as well as putting those messages in a fast-paced song with things like wordplay.


Q: Final comments to watchers.

I went to New York as well for the recording of Spider-Man, so I would be happy if that feeling of being airborne gets through to people.
