SEKAI NO OWARI Digitally Release ‘Kimi wa Tsukiyo ni Hikari Kagayaku’ Theme Song

15.March.2019 | MUSIC

SEKAI NO OWARI dropped two new albums simultaneously on February 27, 2019―Lip and Eye―which marked their first studio album release Tree in 2015. Both albums ranked No. 1 and No. 2 on the Oricon Album Charts on March 6 respectively, and both continue to enjoy sound sales.

The four-piece Tokyo pop band has just made their song Mitsu no Tsuki -for the film- available for digital download and stream (March 15). The song is a special arrangement of the original track Mitsu no Tsuki included on Lip. It was written for the Japanese film Kimi wa Tsukiyo ni Hikari Kagayaku (“You Shine in the Moonlit Night”) which also hit Japanese theatres on March 15.

Exclusive cover art was also released for the track which is inspired by the title of the film―shining moonlight.

 

SEKAI NO OWARI made the following statement about the newly-arranged track: “We discussed [a new version] while we were writing the new albums. The original song was already complete, but Mitsu no Tsuki -for the film- is a new arrangement written as the main theme for the film. We wrote it together with Takeshi Kobayashi, who was our sound producer. It has a classic sound but you can also still hear that it is us. I hope people will like it, it’s very different from Mitsu no Tsuki on the album.”
