Kyary Pamyu Pamyu Announces New Song ‘KAMAITACHI’ at Her Concert With Yasutaka Nakata
22.February.2020 | MUSIC
Kyary Pamyu Pamyu and Yasutaka Nakata performed a two-man show entitled “Yasutaka Nakata x Kyary Pamyu Pamyu Presents SPECIAL DJ & LIVE TOUR 2020 YSTK×KPP Vol.02” at Toyosu PIT in Tokyo tonight on February 21, 2020.
The background music provided before the start of the show was music that was like from a car game. As excited fans waited with bated breath, the PlayStation startup sound rang throughout the room, at which point Kyary shouted “Time to dance!” and appeared on stage together with Nakata. They opened the show with Invader Invader -Extended Mix-.
Dancers joined the stage next for Minna no Uta -Extended Mix- and PON PON PON. The audience responded with great pleasure to Nakata and Kyary’s high-speed and ingenious song mashup. It was non-stop jumping and dancing as the performers continued to roll out more bangers like Enka Natrium, Ninja Re Bang Bang, and Mi, the bass grabbing hold of the crowd’s heart at every moment.
When Kyary and Nakata’s set reached its middle portion, they went full hardcore club mode as they performed Level Up from Nakata’s solo album Digital Native. Things got crazy when they mashed Kyary’s Fashion Monster into a trap beat with Star Wars as a Star Wars-style opening reel ran across the LED monitors.
They continued with a string of internationally-known pop songs, like Kyary’s Tsukema Tsukeru and Sokenbicha no Uta, as well as Harajuku Iyahoi. The ever-changing set kept the crowd on their feet with its mix of live music and club music.
Kyary and Nakata weren’t anywhere near finished yet however. They returned to mashup mode with Kyary’s Cherry Bon Bonーa track from her early days with a Eurobeat soundーand performed a cover of AIAIAI, which Nakata wrote for virtual YouTuber Kizuna AI, during which Kizuna AI appeared as a hidden character.
The internationally iconic SEGA logo sound then rolled across the venue before Nakata and Kyary performed a special version of Ichibanka which Nakata wrote for Japanese reggae band Shōnan no Kaze. The song is used as the main theme for the PS4® game Yakuza: Like a Dragon which will be released worldwide this year. Kyary provided some cute “Soiya Soiya!” chants during the song.
In the last spurt, they rolled out the hit tunes Kizunami and Mondai Girl before wrapping up with Oto no Kuni. Kyary pulled fans into her “Japamyu” world while Yasutaka Nakata smashed out some 8-bit video game beats.
But fans needed more, and the call for an encore didn’t die down. Kyary came out and said excitedly, “Thank you for the encore! Who’d’ve thought I’d sing some Shōnan no Kaze?! ” She also thank Nakata, before announcing the release of a new digital single entitled KAMAITACHI. Release details are TBA.
She also announced a mini 5-show tour to promote its release. The song’s lyrics have a traditional Japanese-feel to them, and so the tour too will take place at kabuki theatres around Japan.
To wrap up the concert, Kyary and Nakata performed KPP’s pop anthem Sai & Co -Extended Mix-.
Pre-sale tickets for Kyary’s “KAMAITACHI TOUR 2020” will go live on her fan club, KPP CLUB, on February 22, 2020 at 10:00 A.M (JST). Check her official website for the latest information.

Yakuza 7: Yasutaka Nakata and Shōnan no Kaze Collaborate On PS4® Game’s Theme Song
SEGA dropped a new teaser trailer for the upcoming PS4® exclusive Yakuza 7, the latest entry to the popular franchise, at Tokyo Game Show 2019. It was revealed that DJ and music producer Yasutaka Nakata and reggae band Shōnan no Kaze collaborated on the game’s main theme song.
This is their first time collaborating together. We look forward to more details on the song and hearing what the two artists have forged together.
Shōnan no Kaze band leader RED RICE commented: “We were given the opportunity to work together with the game director [Toshihiro] Nagoshi on Kurohyou 2: Ryu ga Gotoku Ashura Hen and Yakuza 0 from the Yakuza series. I am thrilled to get to work on the song while seeing the game world and concept from the early stages. We are putting our all into it.”
He also explained the challenges of ensuring there was the same level of fire and excitement in the song as with the introduction of a new protagonist, and so got in touch with Yasutaka Nakata to produce the song. He finished by saying how important the songs they have written for the Yakuza series are for their live shows, and that the band will work hard to ensure this song is added to that list.

Interview: Kyary Pamyu Pamyu & Yasutaka Nakata Joined by Kizuna AI at SUMMER SONIC 2019
27.August.2019 | MUSIC
Kizuna AI recently performed at SUMMER SONIC 2019 on the RAINBOW Stage on August 18. She also interviewed various acts who performed at the music festival, including Yasutaka Nakata and Kyary Pamyu Pamyu. The full interview was posted on her YouTube channel.
SUMMER SONIC 2019 – Official Artist Interview vol.02: Yasutaka Nakata & Kyary Pamyu Pamyu
Kizuna AI released a cover of Kyary Pamyu Pamyu’s song Kizunami on August 16 which is taken from Kyary’s fourth studio album Japamyu which dropped back in September 2018. To celebrate the release of the new song, Kizuna AI appeared as a surprise guest on Yasutaka Nakata and Kyary Pamyu Pamyu’s set at SUMMER SONIC 2019 where her and Kyary performed Kizunami.
Below is a translated summary of the interview.
Kizuna AI: “Our first collaboration together! Was I okay…?”
Kyary: “I haven’t collaborated with that many people. It’s rare for me to sing with someone, but I was really happy with how it went!”
Kizuna AI: “Nakata, when did people start calling you Ouji [Prince]?”
Kyary: “He has a lot of out-there nicknames! [laughs]”
Yasutaka Nakata: “Battery Eater is another one [laughs]”
Kizuna AI: “What does ‘chumete‘ mean?” [Referencing a word taken from the chorus of Kizuna AI’s song AIAIAI, written and produced by Nakata]
Yasutaka Nakata: “That’s a secret! Because you can interpret it in many different ways.”
Kizuna AI: “What’s a word or occurrence [in music] that’s stuck with you the most, Kyary?”
Kyary: “Ninja Re Bang Bang. The title was originally ‘tentative.’ I feel it’s a mysterious word that anyone can get behind. Even when touring overseas everyone sings it together.”
Kizuna AI: “Finally, please give a message to your fans!”
Kyary: “It was so much fun getting to stand on stage together with Nakata. I hope we can do something together again!”
Kizuna AI: “Kyary, can you put these ears on?”
Kizuna AI has posted lots of other interviews from the festival on her YouTube channel too including with SHAED, SOFI TUKKER, Alan Walker, the telephones, and AI. Be sure to check them out.
Kyary Pamyu Pamyu & Yasutaka Nakata Joined by Kizuna AI at SUMMER SONIC 2019
19.August.2019 | MUSIC
Yasutaka Nakata is the internationally acclaimed architect of kawaii music and music producer of huge Japanese names such as Kyary Pamyu Pamyu and Perfume.
The DJ and music producer is known for having collaborated with a whole string of big artists, such as Kenshi Yonezu on the song NANIMONO as well as Charli XCX on Crazy Crazy. Despite having only just dropped his new song Pico Pico Tokyo (feat. Momo Mashiro) recently, he just released a new song entitled Kizunami (cover) for digital download on August 16. The track is a cover of Kyary Pamyu Pamyu’s song Kizunami taken from her fourth studio album Japamyu which Nakata Produced. It is covered by virtual talent Kizuna AI who has almost 2.7 million subscribers on her YouTube channel.
To celebrate the release of the new song, Kizuna AI appeared as a surprise guest on Yasutaka Nakata and Kyary Pamyu Pamyu’s set at SUMMER SONIC 2019 which was held in Tokyo and Osaka. In a very special collaboration, she sang the song alongside Kyary―the singer of the original track.
As with the Osaka show, the RAINBOW STAGE at the Tokyo concert had an admission limit due to how much music fans were anticipating this stage.
When the intro to Fashion Monster started playing as the first song of Yasutaka Nakata’s set, the crowd’s excitement went straight through the roof. But it didn’t stop there however, as it shot into the stratosphere when Kyary Pamyu Pamyu walked onto the stage, clad in a beautiful white outfit.
Nakata and Kyary’s set was an energetic amalgamation of song mash-ups and alternative arrangements, treating the crowd to familiar hit after hit. It reestablished Nakata’s status as a spearhead of the industry.
He joined Kyary in front of his DJ booth for CANDY CANDY and waved his hands left and right with the crowd to Kyary’s directions. The two of them rolled out even more big numbers including Invader Invader, PON PON PON and Ninja Re Bang Bang which also had fun new arrangements.
When the intro to Kizunami started up, Kizuna AI’s chorus entered the fray at which Kyary asked, “Whose voice is that?” Kizuna AI suddenly appeared on the giant LED screen at the back of the stage, and the crowd reacted instantly. She riled everyone up by calling “Summer Sonic!” before joining Nakata and Kyary in a dream collaboration.
The 19-song set was up with Mondai Girl and finally Oto no Kuni during which the crowd waved their towels in unison.
Kizuna AI’s cover of Kizunami is now available for digital download and is streaming on Spotify.

Kizuna AI’s newest song Sky High (Prod. Yunomi) was released on June 30 and its full music video just dropped over on the virtual idol’s official YouTube page. The song was written and produced by Yunomi.
Kizuna AI’s 12th track to date, this marks her third song in collaboration with Yunomi following future base and new world. The powerful new anthem could be called a new phase for the virtual singer who has seen huge growth in such a short period of time with the release of her 9 singles across 9 weeks and performing her first solo show Kizuna AI 1st Live “hello, world” at the end of last year.
The music video takes a turn from her popular AIAIAI (feat. Yasutaka Nakata) music video which saw her performing alongside human dancers, and instead sees her performing on her own.
Two teaser videos were released for this new music video right before Kizuna’s 3rd birthday on June 30 which drew huge attention. The song was performed for the first time at her birthday party A.I. Party! 2019 〜 hello, how r u? 〜 on June 30. It shot straight to No. 1 on iTunes Store Japan’s electronic charts.
Yunomi has once again expressed Kizuna AI’s unique perspective in this exciting new music video.
