Aimer just released her two new albums Sun Dance and Penny Rain simultaneously on April 10. Both records have reached at No. 1 and No. 2 on popular music streaming services including iTunes, mora and Recochoku. Penny Rain also made it to No. 1 on Oricon’s Daily Album Chart while Sun Dance peaked at No. 2.
With two new albums out of the bag almost two and a half years since her last, Aimer has already released a brand new track.
Titled STAND-ALONE, the single was released yesterday (April 11), and it has been revealed that it will be used as the main theme for the upcoming Japanese drama Anata no Ban Desu.
The murder mystery stars Tomoyo Harada and Kei Tanaka as the leads. STAND-ALONE will be released digitally on May 5, 2019.
Aimer released the following statement regarding her involvement: “I am so happy to be in charge of the main theme song for another drama series. I’ve only just released my 5th studio albums Sun Dance and Penny Rain, but I decided to set off on another new adventure and so I made STAND-ALONE which I poured my recollections and yearnings into. The song is about a premonition that something is about to happen. I hope that it goes well with the world of Anata no Ban Desu every week.”
