RADWIMPS – “Daijoubu” Music Video

The music video delicately weaves together the content of the song through the shots of the vast natural landscape and the workings of people.

 

Daijoubu is already drawing a great deal of attention after it was first performed on the NHK General TV documentary Weathering with You & Us: RADWIMPS x Makoto Shinkai which centres on the band’s journey with Weathering with You and the film’s director Makoto Shinkai. Shinkai describes Daijoubu as a song that exemplifies everything in the movie’s last scene.

 

The song is also now available to download independently of the album. Pre-orders for the album are now open on iTunes.

  • RADWIMPS Announce Role-Playing Music Themed Virtual Experience ‘SHIN SEKAI’

    04.December.2020 | MUSIC

    RADWIMPS have announced that they are launching a virtual live music experience by the name of ‘SHIN SEKAI’ on the virtual park system VARP which was developed by the Japanese creative collective PARTY. The concept of the project is “ROLE-PLAYING MUSIC” which will see RADWIMPS embarking to new territory in their career to deliver a unique experience to fans.

    RADWIMPS made the difficult decision to cancel and postpone their Japan tour and world tour as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The SHIN SEKAI project comes not because of tour cancellations and therefore to replace real live shows with virtual ones, but to instead embrace and explore what is possible for the band in terms of a virtual concert either way. It will offer fans a new way to enjoy RADWIMPS music.

    Message from RADWIMPS

    I had a tremendous dream a little before we went into discussions about VARP. There was a huge waterfall, and I saw buildings in ruin. I went through it all and saw groups of thousands of people. I’ve never had a dream like that before, and it left a real impression on me, and then I got the call [for this project]. I felt like it was far from a coincidence. I thought all of us going into this virtual space would give us a hint as to our futures, and so we set out on this journey together with everyone at PARTY.

     

    We still don’t know what lies ahead of us for the future, but I pray that by coming together closer than before by being inside the world of VARP we can share each others’ feelings. I would be happy to embark on this journey with all of you.

  • RADWIMPS Release New Song ‘Nekojarashi’ On Spotify and iTunes

    07.April.2020 | MUSIC

    RADWIMPS released their new song Nekojarashi on major download and streaming music services on April 5, 2020 including iTunes and Spotify.

    Nekojarashi began featuring as part of a new commercial for Kirin’s “Gogo no Kocha” (Afternoon Tea) brand of drinks last month. The song, like the commercial, is themed on those moments of happiness that are right in front of us. Two versions of the song were released digitally: the normal version, and an orchestral versionーthe latter of which is being used in the commercial and is featured under the name of the RADWIMPS frontman Yojiro Noda.

     

    The commercial started airing on Japanese TV last month. Japanese actress Kyoko Fukada is the face of the commercial, which promotes how there is happiness to be found in those casual moments in our everyday lives even if we do not notice them.

    A project has also been launched where people can take the frame of the Nekojarashi CD cover and create their own original cover by inserting a photo of themselves. Once uploaded, you can post on social media with the hashtag. Photos will then be selected to feature in a video. Full details can be found here.

     

    Yojiro Noda | Comment

    “The strengths that humans get used to is something amazing. Both the good and bad. For our own reasons, we seem to love and treasure having the breakfast we are so used to, the voice of someone saying ‘I’m home,’ the route we take back going home. The trick to living a fun life in this world might not be being overambitious, but the ability to notice those little joyful moments. Another thing is the existence of our selves with whom we spend every day with. Before we know it, we realise we didn’t actually know what that meant, so we take notice and live our lives knowing it. The me that I don’t even know might still be hidden away. That’s what I wrote this song about.”
