  • Nogizaka46 Reveal CD Cover Art For New Single ‘Shiawase no Hogoshoku’

    03.March.2020 | MUSIC

    Japanese idol group Nogizaka46 has released the CD cover art for their upcoming 25th single Shiawase no Hogoshoku (“Happiness Camouflage”) which is set to hit shelves in Japan on March 25, 2020.

    The photos for each edition of the single were taken by Japanese photographer Masanori Ikeda, whose photography work spans from the music industry to advertisement. The shots were taken in early February this year at a studio in Yokohama.

    The song is centred on graduation and dance, and imagines a prom that takes place in the near future aboard a spaceship.

    A large set was built in the studio to take the photos on. The members explained that it was difficult taking the photos wearing the astronaut helmets because their faces would never show up because of the lighting.

    The CD covers include Mai Shiraishi, as well as several members who are graduating from Nogizaka46 with this single. The spaceship theme conjures up an image of these members moving on to new heights.
