Natsume’s Book of Friends The Movie: Tied to the Temporal World Music Video Released with Main Theme Song ‘remember’ by Uru
Uru will release her new single remember on September 26. The song will serve as the main theme song for the upcoming anime movie Natsume’s Book of Friends The Movie: Tied to the Temporal World. A collaborative music video was uploaded to Uru’s official YouTube channel on August 27.
This marks the J-pop singer’s first release since her first album Monochrome dropped in December last year and her first single since Kiseki which was used as the main theme song for the Japanese drama series Konodori.
Watch the music video below.
The music video captures the beautiful world of Natsume’s Book of Friends and its characters and links up perfectly with the song. Its a recipe that’s sure to warm the hearts of those who watch it.
“I have read the story of both the original manga and the movie. It’s a story about humans and spirits, but it’s rooted in the encounters and separations we experience in life and includes themes of isolation and loneliness, people’s gentleness and love. It’s a masterpiece that moves the heart. I want not just kids to watch it but adults too. And for that reason, I wanted the song to reflect that. I wrote the song for people to build on their experiences and feel warm inside after listening to it as it talks about how the heart moves during our encounters and separations in life, things which everyone has experienced at least once. I would be overjoyed if people can feel that when watching the movie.”
The music video is a special YouTube version and has different parts from the music video included in the limited pressing edition of the single which drops on September 26. Be sure to check out both videos.
Uru Unveils Cover Art for Her New Single ‘remember’ – Opening Theme to the Upcoming Natsume’s Book of Friends Movie
Uru will release her new single remember on September 26. The artwork for the single has now been unveiled.
This marks the J-pop singer’s first release since her first album Monochrome dropped in December last year. It is also her 6th single to date will serve to decorate the set-list of her second concert.
The single will be used as the main theme song for the upcoming anime film Natsume’s Book of Friends The Movie: Tied to the Temporal World which is based on the manga and anime Natsume’s Book of Friends by Yuki Midorikawa.
remember will be released in two versions: a limited pressing anime edition and regular edition. The anime edition features original artwork of the popular characters of Natsume’s Book of Friends, including the cute Nyanko-sensei from the movie who can divide himself into three cats.
Shiori Iwakura, a photographer gaining attention on Instagram, was in charge of the single’s regular edition artwork. The photo evokes the feeling of the end of summer with a beautiful moment caught of the stretching horizon on an ordinary day. It reinforces the images brought to mind by the song even more.
Iwakura also took the most recent artist photo of Uru which was released the other day. It’s a nostalgic portrait that was taken during a photo session in Kagawa Prefecture.
Since her debut, Uru has sung about the workings of the heart like its gentleness and the joy felt in everyday life, as well as the transience of existence. remember covers a variety of feelings including encounters with special people―something that anyone must have experienced―and the sadness and loneliness when separated from them, and the memories of them that continue in your mind when parting from them, which is mixed with emotions like love and warmth, knowing that it isn’t goodbye.
The song shows that Uru has taken a big step forward as both a singer and songwriter.
The single also includes the songs Gomen ne., an upbeat song by Uru, as well as a new recording of her famous cover of Masayoshi Yamazaki’s One more time, One more chance which she uploaded to YouTube before her debut, and a cover of Freesia, the ending theme for Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans.
The future is looking exciting for Uru as she goes on to grow and expand her musicianship.
