Czecho No Republic and Sky-Hi Co-Write Song “Time Travelling” to be Released on September 27th

08.August.2017 | MUSIC

Sky-Hi recently appeared alongside Czecho No Republic’s concert at ROCK IN JAPAN FESTIVAL 2017 at Hitachi Seaside Park in Ibaraki Prefecture on August 5th. Both artists performed their co-written track “Time Travelling” for the very first time, a song which was revealed to be the lead track to their upcoming single of the same time to be released on September 27th.

 

Czecho No Republic had been hinting at something new in the works for a while at their shows and on their blog. The result came to be the band trying something completely new – a co-written track – together with whom it was later revealed to be Sky-Hi.

Sky-Hi took on board Czecho No Republic’s thoughts and ideas and the two artists stood side-by-side and challenged themselves to making a track of their own. The song itself bears the wistful melodies of Czecho, threaded together by the emotional messages of Sky-Hi. The song demonstrates and elicits the mutual charm of each artist while at the same time displaying entirely new territory for them in a work that embodies something which evokes a sense of nostalgia in the listener.

 

The first press edition of the single comes with a jam-packed DVD containing the music video for “Time Travelling” directed by Hideaki Sunaga, as well as footage from the recording session of the song, a special documentary featuring both artists, and more.
