Ed Sheeran, Satoshi Fujihara (Official HiGE DANdism), and other top artists and creators from both Japan and abroad contributed to the album.


    The limited first edition includes a bonus DVD with two acoustic tracks, allowing listeners to hear the differences between the original arrangements and the different lyrics found on the international versions.
