I am awed with Yonezu’s love of music and creativity.

The song that I helped with called “fogbound” is a song where the listener can feel various colors.

I hope that listeners will listen to the song using their five senses without thinking about anything.

I was hoping to sing with her since the day I heard her singing on Instagram.

The recording of the song proceeded smoothly after I noticed that her whispering voice matches well with the foggy atmosphere of the song.

Do not miss the works of Kenshi Yonezu!
