“Hanatareru” Full Radio Rip

May 19, 2014

I’m back!  Quicker than expected, but not for long.  Just wanted to make a post with a link to the full (radio-ripped) version of this song, since I actually really like it.  In terms of ballads … they haven’t written one this good in some time.  I’m pleased with both the vocals and the arrangement on “Hanatareru” and am now a fair bit more curious about their new album considering the two tracks we have thus far.  Anyway, enjoy:

Mr.Children to provide theme song for movie “Seiten no Hekireki”!

February 13, 2014

Well, it’s been a while since I’ve updated, but we finally have some news worth talking about!

It was announced today that Mr.Children will be providing the theme for the film “Seiten no Hekireki” (“A Bolt from the Blue”), which is based on the 2010 novel of the same name written by Hitori Gekidan.  The song is titled “Hanatareru” (放たれる; Emergent – not quite sure on that translation) and is described as a mid-tempo ballad with a bright message.  The method of delivery for the song has yet to be decided, but the movie will release on May 24th of this year.  I’ll provide a brief preview of the song below – enjoy!

Blood Orange Tour Spot + “Not Found” Performance

December 4, 2013

Today, Mr.Children uploaded the CM for their Tour DVD/Blu-ray and the rendition of “Not Found” from the Tour itself to their official Youtube channel.  I’ll link the videos below, but I really like the look of this concert – seems somewhat more theatrical than what they usually do, at least for the opening.
