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.
This is fairly major news, so I figured that it was definitely worth covering. Mr.Children finally opened their own youtube channel today and with it uploaded 20 HQ PVs from across their career for worldwide viewing. Included among them is the PV for their newest release, “REM”. It’s great to see them finally take this step and I hope to see their future music videos uploaded there too, since it would be a great resource going forward. Below are the links to both the youtube channel and the REM video – enjoy!
This will most likely be a fairly quick post, but I certainly think that it’s something worth putting up here. For the first time, Mr.Children have officially published a Short PV to youtube; the Short Version of “REM” ‘s PV is up on the “Real” movie’s official youtube channel. It’s … a pretty interesting piece of work honestly, and I’m really curious to see how it ends. Let me know what you think below!

Just a quick update on the REM Digital Single that I feel is worth posting. Today Mr.Children released both the single’s cover and the promotional image for the song’s PV (as well as gave their website a much needed visual update from it’s blood orange days). I like the visual style for both images, although I will concede that the cover is kind of strange. So, have a look at the pictures below and let me know what you guys (and girls) think!
Here’s a Radio Rip of the New Song (“REM”): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VIwgkd8-_Ro
I love this song to death. xD
I’ve actually been fairly busy myself lately, but luckily there hasn’t really been any news to report until today. So let’s dive into that!
Mr.Children have announced that they will be releasing their new song, “REM”, as a digital single on May 29th. The song is also being used as the theme song for the movie “Real ~Kanzen naru Kubinagaryu no Hi~”, which hits Japanese theaters on June 1st. Based on the previews, the movie appears to be some kind of psychological thriller with a bit of action thrown in for good measure.
For those of you who haven’t heard the preview for “REM” yet, have a peek at it right here:
I’m excited, both to hear Mr.Children return to making more rockish music and to hear anything new from them honestly.
So, what do you think of the preview and how do you think the full version of “REM” is going to sound? Be sure to let me know!
Firstly, what do you think of [an imitation] blood orange?
