Mr.Children to perform the theme song for the Asadora “Beppin-san”
Long time no see! Life’s honestly been pretty crazy since I last posted here, but with things calming down at last and Mr.Children’s 25th anniversary coming up next year, I’d like to see if I can get things back on track. That meaning, I have Mr.Children news to post!
The band have announced that they’ll be providing the theme song for the next NHK morning drama (or Asadora), titled “Beppin-san”. The song itself is titled “Hikari no Atelier” (loosely means “Workshop of Light”) and has been described as a hopeful number that Sakurai says was originally written in the days following the Kumamoto earthquakes.
Based on concert reports from their “Niji” tour, performances of the song involve accordion, brass, and even have Tahara playing some kind of ukulele-like instrument. Why listen to me talk about it when you can hear a bit of it yourself though? So read on below to take a listen to the snippet of “Hikari no Atelier” that was included in the most recent trailer for “Beppin-san”.
