NEW SINGLE: Hanataba (2015.10.28 out)

Postby Utena » Thu Oct 15, 2015 3:57 pm

Mika-chan will release her brand new single « Hanataba » on October 28th. The title track was written and composed by Tamaki Koji, and is described as a heartwarming ballad song that will change the hesitation and pain you have to face every day into joy and gratitude.

« Hanataba » will also be used as the theme and insert song for Fuji TV’s drama Otona Joshi to be premiered on October 15th.

Mika-chan commented, « my latest single, Hanataba was decided to release on October 28th. The song was newly written by Tamaki Koji-san. In hard times, when you are likely to feel discouraged, holding an « unchanging welcoming » hand which leads you to make the next step, and the one after that…I think that this gentleness was nicely transcribed in the song. And we have also determined that the song would be the theme song of the drama « Otona Joshi ». I’ll be glad if you could listen to it and enjoy along with the drama. »

Actress Shinohara Ryoko, who is the lead of the drama, also commented on the song: « With Nakashima-san singing to Tamaki-san’s song, I thought it would be a wonderful fit. I am already looking forward to how this mature ballad will add grace to the drama. »

The b-side of the single will be previously released song, « Ai no Uta », which was an insert song for TBS’ drama « Omotesando Koukou Gasshoubu! ». It was written and composed by Maekawa Shingo of Kariyushi58.

I roughly translated the lyrics...........

:arrow:
あふれる涙を あたたかな花束にして

朝の光を浴びて そっと寄りそうのは誰?
昨日の哀しみ達の ささやきが聴こえてくる

見ず知らずのモノに 水を与えてくれて
ありがとう! かえせるものは 何にもないけれど

あなたと あなたの
まわりの 大切なモノ
全てを 想います
あふれる涙を あたたかな花束にして

月の光を浴びて そっと祈ってるのは誰?
明日への不安達の 誓いが聴こえてくる

通りすがりのモノに 道を教えてくれて
ありがとう! もう迷わない 歩き出してみる

わたしと わたしの
まわりの 苦しみや痛み
全てを 笑って
あふれる涙を ゆるしてくれるのなら
花束にして

あなたと あなたの
まわりの 大切なモノ
全てを 想います
あふれる涙を あたたかな花束にして
あふれる想いを あたたかな花束にして

:arrow:
Turning a flood of tears into a warm bouquet

Who is it that is quietly cuddling in the morning light?
I can hear the whisper of sorrows of yesterday

Thanks for supplying water to a person unfamiliar!
Although I can't return anything

You and precious things around you
I think of all of them
Turning a flood of tears into a warm bouquet

Who is it that is quietly praying in the moon light?
I can hear the vow of anxieties about tomorrow

Thanks for showing the way to a person passing by!
Now I won't lose the way and I'll start walking

Me and pain and suffering around me
I laugh off all of them
Turning a flood of tears into a bouquet if it's allowed

You and precious things around you
I think of all of them
Turning a flood of tears into a warm bouquet
Turning a flood of thoughts into a warm bouquet

Mika-chan commented on PV.............
:arrow:
"In a super-cold rain, it was so hard to film scenes of running barefoot and falling down on the ground, but I'm really happy that the worldview of the lyrics was sufficiently depicted and the video turned out to be a very beautiful piece."

:idea:
Filmed at the base of Mt. Fuji by Tadokoro Takashi who directed such as Legend, Seppun, My Sugar Cat, Ashita Sekai ga Owarunara, Hatsukoi, Sakura~hanagasumi, Game and was in charge of Art direction of SAMSARA.
