Kanjani8 releases “Samurai Song” PV and new arrangement of “Heavenly Psycho”

Check out the latest music video from Kanjani8 from their latest single “Samurai Song” released last December 2. The song is currently used as theme song for Nishikido Ryo’s drama “Samurai Sensei”. Rekishi (Ikeda Takafumi) produced the song, a straightforward love song that focuses on earnest and faithful feelings which are on the brink of being forgotten in modern times, the feeling of single- mindedly waiting to go out to battle and the power of the words “welcome home”.

The single also includes a re-arranged version of the song Heavenly Psycho. The fan-favorite song was originally released under the group’s second single Osaka Rainy Blues in 2005. Piano and trumpet open the song in the new arrangement.

      both versions of HPsycho are so pretty , i love the intro ( especially the trumpet ) and i’m enjoying so much this trend of releasing new versions of the classics on the new singles :) I would love to hear a new ver of Mugendai !

      Samurai Song is great as well but i’m not too fond on the MV ( i love the cinematography tho except for that horrible and random CG in the 2nd half )

      I like their band songs, but it can sound a bit bland sometimes like this one. And this would sound nicer with better vocals… I like the second song! It’s cute.
