Up-and-coming singer/songwriter Kenshi Yonezu has announced that he will be releasing a new single titled “orion” on February 15th.  His first such release in nearly half a year, the lead song has already been picked up as the second ending theme for anime “Sangatsu no Lion”.

This new single will be issued in three versions:  a regular CD-Only edition, a special “orion” edition which includes a clear print of the cover packaged in a hard case, and a “Lion” edition which will come packaged with a DVD in a paper-based casing.  Ahead of the single’s release, a radio edit of “orion” will be airing on popular program “SCHOOL OF LOCK!” later this week on January 6th.

      I usually find more pleasure in his videos than in his music but I do like a few tracks, Santa Maria was great !

        It took me a while until everything clicked with Kenshi; I don’t think it really did until “Bremen”, honestly. Musically it’s the level of sonic diversity that he brings to the table which has kept me interested, since he draws inspiration from such a sundry of different sources that it’s always interesting to see just how they’ll come together.

          btw, is there a way to contact you directly? I know a few bands and artists that might interest you and provided you don’t know them (and like them of course) maybe you could publish something one day. Or I could leave a few links in the next open posts?

            It’s times like this that I really wish Disqus had a private messaging system of some description, since it would make things so much easier. That said, I do have an account on Onehallyu (under the same name), so contacting me there is always an option, or you can just shoot me an email at (Minus the period at the end, obviously.)
