NEWS to release new single “EMMA”

Last year, NEWS presented “Koi wo Shiranai Kimi he” as the ultimate heart-wrenching love affair of one summer.  Now, they are back it again with a new single “EMMA” to be released on February 8!

“EMMA” is described as a love story that intertwines the stoic American view of the world and adult charm.  The title track will also serve as the opening theme song of an upcoming drama Kirawareru Yuuki (Courage to be Hated) starring NEWS’ Shigeaki Kato. 

Another aspect of this single to look forward to, is the inclusion of two older tracks “Sakura Girl” and “I・ZA・NA・I・ZU・KI”.  The two songs will be re-recorded versions with the 4 members.

      They already performed the song at the CDTV year-end special actually. I like it…. even though the song’s structure just seems like a rehash of KAGUYA. The choreo is awkward too, but I guess that’s the charm lmao. I’m really eager to hear the re-recording though. I always love when artists rerecord old tracks.
