Last month we reported that popular rock act Mr.Children would be releasing a brand new single, their second of the year, on July 26th. A preview of the lead track, “himawari”, has now been made available in the newly released trailer for film “Kimi no Suizou wo Tabetai”, which it will be serving as the theme song for.
The trailer focuses on the older I’s (Shun Oguri) reflection and reconsideration of the past, marking the first time that any of this narration has been heard. These scenes are well complemented by “himawari”, which combines emotive strings with a bracing band sound led by guitar and drums.
You’ll find this trailer, and as such the snippet of “himawari” right after the cut.
