AKB48 member Yuki Kashiwagi is prepping for the release of her first standard single release in 7 years! “CAN YOU WALK WITH ME??” is her third single overall, for this release she teamed up with the founder of WACK Junnosuke Watanabe. WACK is most known for the “alternative” idol groups BiS and BiSH.
In the MV Yuki can be seen walking down a windy road while various photos from her 13+ career blow into her face. As she continues down the path she’s faced with various harsh elements, first fire and then a heavy rainfall. Finally she reaches the end of the tunnel, and is greeted to a bright sunny day. Check out the full MV below!
Yuki jokingly commented that due to the extreme wind, fire, and then rain filming the MV almost felt like punishment games commonly seen on variety shows. She loved working with Junnosuke and the entire staff, and is happy with the end product. Junnosuke was also full of compliments for Yuki, praising her status as a legendary idol and calling it one of the best MVs he’s ever worked on.
“CAN YOU WALK WITH ME??” will be released on March 3rd, 2021. The single will feature two more new songs titled “You and I” and “Why don’t you??”.
Besides the standard CD only, a luxe limited edition blu-ray version will be released for 9091 yen. It will be housed in deluxe packaging with the blu-ray featuring the full MV for “CAN YOU WALK WITH ME??” and her “Netemo Sametemo Yukirin World” dinner show concert. It will also include a 63 piece puzzle.
