Kenshi Yonezu unveils lavishly animated Music Video for “Umi no Yuurei”

Back in April we reported that popular singer Kenshi Yonezu will be performing the theme song for the upcoming animated feature “Kaijuu no Kodomo”. Ahead of its June 3rd digital release, the music video for this track – “Umi no Yuurei” – has now been uploaded to Yonezu’s YouTube channel.

Originally screened at a special pre-release event on the Tokyo Bay, the PV is composed of footage from the aforementioned film which has been edited together to better pair with the electronic ballad. Of note, this release marks the first time that Kenshi has not designed the cover visuals himself, instead leaving the task to “Kaijuu no Kodomo” mangaka Daisuke Igarashi.

You’ll find both this cover and the visually striking music video for “Umi no Yuurei” below.
