MONDO GROSSO Joined by Ryuichi Sakamoto, Hikari Mitsushima, and UA for “IN THIS WORLD”

On February 9, MONDO GROSSO will release his new album, “BIG WORLD.” This album is self-titled in a way, with “MONDO GROSSO” meaning “BIG WORLD” in Italian. The album’s concept is a musical journey that searches for heart in a world that has changed and is continuing to change.

The album will feature an array of collaborators, including Mika Nakashima, Seiko Oomori, CHAI, Awesome City Club‘s PORIN, and Nogizaka46‘s Asuka Saito.

Ahead of the release of “BIG WORLD”, the music video for the song “IN THIS WORLD” has been released. The song features Hikari Mitsushima on vocals and Ryuichi Sakamoto on piano. UA wrote the song’s lyrics. Hikari previously worked with MONDO GROSSO on the viral hit “Labyrinth” from his 2017 album “Nandodemo Atarashiku Umareru.” The music video for “Labyrinth” has been viewed over 30 million times on YouTube.
