back number publish sweet yet somber Music Video for “Christmas Song”

Up and coming pop-rock band back number will be releasing their latest single “Christmas Song” on November 18th.  The lead song is currently being used as the theme for the popular Getsu9 drama “5→9  ~Watashi ni Koi Shita Obosan~”, a story about the love which blossoms between an English lecturer (Ishihara Satomi) and a Buddhist monk (Yamashita Tomohisa).

Ahead of the single’s release, the band have chosen to make the music video for “Christmas Song” available for public viewing on their label’s Youtube channel.  The PV combines several shots of couples enjoying the titular season together with the band’s performance of the song amidst a snowy Chiba cityscape.

Read on below for a look at both the suitably seasonal MV and the single’s cover and track list.
