back number to release New Single “HAPPY BIRTHDAY” in February

Just shy of two months after the release of their most recent single, pop-rockers back number have announced that they will be releasing another on February 27th.  Titled “HAPPY BIRTHDAY”, this will be the group’s 20th single together and will include the title track as well as a pair of B-sides.  Of note, the lead song has already been picked up as the theme song for TBS drama “Hajimete Koi wo Shita Hi ni Yomu Hanashi”.

In usual fashion, “HAPPY BIRTHDAY” will be issued in two versions, with the Limited Edition to come packaged with a DVD which includes both the music video and making-of footage for the A-side, as well as a digest video containing footage from back number’s recent dome tour.
