On February 24, Hata Motohiro will release his new single, “Sumire.” The song serves as the theme song for the TV Asahi drama “Sumika Sumire”, starring Kiritani Mirei. Motohiro wrote the uptempo love song after reading the manga that inspired the drama.
Motohiro appears as an old man on the covers of this single. This mirrors the plot of “Sumika Sumire”, where an old woman suddenly wakes up one morning to find herself young again.
The short music video for “Sumire” has now been released. It features Motohiro walking down the street singing the song, accompanied by flowers that have sprang into human form. Check it out after the jump, along with more information on the single!
