Mr.Children to release first physical single in over 2 and a half years

As previously reported, popular rock band Mr.Children will be performing the theme song for Fuji TV’s Getsu 9 drama ‘Nobunaga Concerto’, starring Shun Oguri.  Now, the band have announced that they’ll be releasing the theme, ‘Ashioto ~Be Strong’ as a physical single on November 19th.

This will be the first time that Mr.Children have issued a physical single in 2 years and 7 months, since their triple A-side release ‘Inori ~Namida no Kidou / End of the day / pieces’ back in April of 2012.  There will only be one version of the CD printed, containing the title track and two coupling songs:  a remastered version of ‘Hanatareru’, their theme for the movie ‘Seiten no Hekireki’, and ‘Melody’, a new track which is said to represent the ‘current position’ of the band.

Check out the single’s cover and a preview of ‘Ashioto ~Be Strong’ in the drama’s official trailer below!
