Mr.Children to release their Doraemon Theme Songs as a Double A-Side Single in March

Back in November we reported that popular rock quartet Mr.Children would be performing the theme song for the latest film in the Doraemon series: “Eiga Doraemon Nobita no Shin Kyouryuu”. Now it’s been announced that the group will be providing a second track for the movie, and that both of these songs will be released as a Double A-side single on March 4th.

The new song, titled “Kimi to Kasaneta Monologue”, has been described as a heartwarming ballad meant to contrast the bright, adventurous tenor of its pair (“Birthday”). Both of these tracks were recorded in London’s RAK Studios with engineer Steve Fitzmorris, known for his work with U2 and Sting, and mastered by Scott Hull of Studio Masterdisk in New York.

You’ll find previews of the two songs, along with the single’s track list below.
