NEWS Releases PVs for “Hikari no Shizuku/ Touch” and announces LIVE TOUR 2016

NEWS has released the music videos for their double A-side single titled “Hikari no Shizuku/ Touch“, which dropped last January 20.

Both songs show NEWS’ refined “classic style”. Hikari no Shizuku is a support song that gently shines a light on the troubles and doubts of young people, whereas “Touch” is a light, pop love song. The music videos presents a contrast, with a darker theme for “Hikaru no Shizuku” and a colorful setting for “Touch”.

“Hikari no Shizuku” is used as the theme song of Fuji TV drama “Kasa wo Motanai Aritachi wa”, based on the short story collection novel of the same name written by member Shigeaki Kato while “Touch” is used as the CM song for Nissen [Touch n] starring the group.

Moreover, the group has announced their LIVE TOUR 2016. The first leg will start on March 26 in Sapporo and end in June 12 at Tokyo Dome.
