Previously we reported that electronic-rock act Sakanaction’s new song “Shin Takarajima” was set to be used as the theme song for the upcoming live-action adaptation of the popular manga series Bakuman. At the time no information about the track’s release had been made public, but the band have now confirmed that the song will be released as a maxi-single on September 30th of this year.
The group’s 11th single, “Shin Takarajima” will be issued in three versions: a regular CD-Only edition, a CD+DVD edition which will include both a Special Movie and the Making-Of footage for this feature, and a deluxe 2CD+DVD boxed edition which contains an additional disc with all of the music that the band composed for the Bakuman movie merged together into a single 30+ minute track titled “MOTION MUSIC OF BAKUMAN.”. Of note, this marks the first time that Sakanaction have ever worked on the soundtrack for a motion picture.
There will be two additional songs included on the single, with those details scheduled to be announced at a later date along with the visual style for the cover.
