Shiina Ringo Announces New Double A-side Single

A few weeks ago, a new smartphone CM starring Shiina Ringo debuted. In the commercial, a new song, “Kamisama, Hotokesama”, could be heard. Today, Ringo released information about the release of that song. It will be the second A-side on a double A-side single titled “Nagaku Mijikai Matsuri / Kamisama, Hotokesama.” This single will be released on August 5. Both songs will be released digitally beforehand though, with “Nagaku Mijikai Matsuri” out on July 10 and “Kamisama, Hotokesama” out on July 31.

“Nagaku Mijikai Matsuri” is the CM song for Coca Cola’s summer campaign. It’s described as a Brazilian-flavored dance tune. It features vocals by Ringo’s former Tokyo Jihen bandmate Ukigumo. The CM makes its television debut this coming Monday. It has made its way online already though and can seen after the jump along with the single’s cover!
