Ai-chan will release a new single called "Watashi" on February 15, the main plug will be used as the theme song for the dorama "Kirawareru Yuuki" (starring Karina, Kato Shigeaki and Shiina Kippei) which will start airing on January 12.
The B-Side "Sakura Hara Hara" will be used as a promotional song for the "FLOWERS by NAKED 2017 -Risshun-" event (you can watch a short video here to get an idea what the event is like).

The single comes in 4 editions:


[CD] AVCD-83774 ¥1,200 (tax out)


[CD+DVD] AVCD-83773/B ¥1,800 (tax out)


[CD+STYLE BOOK] AVCD-83772 ¥2,300 (tax out)


[CD+ Goods] AVC1-83775 ¥2,300 (tax out) (FC&mu-mo shop only)

Tracklist:
01. Watashi (私)
02. Sakura Hara Hara (サクラハラハラ)
03. Joshi Sherutā (女子シェルター)
04. Watashi (私) Instrumental
05. Sakura Hara Hara (サクラハラハラ) Instrumental
06. Joshi Sherutā (女子シェルター) Instrumental

The DVD includes the PV for "Watashi" and a PV making video.

Ai-chan said she wanted to create a song that carries a feeling of "Let's give our best tomorrow too" and "I'll live more". She also mentioned that the song has a "powerful melody that will push your back".

I literally came online the minute the news were posted so I immediately saw them. Laughing
I hope the tie-in will help her to chart well. But more importantly, I hope the new songs are good.

And a good music video as well!
This will be a up-tempo song, and from what I heard it sounds a bit like LOVE TRiCKY meets LOVE PiECE style.

Short video preview for Sakura Harahara

I think that's the song I like the most from this new single!
I don't understand why they aren't releasing the full video though. I mean, it's not even in the DVD so should we get the full one anytime soon?

It can only be purchased through the japanese iTunes store yet. But I think they will add the single in worldwide itunes stores on the release date, as well as in Spotify, so if you guys use that platform, don't forget to listen to the song since streaming is also counting!
