Shiina Ringo to sing theme song for Nakai Masahiro’s upcoming drama, ‘ATARU’
It’s been a little over a month since the disbandment of Tokyo Jihen, and now, Shiina Ringo has officially resumed her solo career! She will be providing her new song, “Jiyuu e Michizure“, for the upcoming drama, ‘ATARU’.
Starring SMAP’s Nakai Masahiro, ‘ATARU’ tells the story of a man with autism and savant syndrome, who solves various cases using his extraordinary memory and deductive skills. The drama also stars Kuriyama Chiaki, Kitamura Kazuki, Tamamori Yuta (Kis-My-Ft2), Chihara Seiji, and Mitsumune Kaoru (AKB48 Research Student).
Shiina wrote this new song to match the drama’s content after receiving multiple requests from the production staff. It’s described as an uptempo rock song that can be described with the phrase, “strong fire”.
“Jiyuu e Michizure” will be released in Chaku-Uta form on April 15th, which is also the opening night of the drama.
