After debuting with her first single "Shunkashuutou" just over a month ago, singer-songwriter NIKIIE is already preparing for her next release, titled "HIDE&SEEK" and set to drop on March 9th.
Though it retains the pop melody of her previous single, as well as her own distinctive characteristics as an artist, "HIDE&SEEK" is said to be an impressive rock tune with a refreshingly fast arrangement handled by Nomura Yoichiro, formerly of the now-disbanded unit Nichika and more recently active as a part of the hit-making production group agehasprings. The song is currently featured in the new 2011 Yoyogi Seminar CM, airing country-wide as of January 11th, and will also be available for purchase through Recochoku as early as January 19th.
Following the single's release, NIKIIE will also begin her first one-man tour "It's ME, NIKIIE TOUR!!" in April with performances in Tokyo, Nagoya and Osaka.
