Speaking of the single in a press statement, Yoshioka said: “Life is unpredictable, and there is no stable future. If life is unpredictable anyway, I thought maybe I should just live freely.”

The single will form the opening track of Yoshioka’s upcoming album, which was born from the raw emotions of the uncertain days during the pandemic.

It will mark the Japanese musician’s first project in five years, and is said to include collaborations and an accompanying world tour.
