NAOTO of ORANGE RANGE who are celebrating their 10th anniversary and just released a new album “NEO POP STANDARD” (release details) is producing this single for SCANDAL and commented: “I made an image of the girls beyond just the girls of the band. We didn’t want to limit the scope of our imagination for the girls, as such a “Taiyo Scandalous”. I pushed to bring an exciting song and representative of the Summer.

Release details are still early and subject to change so please check back to Comtrya Sugoi for updates when announced.
