Vanilla Beans announced new single Uchouten Girl (有頂天ガール) and revealed all the release details plus the full music video. Their 12th single features songs from late composer Inoue Daisuke (1941-2000) including the previously unreleased title track produced as a 2014 fight-song. Single Uchouten Girl comes on two editions hitting stores November 11th 2014 – read on for all the details and MV.
The single also includes coupling track Kiss Hamenishite Poe! (キッスは目にして ぽお!) a popular CM song for Kanebo cosmetics in the 80’s. Inoue Daisuke, ex-member of the influential rock band Blue Comets (1963-1972), as a solo artist composed many songs and released solo albums from 1976 – 1999.
Member Rena commented on her love for Inoue Daisuke’s music and their challenge for the 80’s revival single, “We’re really happy we can sing Mr. Inoue’s song as a Vanilla Bean’s original. I hope that this song, themed as a “fight song”, can become music for even one person supporting lots of others from behind.”
Vanilla Beans, who will celebrate their 8th anniversary with a solo live December 18th 2014, most recently released 11th single Kitto ii Basho / Zettai Panty Line (きっといい場所 / 絶対パンティーライン) on June 18th 2014.
