Whaaaaaaaaaat!? I was not expecting this at all! Can't see the video but downloaded the audio from it!

So this will be the next single? Great to know but this also probably means that Rainy won't get released as a single and that we will have to wait =( (or maybe as b-side for this single?!). I'm a bit sad if it's the case =(

About this song, well to be honest... it sounds ok but right now my first feeling is that it doesn't sound AWESOME. Gonna have to listen to it more later =P

Just watched the video through a proxy. It features the band and a string orchestra in a studio playing the new song, which I believe is actually called "Departure," according to the title of the video on YouTube. I'll try uploading it elsewhere if I can. wat will post it shortly.

Yeah it's not grabbing me initially either. It has a bit of a generic feel to it, like it could be a Southern All Stars song. I'll see if it grows on me.

It does seem like something they suddenly sprang on everyone, although I guess it is getting to be about that time each year when they start releasing singles. Usually that first single is an up-tempo harder song to wake everyone up from the winter; seems like they're trying something new this year.

Officially, they have NOT called this their new single just yet. It's too early to be assuming that.

I'm really liking this song too. Like Uldred said, it's really easy to listen to. 

The vibe of the song kind of reminds me of Kimi to Yoru to Namida.

Thanks for the share!

Glad to see that Scandal is still alive!

It is a very good song, but I wish that the orchestra (strings) could have been incorporated a little bit better.  Everyone sounds amazing, but I feel that the mix does not shine in too many parts other than the part before the chorus where Mami is doubling with them (at about the three minute mark).

Tomomi's voice sounds amazing on this song and Haruna's is great as well (I can't really hear Mami that well. Cry )

I am really enjoying the new songs coming out and I can not wait for more!

The song sounds very nostalgic & reminiscent and I didn't expect anything more than that, honestly. Today, it is the first anniversary of Wonderful Tonight after all. I wasn't thinking it was gonna be some rock masterpiece to commemorate that special event. I really like the song, and judging by some of the comments on youtube, the lyrics seem to have the biggest impact on those who can understand it.

The studio live completed with the string ensemble is amazing though IMO. The voices and harmonisation sound amazing and there are a few catchy parts here and there. I do agree with the comment above that in some parts the strings could've been better incorporated though. SCANDAL should really do more studio lives.

But still, I cannot understand the stupidity and logic of Epic/Sony. It looks like they'll be removing the video in 24 hours? Seems like non-Japanese and Japanese fans alike will have similar opinions on that matter...

Anyway, thanks for the share!

According to natalie.mu the video will be available for a limited time, it will be taken down on March 4, 12:00 JST. The song was produced and arranged by Seiji Kameda, while MAMI wrote the lyrics.

Yep, the song really had a nostalgic feel from it. Now that I'll be graduating in college, some of my memories where brought up about during those days that I was just getting use with the whole college life thing because of this song. I don't understand the lyrics, except for a few common Japanese words, but I think it's like looking back from where you were before leaving it all behind as your experience and lessons. Well that's I get from just listening to melody of the song though. UHUH! 


And as for the video, I also agree that they should have more studio live. Their stage lives were epic and all but the feel that you get from a studio live is laid back yet powerful at the same time.

I hope there's an English translation for the lyrics. THANKS FOR THE SHARE!!! Nice One

This also makes subsequent replays that much more sweeter to listen to Smile

Between HARU's stage performance and TOMO + MAMI going to driving school and getting their licenses, when would they possibly have had time to come over to the US and bring over a Japanese string section as well? lol. Pretty sure they shot it at the Sound City studios in Tokyo. http://www.soundcity-w.com

I really like this song. I notice a lot of Japanese spring songs give off this nostalgic feeling and many of them are also about goodbyes where they'll be sakuras in some of the lyrics. Maybe because its the end of the Japanese school year?

I like this one!With their recent PVs are of live performance, Scandal is treated more as a real band.
Maybe Sony/Kitty are now getting smarter to aware what their fans expect from them.
I also have a feeling Sony is testing the water with preview of couple of their new tunes early via media and see the response before the final decision on the next single.
