SCANDAL will produce a new song titled "Party" for singer-songwriter Rina Katahira's (ex-PlayYou.House [later called Goose house] member) new album Saikou no Shiuchi (最高の仕打ち; The Best Disservice).  The album will be released on February 3, 2016.

・SCANDAL's thoughts on producing music together
We were very happy that Rina wanted to work with us and gave us the offer!
It was our first time arranging another artist's song, but we worked out the arrangement while going in to the studio before recording and having sessions, and worked while having so much fun as it felt like the five of us were a band.
Our team grooves resemble each other's, so we were able to work it out harmoniously!

・SCANDAL's message to Rina Katahira:
We've heard it has the fastest BPM out of Rina-chan's library.
We apologize for the fast acoustic guitar stroking, too.
We believe that we have fulfilled our role.
Let's play a live together.
We are fans of yours. Thank you.
P.S. Let's go out for Turkish food.

The song /Party/ would be on-air today on Tokyo FM.

I'm not familiar with the artist but I would like to hear Scandals composition for the song.

Oohh cool Nice One
Scandal bringing their signature rock sound to another artist, its awesome.

I can imagine Scandal playing this live with miss Katahira on vocals/acoustic.


The singers voice is pretty nice here too, the high notes are killer.

Yeah, I thought the same thing heheh,

Here's the MV for Party 



And for those who can't watch because YouTube can stink sometimes and we don't live in Japan, here's a link to a proxy page.

I don't know if this is a whole video since it didn't say "short version" maybe on the release date a full pv would come out but who knows.

BTW, i really like this song. Love

Rina Katahira's commentary about "Party":

3. Party
Arrangement by SCANDAL. As I was writing it I imagined girls rocking out majestically, and first and foremost thought of SCANDAL. We worked together, and what I was reminded of is that--naturally--regardless of gender, they're a true rock band.

For those interested in the lyrics (although SCANDAL didn't help in writing them), here's my translation of "Party":




Spoiler:
Ah, the worst way to wake up
I want to cry if I can
But I'm in such a miserable mood
So I'll act like a grown-up and bear it
I want everything I desire
But I don't want to compromise
I don't need you, I don't need you

If I worry about those eyes of his
I won't be myself

Ah, the worst way to wake up
I want to bawl and annoy you
But I'm in such a miserable mood
So I don't need you anymore
I want everything I desire
But I don't want to compromise
I've forgotten about you now
So I don't need you anymore

I want to enjoy myself today
I want to laugh like this
Anything is okay
If not, then I can't take it anymore

The worst way to end things
Don't touch me in such a friendly way
It bothers me when you're together
With that cute girl from around there
I don't feel regret
I don't want to remember
Give everything back, give everything back

If I compare myself to those other girls
What a poor thing I'll become

Ah, the worst way to end things
I thought we were something special
Hey, don't lump me together
With that cute girl from around there
I don't want to remember
I don't feel regret
I want to take myself back
So return all of me
I don't need you anymore

I'll wear my favorite clothes
And put on gaudy makeup
I'll go out
Meet my friends
Get drunk off of alcohol
And dance until morning
I'll wear my favorite clothes
And put on gaudy makeup
I'll go out
Meet my friends
Get drunk off of music
And dance until morning

Ah, the worst way to wake up
I want to bawl and annoy you
But I'm in such a miserable mood
So I don't need you anymore
I want everything I desire
But I don't want to compromise
I've forgotten about you now
So I don't need you anymore

I want to enjoy myself today
I want to laugh like this
Anything is okay
If not, then I can't take it anymore
