"STORY," with accompanying footage of them in the studio can be heard and viewed in the trailer for the "band side" of Airi's album (from 0:32):






Here's my English translation for "STORY":

Spoiler:
STORY
Lyrics: RINA ~ Music & Arrangement: MAMI

Why do I feel empty
In this city in my hands?
The always advancing hands of the clock
Press against my back and leave me breathless

"You can still do it - stand up
It'll be okay," you say
Every time I'm shown kindness and it makes me want to cry
You're there

I've jumped over the limits and made it to today
It's not a lie
I met you who loves me
No matter what
I want to overtake this distance and protect you
No matter what happens
Our distorted footprints are stories no one can take away
I want to move forward with you tomorrow too

I'll go back to the pages I skipped over
And underline them so that I won't forget
Your voice fills the gaps in my heart
Because there no such thing as a single correct answer

"You can still do it - stand up
There's still much more you want to show"
You're with me
As I grow selfish in this dream I can't wake up from

I want to see you over and over again, and the same goes for today
It's enough to make me laugh
No one else can take your place
You're precious to me
Let's cut away these moments and change
The best story is where time passes
And makes us want to cry when we look back
I want to create that kind of future with you

I'll pray for something
On the stars falling through the sky I looked up to
Because the tears from that day make "right now" shine

I've jumped over the limits and made it to today
It's not a lie
I met you who loves me
No matter what
I want to overtake this distance and protect you
No matter what happens
Our distorted footprints are stories no one can take away
I want to move forward with you tomorrow too

If I understand correctly, the recording of the instruments is also done by Scandal! Hope there will be a video of them in the studio.

It's amazing to see scandal slowing growing from a group of girls knowing nothing about instrument, bands, to a band that could barely preform, to artists preforming with songs produced by others, and artist producing their own songs, and finally to artists who could produce song for others. It's just amazing!!

Sugoi! I hope they make more collaborations and at the same time produce for other artists too. They have a history with Airi so it's nice that they produced a song for her. This could mean we'll see them together on stage again when she performs live  SCANDAL writes + produces a song for Airi Suzuki's solo debut album 1f600

They already gained reputation and respect as musicians and song writers couple of years ago.
Also invited to drink/meal by other rockers. That I didn't seen another girls band did.
I wondered if any member of other bands they meet approaches any of them?

That's why I love them so much. Watching them grow in real time has been the most amazing and fascinating experience.

sounds cute and upbeat.
They definitely bring out their pop sound more when they compose for others.

Here's a radio rip of about a minute and a half of "STORY," the song SCANDAL wrote for Airi Suzuki's upcoming solo debut album:



Airi: This was announced the other day, but my beloved SCANDAL even produced this song! I also had HARUNA sing harmonies. They also recorded the instruments―the four of them did everything, and this collaboration is on the album.

Cuz they've been making songs for pop idols or pop singers. Would actually like to see them make songs for other rock bands, I wanna know what Scandal can come up with for other bands.

The song sounds good lol. Like the instrumentals, has a very Scandal punk feel. All I know about Airi is that she good friends with the band lol...I think.  Whistle

Or maybe they will go the Bruce Springsteen route and just play the songs as part of their live set.  Then in true Bruce fashion release a live album and box set containing all the songs written for other artists.

There is a behind the scenes recording session feature of this song that SCANDAL twitter retweeted. It would be awesome if that could be translated, very curious to the bands approach towards making and recording a song!

Since this news came out, it has been a double kill for me as I'm also a fan of Hello!Project and Suzuki Airi.

And looks like they also made an appearance in the latest episode of Upcoming, a youtube web show of UP-Front Agency :D (Starts at 27:44)
