NYC-Yumetamago preview

With a little less than a month until the release of NYC’s 3rd single, Yumetamago, we finally have a radio rip of the song. However, the preview is only 2 minutes long which is probably only about half the song. And the radio host starts talking through the last 30 seconds so it’s almost inaudible at the end. I mean, you can obviously still hear the song it’s just a little annoying to strain to hear it.

The song sounds pretty much on par with what NYC has been releasing up until now. But I am a little surprised by how tame the music actually is. The song is being used as the ending for an anime movie, but the music isn’t really intense anime music like it could be. It’s actually pretty similar music wise to Yoku Asobi Yoku Manabe. Where the music stays the same volume nearly the whole time and hardly changes. When this single was first announced I said how I was looking forward to another song along the lines are Yoku Asobi Yoku Manabe, but now that the song is, I wish it was a little different. I guess there’s no pleasing me. XD I do really enjoy the song though. NYC blends really well together and most of the song is group parts, just like all of their past singles. I think it’s a really adorable song. And despite it being for kids it’s not too childish sounding. Which could be a real problem. Does Lilpri ring a bell, anyone?

NYC announces new single

Hey! Say! JUMP sub-group (and possibly Nakayama Yuma w/BI Shadow sub-group?) NYC announced that they will be releasing a new single called Yumetamago. The song will be used as the ending theme for the upcoming Nintama Rantaro Ninjutsu Gakuen Zenin Shutsudou no Dan anime movie. The single will be released on March 9th.

You can already pre-order it from CDJapan. (Just click the links below.)

I do have some mixed feelings about this new single. I am excited for it don’t get me wrong, but I would be way more amped for another Hey! Say! JUMP! CD. But us JUMP fans can’t really complain with 2 singles, and almost 2 DVDs in 2010. (Summary was the very beginning of 2011, so it still really felt like 2010. XD) I am also sad because this single is being used for an anime so it’s most likely going to sound a lot like Yuuki 100%. I much preferred the direction Yoku Asobi Yoku Manabe was heading NYC towards. But I guess I’ll have to wait fro the preview before I judge the song. Also having the song being called Yumetamago makes me automatically think of Buono and Shugo Chara Egg. XD
