After a rumor about this a few days ago, it was just announced that Arashi will be releasing a new single. The single is entitled Meikyuu Love Song and as of right now doesn’t have a release date. The song will be used as the theme to Sakurai Sho’s upcoming drama Nazotoki wa Dinner no Ato de. A small preview of the song has also been released.
Arashi’s singles are always hit or miss for me. Anymore, they all sound the same. This song isn’t super amazing, but it’s not horrible either. It honestly sounds like a mixture of Dear Snow and Lotus. Which is a tad disappointing. I want another upbeat, interesting sounding song again. Give me another single like Crazy Moon, Believe, or Troublemaker, then I’ll be happy. I’m sick of the same recycled slow paced songs. Recently their singles have been lack luster and their album songs have been amazing. Which is the opposite of what I want. Since singles are made into PVs. But we did get super lucky with a PV for Mada Minu Sekai e. Which I will never understand why it wasn’t a single.
But I guess I shouldn’t judge this song just yet since it is only a 20 second preview. However, I doubt the verse is going to be better than the chorus.
