It was announced that KAT-TUN will be releasing their 17th single. The single is entitled Birth and will be released on November 30th. The song will used as the theme song for Kame’s upcoming drama Youkai Ningen Bemu. And poor Ueda who’s drama drama is being aired the same time doesnt get a KAT-TUN song as his theme. But they can make more money from Kame then they can Ueda. Limited Edition Type B of the single also has a PV and making for a yet to be titled song. Which is exciting, it’s another Love Yourself/The D-Motion situation.
I’m really looking forward to a new KAT-TUN single, mostly because we might get a silver haired Kame in the PV. Since it’s a wig it seems a little unlikely, but I’m still crossing my fingers. Since Kame’s drama seems to have a darker theme, I would love if the single matched that. Something heavy and rockish along the lines of Chang UR World, Lips, or Keep The Faith. I’d even settle for a song like Yorokobi No Uta, which is pretty much upbeat rock music. The only real drawback is that KAT-TUN’s drama theme songs never really have anything to do with the drama itself. Rescue and Love Yourself have really nothing to do with the dramas they are the theme for.
