Taking on Time Travel

Catching up with news for NEWS they have a new single coming out this month on the 13th.

It will be the theme song for the Japanese drama series, Toki o Kakeru Shoujo (The Girl Who Leapt Through Time), that will air in the 2016 summer drama season. Kato Shigeaki will have a role in the drama as a teacher.

The single comes in three versions and the A-side is titled Koi wo Shiranai Kimi e.

The limited edition has the title track, a B-side titled Smile and a DVD that has the PV on it.

The regular edition is just a CD that has the two tracks the LE does as well as two bonus B-sides and the karaoke track of the title song.

The third version is a bundle of the two versions with some bonus extras exclusive to it. The exclusives are a box to hold the CDs as well as a bonus DVD that has the making of footage for the PV on it.

And even though there is a bundle version CDJapan has a bundle available for each of the three versions, for those fans that need a copy of each.

I made sure to get a copy of the third version when it became available since LEs with NEWS do tend to be pretty limited in quantity. Not to mention it seemed like a no brainer seeing that it is basically the RE and LE bundled together with some extras.

It's if effort would have hurt.

While I am excited for a new single from the group I really wish they would do something about their covers. Up to Chumu Chumu they were fine but the four headshots slapped on an uninspired background is quickly getting stale. Especially when their music videos continue to look good.
