NON's 2nd Full Album "PURSUE" announced, release live determined + MV of preceding song "Kono Hibi yo Uta ni Nare" released!


The music video of NON's new song "Kono Hibiyo Yo Uta ni Nare", which will be the theme song for the Japanese dubbed version of the movie "YUSHI Shonen/Lion Boy", premiered on Wednesday, April 12, at 20:00.

At the same time, the release of Non's 2nd full-length album "PURSUE" and release live performances in Tokyo and Osaka were announced!
PURSUE" contains not only Non's lyrics, but also collaborative works with various people, including "Kono Hibiyo Yo Uta ni Nare" (This Day Will Become a Song), a song provided by Takahiro Shibata of Ogenran-neyo, whose music video was distributed earlier this year.
The CD also includes the song "Watashi wa Ya Ya Mitsu" (provided by Shibata of Ogenran nayo), "Namaikini Skirt" (provided by two former members of GO! GO! 7188, Yu (Chirinuru wowaka) and Noma Akiko), and "Aliens," a cover song by Kirinji that was performed in a (then) commercial for LINE MOBILE by Non, which has already been released on the CD. These songs are also being released on CD for the first time.
The CD will also include "Boku wa Kimi no Taiyo", "Mushasya", and "Kocchi wo Miteiru", all previously unreleased live tunes that are well-known at NON's live performances, and will be included for the first time.
As the title "PURSUE" suggests, this album will be a symbolic album of Non's 20s, including songs that have yet to be revealed, and a glimpse into her endless pursuit!

To coincide with the album release, the band will be holding their first live performance in 4 years since their last album "Baby Face" on July 13th, the date of Non's birthday, at Zepp Haneda in Tokyo on 7/9 and at Quattro in Umeda, Osaka on 7/17.
Tickets will be available through NON KNOCK, NON's official fan club, from tomorrow, 4/13 at noon, so please check out NON KNOCK for more information!

<Message from Non>
I finally got to announce the album "PURSUE" which I have been wanting to tell you all about since last year. I am so happy!
The album was completed with the best collaborations, the best members, and the best creativity, not to mention Non's original songs. We are proud to present it to you!
PURSUE" means to pursue.
PURSUE" means to pursue. It represents the fact that NON has been and will continue to pursue her own creations.
It is a powerful, courageous, and strongest album that will deliver a part of her endless pursuit to all of you.
We will also be announcing collaborations that are still unreleased and will surprise everyone.
I'm itching for you to listen to it.
I'll be in Osaka as well as Tokyo on the tour!
Aaaaahhhh, I'm so excited.
Wait and see!

「Let these days be a song」
Kono Hibiyo Yo Uta ni Nare" is a powerful middle ballad written by Takahiro Shibata based on an episode he had with NONO. The music video was directed by filmmaker Tomokazu Yamada, and the image of NONO running in the "rain" leaves a strong impression.
