Performed, directed and edited by... All NON! MV "Standing in the Wilderness" premieres on the album release date 6/28 at 21:00! NON will also join the YouTube chat!
NON's 2nd Full Album "PURSUE" will finally be released and distributed tomorrow, June 28 (Wed.).
The new song "Standing in the Wilderness" is included in "PURSUE. PURSUE" is an autobiography of Non's 20s, and this song, written by Higuchi Ai, who shook the world with "Akuma no Ko", is the most important song in experiencing "Non's 10 years", the theme of the album.
NON raised her hand to direct this autobiographical song in order to make it not only "NON's song" but also "everyone's song. The music video, which took about three months to produce, was shot entirely on location with no CG effects, and the artist struggled with the wind and fog in the wilderness to create a fantastical image that is almost out of this world.
The music video, combined with the wonderful song, evoked a wide range of emotions in the viewer.
The "Standing in the Wilderness Cheering Squad," which was recruited in advance through NON KNOCK, NON's official FC, will be credited in the YouTube summary section of the music video.
The music video will premiere tomorrow, June 28 (Wed.) at 21:00 on NON OFFICIAL YouTube!
From the countdown time of the premiere to the full-length release, Nonn will also join us for a chat to witness the release.
You may hear secret stories about the shooting of the music video from the director, artist NON, and actor NON...?
Please join us at the NON OFFICIAL YouTube channel at 21:00 on 6/28(Wed.), the release date of PURSUE!
In addition, NON's 2nd Full Album "PURSUE" will be available for download and distribution on Apple Music, Spotify and other streaming services from 24:00 tonight (the date changes to 6/28 00:00)!
The moment I received the demo of "Standing in the Wilderness" from Higuchi Ai and listened to it, I was greatly moved and disturbed.
I trained my singing voice to sing this song and gave it everything I could muster to complete the recording.
What kind of image should be played on this great masterpiece that shows us hope in the midst of passion? My mind was overflowing with things I wanted to do.
I decided to shoot the music video on location in the desert, working together with the wonderful technology and staff to create a music video.
On location, we were blessed with spectacular natural tricks and were able to capture images that I had never seen before.
I hope that the people who have seen the music video will understand my feelings.
I hope it reaches everyone who has been watching over me.
And I hope it will be a light for your tomorrow.
