A new interview with Mr.Children has been published at Yahoo JAPAN! where the members talk about their new album HOME
Mr.Children will greet their 15th Anniversary debut on May 10, 2007. The album "B-SIDE" is to be released on their debut day May 10th. Vocalist Sakurai will be commenting on all 20 pieces in this NEW ALBUM, which contains songs that were not collected on any album until now. The album will place songs in chronological order that have been collected in various singles as coupling songs that represents their brilliant history of 15 years.
This work called "B-SIDE" was suggested by Sakurai during the recording of the newest original album HOME around last summer. Another Story, Motto, Yawarakai kaze, and Anmari oboetenai ya which are on HOME, were songs that Sakurai had written as potential coupling songs for the Shirushi single. That natural feeling and the desire that arose in nonchalant daily life were questioned with “What is a coupling?” from the group. Doubt was born. Some of these old songs would be listened to again, and we would find ourselves saying “it’s also a favorite song!” And thus from the latest album HOME, the B-SIDE was created.
After a certain time, their title tracks started to dictate an overall "theme" on how there should be a "Mr.Children and their meaning in music” feeling that someone should have on themselves, and there has always been an expectation of "a change from previous work" and "the role they play as Mr.Children" that has been expected by many music fans. Their works have been raised to their own stage while receiving high literary evaluation and an artistry evaluation. However, Mr.Children keeps challenging themselves by always continuing to fight on the stage which pushes up on their back, and to accomplish their roles as a musician up to the present, which they feel to be compensation for the commercial success they have received. A lot of the feelings and desires which have shaped them come from these coupling songs.
- An historic "beat" lasting for Mr.Children’s 15 years will be felt by listening to this work
- In addition, enclosed is self liner notes and a lyric book written by Kazutoshi Sakurai and band members, who wrote it while loving each song one after the other
- Please stay tuned to all the new information on Mr.Children that will be coming out in the year 2007!
New stadium tour to be held From August 4th till September 30th 2007. Visit official site for dates!
