But for the actual Johnny's related thing this post is about, TOKIO has announced that they will be releasing a new single on October 30th. It will be a double A-side with the A-sides being Hontotoko and Future.The first being the theme song for the drama Nagase Tomoya will be starring in, Kuro Coach, and the later being a song with a CM tie-in. All songs on the single are being said to be written by members of the group. In fact Nagase penned both A-sides for the single.
There are three editions of the single with the limited editions both coming with a DVD and just having the two A-sides on the CD. The difference between the two is which PV you get as both songs will have one.
The regular edition has the title tracks on the CD as well as two B-sides and all four tracks will have karaoke versions.
I am really happy that TOKIO is releasing something else this year. They are one of the Johnny's groups that have been sporadic with their releases so it is always hard to figure out when they will release something. In fact in 2012 and 2011 they only released one single, though 2012 they at least had an album release as well. But I think with this being the third single for the year for them it is to make sure they will get an album out next year as that will be their 20th debut anniversary year. Of course this makes me hope that it is an original studio album that they are planning and not a simple best of.
Even if they do not release a lot TOKIO usually meets or exceeds my expectations for their releases so I am looking forward to this single.
