NEWS - Happy Birthday (10th single)

Limited Edition
This single's title track was a tie-in for a range of bath products that were under the name Happy Bath Day (a pun because Japan loves puns) from the company KOSE, hence the title of this single Happy Birthday.

It was the final single for the year and the last one before the group's third studio album.

2008 really felt like the year for NEWS with a decent amount of releases for the group and a concert tour. Unfortunately the next year would be much the opposite as Kanjani8 began to really take off in popularity and thus Nishikido Ryo spending much more time with that group.

Versions: Limited, Regular

Limited track listing:
1. Happy Birthday
2. Ganganganbatte
4. Happy Birthday (original karaoke)

Regular track listing:
1. Happy Birthday
2. Ganganganbatte
