New BACK-ON single “wimp ft. Lil’ Fang (from FAKY)” – Gundam Build Fighters second opening theme (OP) due out on March 12th 2014
Happy New Year for 2014! :) We are pleased to be bringing you the latest news from our favourite band for the 8th consecutive year!
BACK-ON recently announced that a new OP for the anime Gundam Build Fighters would be out in mid January 2014.
It’s been a while since the band has collaborated with another artist and the new song, wimp ft. Lil’ Fang (from FAKY) features Tokyo-born Lil’ Fang, a vocalist from the all-female bilingual J-pop group FAKY that has been described by Jacques@Arcadey as “The J-pop Group That Looks Like a K-pop Group That Sounds Like a Euro-pop Group“.
BACK-ON then released a 30-second preview clip of the song, which you can watch and listen to here:
(Update: March 8th 2014) You can now watch the full music video below!
It has received nearly 10,000 hits in just 3 days and features BACK-ON performing live as the background (possibly at Anime USA 2013?) and offers us a tantalising ‘glimpse’ of TEEDA rapping and Lil’ Fang (and KENJI03) singing the main chorus of the track. Rich vocals indeed!
The track is expected to be released as a ringtone next week (January 13th) and the single is due to follow on March 12th 2014. As with the previous ニブンノイチ/INFINITY anime tie-in release, according to BACK-ON.com, there will be 3 editions available: CD only, CD+DVD, CD+gunpla.
The tracklisting is as follows (updated March 8th 2014):
- wimp ft. Lil Fang (from FAKY)
- Around the world ***
- wimp ft. Lil Fang (from FAKY)～instrumental～
The CD+DVD edition will include the music video of the title track and two live recordings of BACK-ON performing ニブンノイ (Nibun no Ichi) and wimp at FamilyMart Presents MUSIC FOR ALL, ALL FOR ONE 2013. It will also feature a new track called “Around the world”***.
maybe a bonus (currently unknown) another track called Traumatic although wimp may not feature on this version (unless there is a typo on BACK-ON.com. The CD+gunpla limited edition will include a HG Sengoku Astray Gundam (Plavsky Particle Clear Ver) gunpla, but not – apparently – Around the world *** unless this is a typo.
We will continue to update our Discography section with more information, but in the meantime, do take a minute to listen to the clip and let us know what you think! :)
