New details have been released regarding Gen Hoshino's 10th single.
The singer's new single will be titled "Family Song". The song will be used as the theme song to the upcoming NTV drama "Kahogo no Kahoko" which premieres on July 12.
The new drama stars Mitsuki Takahata as 21-year-old university student Kahoko Nemoto. The girl's mother has always done everything for her, from picking out her clothes, to do doing all the house chores, and even driving so she wouldn't have to. Nemoto meets a young man who had the opposite experience growing up.
Hoshino said he began writing his new song after reading the drama's script.
"I wanted to make soulful music with a family theme. I thought to myself 'What would my family do?' while writing the song. The song was recorded by the band members who would work until morning, and I'm confident [in the song]," Hoshino said.
"Family Song" will be released on August 16.
