SEKAI NO OWARI is currently working on expanding outside of Japan into international markets.
Several people working with SEKAI NO OWARI discussed the group's plans to debut outside of Japan.
"In addition to their domestic activities, we are actively pursuing overseas markets, working with famous producers and artists such as Holland's Nicky Romero...and OWLCITY, one of America's top artists. The songs we're working on are all in English," Ryota Shishido, the group's manager, told JpopAsia.
The group has begun recording new music for its expansion into new markets. Singles and music videos are expected to be released during the second half of 2016. Following the release of its singles, SEKAI NO OWARI plans on releasing its first English-language album in 2017.
SEKAI NO OWARI's decision to release an English-language album comes after the group released a series of English-language singles in Japan. Songs like "Anti-Hero" and "SOS" were all released in 2015 with English lyrics, and both were #1 hits. "Mr. Heartache" was digitally released at the end of 2015, and its music video can be viewed below:
Further details about SEKAI NO OWARI's international activities will be released at a later date exclusively through JpopAsia.
