It’s been revealed that Saito Kazuyoshi’s new song, “Gekkou“, has been chosen as the theme song for Odagiri Joe’s upcoming drama, “Kazoku no Uta“!
“Kazoku no Uta” is Fuji TV’s newest drama that will air in the ‘dramatic Sunday’ time slot (every Sundays at 9:00 pm) starting April 15th. It’s a human drama that tells a story of a former rock star named Hayakawa (Odagiri), who has been completely forgotten from society since the break up of his band. One sudden day, he finds out that he has three daughters and has no choice but to live with them.
Other cast members include Yusuke Santamaria, Kanjiya Shihori, Nakajima Kento (Sexy Zone), Tortoise Matsumoto, and Otsuka Nene.
Saito received the offer to provide the theme song back in December, and created a brand new song that would suit the story line. Regarding the song, he commented, “I made it while overlapping the image of the rock musician protagonist and my image of rock’n'roll.”
“Gekkou” will be released as Saito’s new single on May 2nd. It will also include the theme song for the movie, “Potechi“, called “Konya, Ringo no Ki no Shita de” as its coupling track.
