[SINGLE] BRAVE

Post by iheartaiba » Sat Aug 31, 2019 6:37 pm

Old news now, but I forgot to post this.


Arashi will release new single on Sep 11th. The title song BRAVE is NTV's rugby 2019 image song and we first heard it back in Nov '18. There will be three versions as usual.

CD+DVD (limited edition) | CD+Blu-ray (limited edition)
1. BRAVE
DVD: BRAVE PV + making of

CD (regular edition)
1. BRAVE
2. BRAVE (karaoke)

Let me be the first to say this: why??

I was about it ask why what, and then I saw the track list. Why indeed.

That and why release a song that already came out almost a year ago.

Well... I guess there's no reason to order the limited edition this time. It would have been nice if they'd added some of the songs that have never been released on CD if they weren't going to add new ones.

I would have prepared an earlier release, but at least it's available on CD soon, so that's something at least. I do hope there'll be more singles next year though. If not, it may only be the 5x20 concert DVD.

ETA. Actually I may order the LE instead of the RE because I prefer the PV over the Karaoke version, but I don't see a reason for buying both this time.

I still haven't had the chance to listen to it. So...¯\_(ツ)_/¯

This a weird release indeed, just one song? O_o I also haven't listened to it, but it can't be THAT good that no other songs can fit in the single. They could have waited and added it to another single, like they did with the winter olympics' songs.

I've been feeling deprived of their music lately. I feel like it's been so long since they've had a release and there hasn't been any new music. I guess we should start to get used to it eventually... :/ :/

I think this is quite true, and it makes me sad :(

When I first heard this song I liked it well enough. I mean, the chorus is your average Arashi stuff, and I tend to like it more when they go out of their comfort zone, but it's okay. This single though, I just wonder... why? Only one song, released - I assume - long after it was recorded, and the PV is not even going to be on the video clips compilation. It seems like it exists in its own little void.

As for the video content: at first I thought 54 minutes sounds like a long making, which could be good. Then I saw that there are 6 versions of the PV - even better, they've never done it before. And then I watched the group PV, and about half of Sho's... somehow, I don't think surprises await with the rest of them. I am glad the making has more of them talking and joking with each other than simply filming the takes (for some reason I was afraid that was all it's going to be).

I have this hunch that only having one song for this single was done on purpose. I know they don't let their fans down, so this could be a lead into something bigger and better that we didn't see coming. I can see Jun coming up with ways to make us satisfied with the one single because something else is coming. That's my hope anyways.

I'd like to think so, but I'm assuming all of their efforts went into their huge concert tour, which I guess is the best way of satisfying most of their fans...
Perhaps there will be a single or two more, but if there isn't, the fact that they didn't manage to squeeze this one in on 5x20 Best Clips will be even weirder (unless there are some elaborate intros made for each PV).

^That makes sense, too. I can see the one song in the single being for management. Although, Arashi probably wouldn't want us to think of it that way.

I was thinking it's for the rugby players and/or other people involved in RWC, to hand them a physical copy of the theme song as a souvenir lol.
