YOSHIKI And HYDE Premiere The Full Version Of Attack On Titan Theme!

YOSHIKI and HYDE have at long last revealed the full version of the new Attack on Titan theme song, Red Swan on Music Station Ultra Fes 2018 that was broadcasted on September 17th on TV Asahi in Japan.

YOSHIKI and HYDE stood on the roof of the TV Asahi building as YOSHIKI played his signature piano while HYDE sang a mixture of English and Japanese lyrics with the Tokyo Tower shining brightly in the background.

Prior to this performance YOSHIKI and HYDE premiered the completed version of Red Swan on YOSHIKI CHANNEL on September 15th, where they also revealed details for the CD covers and the released date of October 3rd. During the premiere show YOSHIKI revealed the secret that Red Swan was created partially based on a section from X JAPAN’s hit song Rusty Nail. Speaking about the collaboration, YOSHIKI said, “Creating a song that will break down walls, in more ways than one. That was my mission, in a manner of speaking. I never thought I’d actually accept it though!” And HYDE commented while laughing with, “Nobody can turn down a request from YOSHIKI, but seriously I was truly delighted to join this collaboration.” He also mentioned that he has been listening to the final version of Red Swan quite often.

YOSHIKI also gave some insight into the stories behind the two covers for Red Swan. First, as the YOSHIKI feat. HYDE cover version was unveiled, YOSHIKI explained that it was designed with elements of the cover for Rusty Nail, with the blue blood trickling down. He also mentioned that a brand new illustration was created especially for the Attack on Titan version of the release.

At the end of the broadcast, YOSHIKI gave a heartfelt message to HYDE. Reflecting on the collaboration borne from a friendship going back many years, he said: “Thank you so much for this collaboration. Ten, twenty years ago I could never have imagined this kind of collaboration between members of different bands was possible. I’m really happy that we were able inspire each other to move forward. It has also served as motivation as X JAPAN moves forward.”

YOSHIKI and HYDE are scheduled to team up again for a performance on October 28th at HYDE’s Halloween Party 2018. This will be the third time YOSHIKI has performed at the Halloween Party. When YOSHIKI asked HYDE, “What’s going to be the centerpiece of this year’s party?” HYDE replied, “Your performance, of course!” HYDE then asked what kind of Halloween costume he had planned for this year, YOSHIKI immediately responded “Attack on Yoshiki!” Making the audience laugh.

The pair also shared the news that HYDE is set to appear for a guest performance during November’s YOSHIKI CLASSICAL 2018 ~Two Violet Nights~ YOSHIKI with Philharmonic Orchestra event in Tokyo, YOSHIKI’s first classical concerts since his two back-to-back sold-out performances at Carnegie Hall in January 2017.
