How the Museum of the Future sounds like?

Monday, March 11, 2013

To follow up in full detail on the previous blog I made, Japanese technopop trio Perfume has released their twenty-second single called Mirai no Museum (Museum of the Future), last 27th of February of this year. It also marked their third single under their new label, Universal Music Japan. The A-side which name is also the title of the single has been chosen as the theme song of the anime and manga series Doraemon in its latest movie called Doraemon: Nobita no Himitsu Dōgu Museum (ドラえもん のび太のひみつ道具博物館(ミュージアム)or translated as Doraemon Movie: Nobita's Secret Gadget Museum.

The group has mentioned in one of their TV guestings that Mirai no Museum was composed in a way that Nakata Yasutaka has poured his heart and love for Doraemon, since he is a big fan of the whole franchise. True enough, the melody is cute, depicts a positive aura and as A-chan say, "straightforward  positive song" as a whole. For me, I think that Nakata thinks the tune in a way that kids will love and will remember the tune easily, since it is an anime song, not to mention, it is a Doraemon song.

There was an interview published at Oricon Style a few weeks ago with regard to the group's thoughts on the new single they released. Translations of that said interview can be found here.

Moreover, the B-side song of the single is called Daijobanai (だいじょばない) (I'm not Okay)I must say that I was fond of the tempo and was simply amazed on how short and repetitive the lyrics are. It was cute and addictive. The instrumental was just... pure gold. :)

Last 6th of March, the digital download of the single has been released on iTunes. I've bought it the moment I saw it! :) Unfortunately, the instrumental tracks for both songs are not included.

Nevertheless, if you haven't purchase it yet, please do support Perfume by buying their CD, or limited DVD edition on your favorite local record barsonline stores and digitally like I did. :)
