For Ponpara Pecorna Papiyotta, Yoko Kanno handled the composition, with KenKen, Hideki Aoyama, and Tsuneo Imahori performing, creating a truly star-studded lineup of leading artists.

The single goes global pre-release online on October 5th, and will be included only in Type A of their latest single “Super Hero”.
