Atsuko Maeda’s Reveals MV & Jacket Covers for New Single “Seventh Chord”
Atsuko Maeda will be releasing her new single “Seventh Chord” on March 5. The short MV and Jacket Covers of the single has been revealed today.
The MV was directed by Kiyoshi Kurosawa, and all the scenes were filmed in Vladivostok, Russia.
The director, Kurosawa, commented on Maeda that “she is a rare kind of Japanese actress because she is independent of her surroundings and can stand majestically even when alone.” When asked specifically about his latest film, “I believed that her uncommon character would shine through even brighter in an overseas setting, and that is exactly what she achieved in my latest film. The film supported her character, and her performance elevated the film to excellence. The film and Atsuko were interdependent; and I believe she will become more and more important to the Japanese movie scene as a whole,” he continued.
The newly revealed artwork for the CD is also designed in “Russian Avant-garde” style from the 1910’s, similar to the style seen in the video. The words “Seventh Chord” written in Russian on the red-and-blue cover leave a strong impression. Additionally, a two-tone red and black special-edition DVD containing the whole movie will be included with the CD. If you’re a fan and couldn’t make the January release of the movie, this is you’re chance to own it!
