Negicco Raises Curtain on Adorable Hand Puppet MV for “Oyasumi”!
The curtain has risen on Negicco‘s MV for “Oyasumi”, the coupling song from their upcoming 14th single “Nee Vardia” (release date: August 11)!
“Oyasumi” is a smooth jazz song with a lush keyboard arrangement reminiscent of Bob James and the MV features 3 Negicco hand puppets experiencing various adventures. Nao☆ falls in love with a shark and tries to write a pun-filled love letter. Kaede eats sushi (at the same restaurant as the shark) and goes to sing karaoke, her smartphone never leaving her side. Megu fights a bear with a shinai (bamboo sword) and takes a taxi to see Tokyo Tower at night, where she meets up with the others.
“Oyasumi” is composed by Negicco’s longtime producer connie, has lyrics written by singer/designer MEG, and arrangement by Yashuhiro Hase from Yume to Cosme. Takafumi Ikeda (aka Kirin) was in charge of composing and producing the lead track “Nee Vardia”, which is a homage to the Earth, Wind and Fire classic song “September”.
“Nee Vardia” will be released in 5 different versions: Type-A (CD/DVD), Type-B (2 CD), Type-C (CD), Regular (CD), and LP. The DVD for Type-A includes the MVs for “Nee Vardia” and “Oyasumi”. Type-B includes a bonus “ReNegi CD” with “Summer Breeze (Royal Mirrorball remix)”, “Festival de Aimashou （bo en remix）”, and “Negi-sama Bravo☆ (Tomggg remix)”. Type-C is 500 yen and only has “Nee Badiya” on it. The 7-inch vinyl version has both songs on it.
Negicco will be performing “Oyasumi” and many of their other beloved songs when they take the stage at Hibiya Yaon on August 16th so, don’t be caught sleeping on what should be one of the hottest concerts of the summer!
