An unexpected surprise will be included in the 8th album from AKB48 “Thumbnail” (release date: January 25)! Rino Sashihara (HKT48) will be collaborating with Morning Musume.’17 to form the unit Sashining Musume for the song “Get you!”

A longtime fan of Morning Musume since her elementary school days, this is a dream come true for Sashihara while bringing together 2 of the biggest fandoms in the Japanese idol world. “Get you!” will have all 13 members of Morning Musume.’17 performing alongside Sashihara for what might be one of the most anticipated collaborations of 2017, if not the history of both groups.

Leader Mizuki Fukumura commented that while “Get you!” is a little bit different than “the idol song” and didn’t have parts where fans would call out or guide vocals on the demo, once they recorded the vocals she got really excited. She added that she was really happy to have been able to sing together with Sashihara and praised her cute singing voice. Sashihara’s favorite member of Morning Musume.’17, Masaki Sato mentioned how she was happy to be one of the double centers for the song and had grown a little closer to Sashihara, likening the relationship to one of a sisterly rivalry.

In addition to the single songs “Kuchibiru ni Be My Baby”, “365nichi no Kamihikouki”, “Kimi wa Melody”, “Tsubasa wa Iranai”, “LOVE TRIP”, “Shiawase wo Wakenasai”, “Hikari to Kage no Hibi”, and “High Tension”, there are new songs split between Type-A and Type-B. “Get you!” as well as “Ayamachi”, a collaboration song with Sayaka Yamamoto and veteran singer Jun’ichi Inagaki. The DVD for Type-A includes footage from AKB48’s national handshake event (contents subject to change).
