On January 5th, the Golden Globes Awards announced through their official website that YOSHIKI would be composing their event theme this year.

Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) president Dr. Aida Takla-O’Reilly and Dick Clark Productions executive Barry Adelman both praised YOSHIKI for his fine musicianship and exceptional talent.

"YOSHIKI is a world-renowned musician and composer of enormous talent and versatility, who in addition to being a rock superstar has composed for film and television,” said Dr. Takla-O’Reilly. “As an international organization dedicated to creative achievements, the HFPA is delighted to have a global musical artist of YOSHIKI’s stature create the theme for the show.”

Adelman added, "We look forward to incorporating YOSHIKI’s music into the production of the 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards."

Commenting on his new project, YOSHIKI said, "“The Golden Globe Awards are extremely prestigious, but the show is also edgy. I’m a classical pianist and a rock drummer, so it was natural to create something beautiful that also has an edge.

YOSHIKI had also attended the Golden Globe Awards last year.

For those of you who are able to tune in, the 69th Golden Globe Awards will air on January 15th via NBC at 7:00 p.m. EST. It will be hosted by Ricky Gervais.
