FUNKY MONKEY BABYS' new song, "Sayonara Janai", will be used as the theme song for the upcoming movie, 'Bokutachi no Koukan Nikki' (March 23rd release).

'Bokutachi no Koukan Nikki' is based on Suzuki Osamu's novel, 'Geinin Koukan Nikki ~Yellow Hearts no Monogatari~'. The film portrays the friendship and bond between an unsuccessful comedian duo. It will be directed by comedian Uchimura Teruyoshi of Utchan Nanchan, andIto Atsushi and Koide Keisuke will play the lead roles.

FUNKY MONKEY BABYS wrote the theme song after Uchimura's fervent request. On choosing the group, he explained, "I have confidence that the audience will leave the theater with good feelings after listening to their song during the end."

Meanwhile, FUNKY MONKEY BABYS' Kato commented, "At first, when we received this news from director Uchimura and Suzuki Osamu-san, we felt so much pressure that we felt like running away. I always liked the original work, so I was able to feel that the movie was wonderful itself. We hope that our new song 'Sayonara Janai' will become a tailwind for this film."

FUNKY MONKEY BABYS will release "Sayonara Janai" as their 20th single on November 21. The limited edition DVD will include the music video for the title track.
