Hip hop group Ketsumeishi's new song, "Tsuki to Taiyou" (May 22nd release), has been chosen as the ending theme for Ito Hideaki and Sakaguchi Kenji's upcoming drama, 'Doubles ~Futari no Keiji~'. This will be Ketsumeishi's first time in 2 years to provide a theme song for a drama.

Ito and Sakaguchi last co-starred together about 10 years ago. Their upcoming drama takes place at the central police station in Shinjuku, and they play detective partners who deal with heinous crimes. "Tsuki to Taiyou" was written especially for the drama.

Ketsumeishi member Ookura explained, "The two lead roles are of the same generation as us. Since the two characters have different personalities and because this is a detective drama, we wrote the song with the image of the one who captures and the one who gets captured, the positive and the negative, the light and shadow."

Meanwhile, Ito commented, "It's a very cool song. I want everyone to hear it as soon as possible," and Sakaguchi also praised, "It's a melody that resembles Ketsumeishi's previous hit songs. The lyrics are also wonderful!"

'Doubles ~Futari no Keiji' will air on TV Asahi every Thursday at 9:00 pm starting April 18th.
