It's been revealed that singer/songwriter Nagabuchi Tsuyoshi's new song, "Mirai", has been chosen as the theme song for Nakama Yukie's upcoming drama, 'Shima no Sensei' (starts May 25 on NHK Sogou). Nagabuchi last provided "Yubikiri Genman" for 'Gekai?Natsume Sanshiro' about 15 years ago in 1998.

'Shima no Sensei' takes place at a small school on an isolated island in Kagoshima, and portrays the lives of a teacher and her students. NHK producer Yashiki Yotaro explained his reason for asking Nagabuchi to provide the theme song, "During the 'Kohaku Uta Gassen' the year before last, I was touched when I learned about his strong passion for children's education and that he was assertively acting towards it. Also, speaking of Nagabuchi-san, he is from Kagoshima where the drama is set. I definitely wanted him to make a warm theme song while recalling his youth."

Nakama, who will be playing her first teacher role since 'Gokusen', commented, "Right now, we are filming in the nature on an isolated island called Amamioshima. The lyrics and melody which portrays 'future' is perfect for this heartwarming drama that uses a calm and magnificent location."

Nagabusa will release "Mirai" as his new single on May 22.
