Kobukuro are preparing for the release of their new album "TIMELESS WORLD" on June 15. At this time, they've revealed the recording footage of their collaboration song with Hotei Tomoyasu, "NO PAIN, NO GAIN feat. Hotei Tomoyasu".
This song was written by Kobuchi Kentaro and Kuroda Shunsuke, composed by Hotei, and arranged by the three of them. Kobukuro, who wanted to "make a new song that could liven up the crowd," requested for Hotei to compose the song. This is the first time that the duo has asked a third person to compose their original song.
Not only did he compose the song, Hotei also participated for the guitar and chorus. Hotei composed the song in London, where he currently resides, and sent it to Kobukuro in Tokyo. "Music has a special charm that surpasses age, experience, and boundaries to make wonderful dreams like this come true," said Kobuchi.
