The theme song for NHK morning drama 'Natsuzora' will be Spitz's new song "Yasashii Ano Ko."
'Natsuzora' is NHK's 100th morning drama series, and it tells a story of Okuhara Natsu (played by Hirose Suzu), a young girl raised in Tokachi, Hokkaido who enters the animation industry after graduating from high school. Besides Hirose, the drama will star Matsushima Nanako, Fujiki Naohito, Okada Masaki, Yoshikawa Ryo, Takahata Atsuko, and Kusakari Masao.
"Yasashii Ano Ko" was written just for the drama. Spitz member Kusano Masamune (Vo, G), who is a fan of morning dramas, commented, "The lyrics are very wintry." On the reason for this, he explained, "After receiving the offer, I visited Tokachi a few times. Even though it was summer, I felt the arrival of the long winter. I interpreted 'Natsuzora' as the summer sky that everyone waited for after a brutal winter."
'Natsuzora' will premiere on April 1.
