Actor Takahashi Issei will make his singing debut with theme song "Kimi ni Aitai -Dance with you-" for his starring drama 'Tokyo Dokushin Danshi.'
'Tokyo Dokushin Danshi' is a love comedy about three men in their forties who enjoy their bachelor lives. Besides Takahashi, the drama will star Saito Takumi and Takito Kenichi.
The theme song "Kimi ni Aitai -Dance with you-" is written, composed, and produced by Miyamoto Hiroji (Elephant Kashimashi). Takahashi, who has always been a fan of Elephant Kashimashi, first met Miyamoto through a TV program back in 2017. Then, Takahashi collaborated with Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra to cover "Bokutachi no Ashita," which was included in Elephant Kashimashi's tribute album "Elephant Kashimashi Cover Album 3 ~A Tribute to The Elephant Kashimashi~" released last March.
As such, Takahashi decided that he should request his first original song from none other than Miyamoto himself. Miyamoto, who had never provided a song to anyone else before, gladly accepted the request and delved into songwriting. For the recording, Yashiki Gota (Dr), Negishi Takamune (B), and Nagoshi Yukio (G) participated.
TV Asahi will air 'Tokyo Dokushin Danshi' from April 13.
