Actress Ishihara Satomi appears on the jacket cover of Yuzu's new song "NATSUMONOGATARI," which was released digitally on June 2.
Ishihara has also appeared on the duo's jacket artwork 17 years ago when their 20th single "Sakuragi-cho / Shumi no Haba / Yume no Chizu" was released in 2004. At the time, the actress even appeared in the music video for "Sakuragi-cho."
Set in Yokohama, "NATSUMONOGATARI" is a "painful love song of summer" describing someone who looks ahead at the future while reflecting on their past. It tells the after story of "Sakuragi-cho," which is why Ishihara was offered to appear on the jacket cover again.
