Japanese dance, vocal, and rap group LIL LEAGUE has introduced their latest single, 'FeiLong,' designated as the official theme for the upcoming SoftBank Winter Cup 2023 national high school basketball tournament.
The title, inspired by the mythical flying dragon from Chinese folklore, reflects the contemplative yet up-tempo nature of the piece. Crafted to offer encouragement to young basketball athletes, the lyrics draw parallels between their determination and the graceful ascent of a dragon reaching new heights in the sky. Tokyo-based trackmaker KENTZ, known for producing successful hits, has incorporated a motivational beat and sounds reminiscent of the sounds from 2000, rooted in hip-hop and breakbeat elements.
Originally shared during LIL LEAGUE's solo concert-hall tour across Japan, titled LIL LEAGUE LIVE TOUR 2023 "LIL GATEWAY," the positive reception from fans during the live performance has prompted the official release of the single.
With their debut album 'TRICKSTER' set for release in February 2024, 'FeiLong' marks a reflective moment for LIL LEAGUE as they conclude their debut year.
The single encapsulates the group's evolving sound and sets the stage for what's to come in their musical journey.
