Singer-songwriter HIRAIDAI has released his song "Starbucks, Me and You (English Ver.)" on December 8 as his latest official holiday collaboration with Starbucks.
The original Japanese-language version of "Starbucks, Me and You" was released last year as the first musical holiday collaboration with Starbucks. It features lyrics based on festive stories collected from over 3,800 Starbucks customers and baristas. This song was played in Starbucks stores across Japan last year and even this year.
This heartwarming song perfectly captures the comforting glow of Starbucks during the holiday season, including references to the iconic gingerbread lattes and red cups that we all know and love, while channeling the feelings of happiness, connection with loved ones, and warm emotion that we associate with the festive season.
Cowritten by globally renowned producer Corey K., along with HIRAIDAI’s touring cohorts David King and J’Nique Nicole, the English version brings a whole new charm to this timeless song.
"Starbucks, Me and You (English Ver.)" can now be heard at Starbucks stores in 13 countries and regions around the Asia-Pacific (may exclude some stores).
