【Vkei-News】Gender-free diva Kaya, and lyricist Neko Oikawa collaborate to release “renaître,” a collection of renowned songs!
Diva Kaya, who just released his well-received single “VILLAINS” this summer, will release a mini-album in the fall!
The album is fully produced by Neko Oikawa, a hit lyricist who wrote the theme songs for “Neon Genesis Evangelion” such as “Zankoku na Tenshi no Thesis” and “Tamashii no Lufran” as well as Wink’s “Samishii Netaigyo” and “Ai ga tomaranai”.A collection of pop songs that bring the soul of chanson to the present day, including the chanson masterpiece “Lily Marlene”, “Love (Habanera)” from Bizet’s Carmen, the Latin “Lambada”, a nostalgic Japanese hit, and Rod Stewart’s sad rock ballad “It’s Not the Spotlight”, all newly written by Oikawa in Japanese with love, with gender-free wistful vocals of Kaya.
The word “renaître” means “rebirth” in French. The songs are shining masterpieces in the history of music, songs that everyone has heard at least once, and now we have written new Japanese lyrics for them. The songs have been reborn as songs that stay close to the hearts of people living in the world now. (Neko Oikawa)
