It was announced recently that pop singer Tomohisa Yamashita will be performing the ending theme for the Hulu Original series "THE HEAD".

Yamashita is also part of the main cast for the series, which is a six-part "survival thriller" that features international talent. "THE HEAD" is set in a scientific research base in a remote region of Antarctica. In the story, ten members of the base's wintering team lose contact with the summer staff during the six-month "long night" (a period of no sunlight). When a rescue party arrives at the base and discovers the bodies of seven researchers brutally murdered, the characters must unravel the mystery of what happened during those six months. A trailer for "THE HEAD" is available here.

The series will be broadcast in 30 different countries and regions across the globe. It will premiere on Hulu on June 12th, as well as on HBO Asia, Nordic Entertainment, Orange TV and other platforms in those respective markets, although the premiere date may vary depending on the country or service.

The ending theme will be titled Nights Cold, and it features lyrics Yamashita wrote based on the worldview of the series. Nights Cold will be released digitally worldwide on July 15th. It will be Yamashita's first-ever global digital release, and it will make him one of the very few Johnny's artists to have music available worldwide on digital stores and streaming platforms.

There will also be three physical versions of the single. The limited editions will each feature the title track, its instrumental version, and a B-side called Rinaria. Limited Edition A will add a bonus DVD with a documentary shot in Iceland, while Limited Edition B's DVD will feature the music video for Nights Cold instead. The regular edition will be CD-only, but it will feature a song called Basics as its third track instead of the instrumental.

This will also be Yamashita's first-ever worldwide tie-in and his first international acting role in English. In a comment, he stated that when he heard about this tie-in he was so humbled and grateful for the opportunity that it brought tears to his eyes. He went on to say that he hopes as many people as possible will listen to the song and enjoy it along with the drama itself.

Fans can check out Yamashita's English in a pair of short Q&A videos he did for Hulu Japan below:
