Rock band RADWIMPS will release a new album on November 23rd.

FOREVER DAZE comes three years after their previous studio album, 2018's ANTI ANTI GENERATION. It was written and recorded throughout the coronavirus pandemic, and it is said to speak to the musical challenges the members faced and their hopes moving forward. It is said to see the band incorporate experimental elements and welcome a diverse group of collaborators, including actor/singer Masaki Suda, rapper Awich and R&B singer iri.

The album will contain 14 songs, including the advance singles Blame Summer, Iron Feather, TWILIGHT (from "WE ARE ONE", a special project commemorating vol. 100 of the manga and the 1000th episode of the anime "ONE PIECE"), Utakata-Uta (the theme song from the film "It’s a Flickering Life") and SUMMER DAZE 2021.

The newly recorded full orchestra version of Nekojarashi, now titled Inujarashi, and the RADWIMPS version of Grand Escape from the film "Weathering with You" are also included on the album.

RADWIMPS have also revealed the album cover art, which was created in collaboration with contemporary artist Yuma Kishi and directed by art director Ryosuke Miyashita. The image was generated by AI, combining portraits of a 15-year-old boy and a girl with diversified backgrounds. Adding the sense of a "daze" onto the image, the abstract figure on the cover represents the continuous evolution of the band even after 15 years on the major music scene in Japan.

More details on the album are available on this special site.

In addition, RADWIMPS have released a live performance of Grand Escape, from their 15th Anniversary Special Concert held at Yokohama Arena in Nov. 2020, on their official YouTube channel. Complete video of the show will be available on the bonus Blu-ray/DVD of the 15th Anniversary Box (Limited Edition) of the new album.
