Japan’s Indie-Pop Outfit RADWIMPS Share English Version of ‘PAPARAZZI

Acclaimed Japanese alternative-rock band RADWIMPS (Yusuke Takeda / bass, Yojiro Noda / vocals and guitar, Akira Kuwahara / guitar) are pleased to announce the English version of ‘Paparazzi’ taken from their new album, ANTI ANTI GENERATION” released through Universal Music.

Singer Yojiro says: “About 3 to 4 years ago, there was so much I wanted to say around what’s on the lyrics of this song. Lyrics from the artist point-of-view is exactly what I experienced and felt myself. However, the song and the story wouldn’t be complete with just me complaining about the situation. That’s when a question crossed my mind. “Do they have kids? How do they explain their job to their kids?” That’s how this song all started. Depending on how you tell your kids, they would probably understand and be proud of their dad’s job. I didn’t want this song and story to be just one-sided but also wanted to say what I wanted to say.”

For the first time in band’s history, 3 tracks feature special guest collaborators; Taka (singer of ONE OK ROCK), Aimyon (up-and-coming female singer songwriter), Miyachi (NY based rapper) and Tabu Zombie (from SOIL&“PIMP”SESSIONS). The album also includes their recent hit singles “Saihate Aini,” “Mountain Top,” and “Catharsist” as well as “Banzai Sensho” and “Seikai,” written and performed for NHK “18FES” in Oct. 2018

Limited edition of “ANTI ANTI GENERATION” physical package comes with a bonus DVD featuring band’s interview and documentary capturing them since the release of “Your Name.” OST and “Human Bloom” album. This is a must see for the fans. The band also revealed new publicity photo and an iconic album cover with design of smashed empty can. The artwork was directed by Tetsuya Nagato, who also directed the artwork for their last album “Human Bloom.”
