Movie 21 Website Updates with Info on Theme Song

Posted by Adamant | June 6th 2018 at 11:45 PM EDT
Tags: Anime, CD, Movie, Music, YouTube
Comments: 0
The official Pokémon movie website has updated. Translations follow:

The theme song for "Pocket Monsters the Movie: Everyone's Story" has been decided!
This year, the theme song will be "Breath", which has been written specifically for the movie by Porno Graffitti.
This is a song that carries a warm melody while strings on real instruments are impressively throbbing away alongside a simple track where the number of sounds have been tightened down as much as possible.
It's a song that synchronizes with the movie's story, and that has lyrics that encourage not letting yourself get swept away by the opinions that surround you, not losing sight of your true self, but to continue onwards towards the future you believe in.
A promo video that utilizes the song has also been released: This is a special video that allows you to listen to the sound source earlier than anywhere else.

Porno Graffitti's New Single: "Breath"
Release date: Wednesday July 25th 2018
Start date for digital distro: Friday July 6th 2018

*Limited edition:
CD+DVD SECL-2307~2308 2000 yen
(DVD contains footage from the "ROCK IN JAPAN FESTIVAL 2017" concert from August 2017)

*Regular edition:
CD only SECL-2309 1300 yen

*Anime edition: CD+DVD SECL-2310~2311 1600 yen
(DVD contains the "Breath (movie ver.) music video, which uses footage from "Pocket Monsters the Movie: Everyone's Story")

Comments from Porno Graffitti:

Comment from Akihito Okano
I am extremely honored that I get to handle the theme song.
I am positive that once they've watched this movie, everyone will brighten up and become filled with the strength to head towards tomorrow.
We made this song hoping that it could encourage those people and give them a push forward, even if it only acts as a slight breeze.
I think of it as a pop song that I believe adds flowers to the movie in our own special way.

Comment from Haruichi Shindo
I got the opportunity to consult the director before starting to work on this song.
He told me that this year's movie is a story where the characters that appear all deal with their own respective little problems and manage to overcome them.
It would be great if humans could also change their form and appearance drastically the way Pokémon do when they "evolve", but since they can't, we have no choice but to encourage the people we currently are. This is what I was wondering if I'd be able to express through song.

Porno Graffitti's profile:

Okano and Shindo are from Innoshima Island, Hiroshima. They formed a band while in high school. Then, in 1999, they accomplished a powerful major debut with their first single, "Apollo".
They were immediately widely recognized as a new type of artists, and when they released their 3rd single, "Music Hour", the next year, they became the talk of the town that summer. Their 4th single, "Saudade", was a huge hit, as were singles like "Saboten", "Agehacho", "Melissa", "Ai ga yobu hou e", etc. In 2004, 5 years after their debut, they released their two first best-of albums, "PORNO GRAFFITTI BEST RED'S" and "PORNO GRAFFITTI BEST BLUE'S", at the same time, which not only got them their first no 1 position on the Oricon album charts, they were such record-breaking hits they monopolized both the first AND second position on the chart for two weeks in a row.
In 2013, 15 years after their major debut, they released the best-of album "PORNOGRAFFITTI 15th Anniversary “ALL TIME SINGLES”", which included all their singles, grabbing the no 1 spot on the Oricon Weekly Chart.
In 2015, they released "RHINOCEROS", their 10th original album and their first one in 3 and a half years, and it too grabbed the no 1 spot on both the daily and weekly Oricon charts.
Last year, in March 2017, they held their first solo concert in Taiwan. They were so popular the initially announced first-day concert tickets sold out immediately, so they held a second concert the next day. They were riding on that momentum last summer, so in addition to making energetic appearances at huge music festivals like "ROCK IN JAPAN FESTIVAL 2017", "MONSTER baSH 2017", "SPACE SHOWER SWEET LOVE SHOWER 2017" and the like they also went on a long tour all across Japan, holding 39 concerts in 32 locations, and everything sold out the first day tickets went on sale.
The momentum hasn't stopped yet either, as their latest single "Chameleon Lens", which was released Wednesday March 21st 2018, has become the talk of the town alongside "Holiday Love" on the TV Asahi Network, which it serves as the theme song for.
Porno Graffitti still have fans from multiple generations, and now that they're approaching the 20th anniversary of their debut, they've decided hold outdoors concerts on September 8th and 9th 2018 in their birthplace Hiroshima to kick off the year of their 20th anniversary.
