More than a year of silence by Japan’s D’espairsRay has made the anticipation for their new release deafening. This is truly an exciting day not only for us at HearJapan but for D’espairsRay fans all over the world. We are proud to announce that the new D’espairsRay single “Brilliant” will be released worldwide exclusively through HearJapan!
The title track’s name, “Brilliant”, truly says it all. It is both heavy yet delicate, in-your-face yet intriguing layered, and catchy to boot! “Cocoon”, the aptly named companion track to “Brilliant”, is a decidedly darker song, showcasing lead singer Hizumi’s beautiful voice in a mix of English and Japanese lyrics.
Included as a special bonus to those who purchase the complete single is an approved translation of Hizumi’s magnificent and poetic lyrics–make Hizumi proud and understand his every nuanced word! Ordering the album is simple and simply the most direct way to show support for one of our favorite bands. In fact, with every album sold, the band receives their proper royalties and the label is notified of the location of the purchaser to aid in future tour planning purposes!
