Chara released the digital single “ohhh!”, the first new song of 2023, on June 7th (Wednesday).
“Ohhh!” is a song that Chara wrote while thinking of SUMIRE, who is active as an actress and model. . SUMIRE reaches the age when Chara gave birth to her, and it is a work where you can look into Chara’s state of mind as a parent who thinks about SUMIRE again and wants her daughter to live as she feels. In addition, the art direction of the jacket photo is handled by his beloved daughter SUMIRE. The jacket photo of this time, which SUMIRE himself drew on the printed out photo of Chara, is a must-see.
Up-and-coming multi-artist Nenashi is in charge of sound production, and the soulful groove is finished in a comfortable pop number. The nationwide tour starting on June 13th (Tuesday) for the first time in four years is all sold out. Please keep checking Chara’s trends in the future.
