YOSHIKI and HYDE unveiled the long-awaited full version of the new theme song for the hit anime series ATTACK ON TITAN titled “Red Swan.”

YOSHIKI completed “Red Swan” in Los Angeles early last month and divulged the secret that “Red Swan” was created partially based on a section from X JAPAN’s hit song “Rusty Nail”. Speaking about the collaboration, YOSHIKI said “Creating a song that will break down walls, in more ways than one. That was my mission, in a manner of speaking. I never thought I’d actually accept it though!” “Nobody can turn down a request from YOSHIKI,” HYDE added, laughing, “but seriously I was truly delighted to join this collaboration.”

YOSHIKI gave some insight into the stories behind the two CD covers. First, on the “YOSHIKI feat. HYDE disc” CD cover, YOSHIKI explained that it was designed with elements of the cover for “Rusty Nail”, with the blue blood trickling down. He also mentioned that a brand-new illustration was created especially for the “Attack on Titan” version of the CD.

YOSHIKI and HYDE will team up again for a performance on October 28 at HYDE’s Halloween Party 2018. The pair also shared the news that HYDE is set to appear for a guest performance during November’s YOSHIKI CLASSICAL 2018 ~Two Violet Nights~ YOSHIKI with Philharmonic Orchestra event in Tokyo, YOSHIKI’s first classical concerts since his two back-to-back sold-out performances at Carnegie Hall in January 2017.
