It's the first song for Libera that features full-length Japanese lyrics. A Japanese popular music producer Seiji Kameda wrote, composed and producing "ASHITAE -for the future". It is a Hymn to each person's life.
I remember when I first heard LIBERA's song. I could not hold back my tears listening to their pure and clear singing voice and thinking that their sound of singing might connect the world softly and tenderly.
Music can touch our heart and soul beyond borders and languages. In the world we live in today, hoping to help people feel something warm in their heart, I wrote a song "Tomorrow ~ For the Future" which LIBERA sings in Japanese. "We are not alone. We might be living apart, but we are all still connected to one another", such a message of the song may help to encourage people who struggle to live everyday lives.
In their home country in Great Britain, the boys have checked and learned the meaning of the lyrics and also have worked hard to practice Japanese pronunciation.
The completed work of "Tomorrow ~ For the Future" is the worldview of LIBERA themselves. Their song blesses our life like a hymn, and it also praises our future.
The interludes that you hear are in French, Italian, Polish and Spanish, and they sing the words "Tomorrow~ For the Future" in languages that reflect LIBERA members' countries. It is a magic of music that can instantly create the global relation and touch people's heart.
A beautiful song delivering love, courage, and kindness, LIBERA's "Tomorrow ~ For the Future" was born in autumn 2018. Moving towards 2020, with the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympic Games to be held, I wish the song of LIBERA to become a bridge between Japan and the rest of the world.
