This is Miho Fukuhara's 16th single. This album was produced by legendary producer and pianist Toshiyuki Mori. During the pandemic, She went to his studio and asked myself what soul music is and what Miho Fukuhara is. Over time, she spun the song, letting herself flow and overflow with the chords he played. It became a very personal song for her as well. Miho Fukuhara:Vocal Toshiyuki Mori:Piano&producued Yusuke Onishi:Guiter
