J-pop duo YOASOBI are set to release a new single called “Tsubame” on Oct. 25.
The track is being featured as theme of NHK’s SDGs TV series for children Hirogare! Irotoridori, a show that introduces projects and special programs that make learning about Sustainable Development Goals fun and accessible.
The title of the song means “swallow” and it was written based on a Japanese story with a title that translates to “A Little Swallow’s Big Dream” by Nana Otsutsuki. The story won the grand prize in the TV show’s project that invited submissions to collaborate with the breakout male-female duo to write a new future-themed song.
