ic_yoshikiYoshiki recently mentioned working on a theme song – and here it is! It’s for the new Saint Seiya animation movie, which will be released this year.

“I feel greatly honored to write the theme song for SAINT SEIYA. I truly believe I have created a touching song with a beautiful melody using a hero as the motif.
I very happily accepted this offer since I of course knew SAINT SEIYA and I am a great fan of anime. I saw the manga a long time ago. Before writing the song I had the chance to see the new movie, which feels like it was created at a magnificent scale. I actually faced a big struggle with matching my music with the movie. The result is a sort of ballad, rather than a loud piece. I think the song suits the magnificent scale sensitivity of SAINT SEIYA.
I will play this song during the upcoming Yoshiki Classical World Tour at 13 venues in 10 countries.”
-YOSHIKI
