Japanese idol group Niji no Conquistador ditch the sunshine, bikinis and beach-based shenanigans that they’re popular for with melancholy winter single Namida, Awayuki (Teardrop, Frosty Snow / ナミダ、あわ雪).
The track is available to officially download and stream from today, ahead of its physical release in Japan next year with group’s new tour Blu-ray Winter Love, Like Summer! ~ RAINBOW JAM2021 SUMMER SHOWER ~. The single will also be used in this year’s Fuyusupo!! WINTER SPORTS FESTA commercial, the fifth consecutive year that a Niji no Conquistador songs has been used for the event
“It's an important day for Nijicon,” comments member Moe Tsurumi on the release of their new single and upcoming tour Blu-ray. “The video of the national tour celebrating the seventh anniversary of Nijicon, the fifth consecutive year having our song tied to Fuyusupo!! WINTER SPORTS FESTA, and all the things we've built up over the years have come together in this work! We put everything we had into this tour and proved that we are the strongest not only in summer but also in winter. We hope you enjoy both the tour, which we put everything we had into, and this mature and sad winter song, which prove that we not only give our best in summer, but winter too! We hope you enjoy both of them.”
