Aimyon

Japanese singer-songwriter Aimyon shared a short promo video for her latest single, "Harunohi," which will be featured as the theme song for the upcoming 27th Crayon Shinchan animated movie, set for release in Japanese theaters April 19.

The "very short movie" accompanying the new single is designed by Japanese visual artist Ran Tondabayashi, who has handled all of Aimyon's official photos and cover art to date.

The soft-focused video finds the 23-year-old singer taking a trip on a "spring day," which is what the title means in English, riding an empty train looking lost in thought or perhaps simply bored. We see her looking through the lens of a camera, struggling to step off with a piece of oversized luggage, and fooling around in and around a small local station. Watch below.

Two versions of the CD single will be released: the regular version featuring a photo of Aimyon sitting on the large suitcase in the video, and a Crayon Shinchan version with a colorful illustration of the Nohara family. A new black-and-white portrait of the artist has been released as well.

"Harunohi" will be released digitally April 3, and the CD will drop April 17. The song is now available for pre-order.
