J-pop band RADWIMPS shared the new music video accompanying the movie version of "Shukusai" featuring Toko Miura, the theme song of Makoto Shinkai's latest blockbuster film, Weathering With You.

The title, "Shukusai," means "celebration" or "festival" in English, and the song can be heard in the background of a scene in the movie where people's feelings lighten up along with the change in weather. The video sees Miura -- an actress and singer -- standing alone in a softly lit cave, and the vegetation around her begins to sprout as if energized by her soothing, clear vocals.

RADWIMPS will be releasing a Weathering With You soundtrack EP on Nov. 27 that features five songs from the movie in its entirely (complete version), which had only been available in their movie-edit versions so far.
