Back on April 10, the teenaged Japanese sensation Babymetal announced a deal with RAL/Sony Music Entertainment and a U.S. re-release of its self-titled debut album. Babymetal (out June 16) features two new bonus tracks, one of them a pulverizing live cut of “Gimme Chocolate!!,” an ode to stuffing your face and being okay with it.
Check out the new live version, premiering exclusively via Billboard:
Vocalist-dancer Su-Metal describes the song to Billboard:
“‘Gimme Chocolate!!’ is basically a song about girls who worry they will get fat if they eat too much chocolate, or girls who just want to eat chocolate after they’ve worked hard for an exam. The last show on our Babymetal World Tour 2014 was held at Brixton Academy in London, where 5,000 people came out to see us. The show was sold out! I was really excited to find out that there are so many fans of Babymetal outside of Japan.”
Earlier this week, the J-pop-meets-metal trio also dropped a new video, “Road of Resistance,” performed live in Japan. Check it out below:
