YUI - Rain ~YUI Acoustic Version~ (It's My Life / Your Heaven's B-sides)
Rain ~YUI Acoustic Version~ serves as the B-side for YUI's 18th single It's My Life / Your Heaven which was released yesterday on 26th Jan .
Both A-sides have tie up's . It's My Life was used in the new commercial for U-CAN which began airing on Jan 1st while Your Heaven was used to promote Sony's Play You walkman , alongside with 2 other songs that're sung by YUI's labelmates , ie. JASMINE & Shota Shimizu .
Honestly , I have no issues when comes to YUI giving acoustic mixes of her songs & the same thing goes for Rain , which was her previous single release before It's My Life / Your Heaven came along .
The original take of Rain is a straight up angsty no. . The YUI Acoustic Version sees YUI toning things down a great deal while still maintaining the angsty edge Rain has in itself .
YUI kicks off 2011 with this solid single offering It's My Life / Your Heaven in which both A-sides showcase different sides of her which she never portrayed in her previous releases .
I don't know if it's a good or bad thing but personally to me , it gets boring if YUI does the same thing that she's known for , so it's nice of her to just get out of the mundane music rut & experiment .
As a result , I come to appericate both A-sides & the single conclude things nicely with the YUI Acoustic Version of Rain .
YUI's 2nd concert DVD HOTEL HOLIDAYS IN THE SUN will be released on 9th March & it has been 4 years since the release of her maiden DVD Thank you My teens .
