Akanishi Jin - Eternal
CD + DVD
Eternal is Akanishi Jin's debut solo single & it will be released next month on 2nd March .
Akanishi Jin was the former 2nd co-lead vocalist of KAT-TUN before he made his departure from the group last year to pursue a solo career & Eternal is his 1st release via Warner Music Japan .
The A-side is an elegant ballad that will touch the hearts of swooning fans everywhere .
In an interview , Akanishi revealed that he wrote this song 4 years ago to celebrate his parents' wedding anniversary or birthdays of his relatives .
When asked about the reason why he decided to release Eternal as his debut solo single , he replied that it was a present for the fans . Apparently there were a lot of fans , who asked for Eternal to get released since he played it live for quite a while .
Akanishi's not my fave member in KAT-TUN but still , I will not deny that he still has 1 of the best voices in Johnny's & Associates . Also , I enjoy the stuff that he did with LANDS too .
Eternal is a very pretty ballad which I feel it's good enough to rival a fan fave ie. care & considering the meaning behind Eternal , I think it's really thoughtful for Akanishi to write this song in line with his friend's marriage which's something $ can't buy at a time when comes to something like this .
Murasaki (Purple) serves as the B-side in Eternal & for this , Murasaki is considered a fan fave which Akanishi has been performing in concerts from 2004 until now .
