Shiranai ne Desho? is Ken Hirai's 44th single & it was released yesterday on 30th May .
This single was released on the same day alongside with Ken's 43rd single Todokanaikara .
Promo wise , Shiranai ne Desho? was chosen to be used to promote the TV Asahi's drama Mikaiketsu no Onna .
Prior to the single physical release , Shiranai ne Desho? was 1st released digitally on 17th May .
Just like Todokanaikara , 3 live recordings serve as B-side songs in Shiranai ne Desho? which they were all recorded from last Dec's Ken's Bar 2017 X'mas Special!! .
I reviewed Todokanaikara yesterday so today's focus is on Shiranai ne Desho? .
I already mentioned that both Todokanaikara & Shiranai ne Desho? are very different from each other . While Todokanaikara is an upbeat acoustic guitar driven love song , that's not the case for Shiranai ne Desho? .
For Shiranai ne Desho? , it's almost like Non Fiction in that both songs are emo sounding but Shiranai ne Desho? has a more stronger piano driven presence .
To me , Ken demonstrates how musically versatile he's as he pretty much can nail almost every different kind of music genre and for him to release Todokanaikara & Shiranai ne Desho? side by side together on the same day , it's proof how musically talented Ken's after being in the business for a very long time .
I'm not expecting Ken to release a new studio album so soon & hopefully Todokanaikara & Shiranai ne Desho? will not be the only new songs that he released this year .
