Just to be clear, no I am not dropping this cover. In fact, I’ve got some exciting news for everyone! YouTube artist Yukiko Suzugawa has agreed this past weekend to collaborate with me to provide vocals for the cover, rather than just the instrumental like I had planned. Of course, there are plans to release the instrumental ahead of time.
Also in the works are vocalized versions of:
– True Story
– Dazzling Smile (some custom vocals, not Shihoko Hirata’s, even though she has one of the loveliest voices… let’s keep it custom)
– Key plus words
Next to be tracked are layered instruments, such as synthesizers, keyboards (not piano… that’s already finished), samples, and other things to add some flair. I’ve decided to forgo a full on orchestral section as there’s so much guitar going on already. Whether this detracts from the spirit of the song is still up in the air. If I do decide to put it in, it will be the last thing I do.
Until then, I’ll be looking forward to this collaboration and other releases as they come out. Stay tuned for more updates!
