Earlier it was announced that Akanishi Jin will be releasing a new single “Seasons” on December 28th, and holding a fan event at Yokohama Arena on January 7th, 2012.
The upcoming single “Seasons” will be released in two different versions; the regular edition, which includes a special 16-page photo booklet, and a limited edition, which includes a DVD featuring the title track’s PV as well as its making-of video. There will also be four different cover jackets for the limited edition to match the single’s four seasons theme.
Akanishi commented about the title track, “It’s a love song, but it is not only for men and women, or lovers. It’s a song of love toward everything, including family or friends who you cherish.”
