  • The single was officially announced on May 12, 2019 during the Morning Musume '19 Concert Tour Haru ~BEST WISHES!~ night performance in Hokkaido.[8]
  • This is the first single to not feature Iikubo Haruna since "Kono Chikyuu no Heiwa wo Honki de Negatterun da yo!". However, she makes a cameo appearance in the music video for "Jinsei Blues".
  • Because both songs are exciting for lives, YOSHIKO choreographed the choruses for everyone to dance along.[2]
    • She made the dance for "Jinsei Blues" robotic and clock-like because the intro reminded her of Disney's Electrical Parade. She also added a "jinsei pose" of the 人 (hito) kanji in the chorus.[3]
    • The choreography for "Seishun Night" was changed several times.[9][10] The first version was only performed at Hello! Project 20th Anniversary!! Hello! Project Hina Fes 2019. Afterwards, gradual changes were made to parts of the dance throughout the first half of Morning Musume '19's spring concert tour.[11][12] The final version, which was a completely new dance, was first performed in Fukuoka on April 27, 2019.[13][14]
  • When Tsunku was asked on Twitter if the extra text in the "Jinsei Blues" music video was his idea, he answered that he did not know about it and that adding different writing on top of the lyrics misconstrues the song's message. He ended his reply with "Well, that's life, too. Haha"[15]
