Tsunku’s comments about the single

This is the 2nd single by Tanpopo. The girls are growing day by day, so I felt like I needed to create something to fit into their development. It has a very matured sound.

We recorded this song in New York in January. The weather outside our studio was very beautiful, but once I stepped outside the door, it was freezing. When I looked up the sky, I saw the bright sun and felt like it was a warm and gentle dandelion flower we all possess in our hearts. Please plant your own “Tanpopo” in your heart this winter so it can survive the cold winter in a warm place and enjoy the warm spring together with you.
