From the Press Release:
The October 7 release was ‘Chime (AmPm Remix)’, the duo’s reworking of Ai Otsuka’s hit song ‘Chime’, which was part of an ongoing project where Otsuka is working with producers and track makers of a variety of genres. AmPm’s collaboration was the third in the series.
Chime (AmPm Remix)
Now out is the Lupin Ⅲ! This remix is the first of a continuing project whereby a selection of high-profile artists will reinterpret original audio recordings from the soundtrack to the beloved ‘Lupin’ anime series. The music was originally recorded from 2015 to 2019 by Yuji Ohno, composer on the ‘Lupin’ series since the 1970s.
Lupin the III (AmPM Remix)
Then on October 21, AmPm will follow up with an original song, “Hurt You.” This composition features guest vocalists Michael Kaneko and Nao Kawamura, both of whom have lent their voices to hit AmPm tracks in the past–with a combined 47 million plays on Spotify. This will be their first time to sing together on the same AmPm track. ‘hurt you’ is a danceable mid-tempo cut whose lyrics tell the story of a desperate, lovelorn man. AmPm debuted in March 2017 with the instant hit track ‘Best Part Of Us feat. Michael Kaneko’, which has since racked up some 35 million plays on Spotify, bringing this fast-rising Japanese masked duo to fans around the world. Their three releases this month attest to the duo’s impressive diversity of styles, as they master a range of genres and bolster a global reputation as producers, remixers and artists.
