Tsunku will be writing and composing the music for YEAH YEAH YEAH / Akogare no Stress-free. However, Hana, Takenawa no Toki will be a cover of the theme song for the film Kita no Sakura Mori which was performed by them back at Hina Fest 2018.
The single will be released on September 26th.
Those of us who have been following Hello! Project for a while are no strangers to the “every single H!P member joins forces” concept. In fact, the group name seems to be an homage to H.P. All Stars, the first “all H!P” group formed back in 2004 featuring Hello! Project Kids, Morning Musume, Country Musume, Melon Kinenbi, and more.
It’s exciting that Hello! Project is once again going for a group made up of every member. The last time we saw this happen was back in 2011 with Hello! Project Mobekimasu. Stay tuned for more details!
