Five and a half years following the release of his last solo single on CD, Koshi has announced the release of his long-awaited ninth single 「Hane」(Feather). The title track of the single will serve as the opening theme to the anime series Detective Conan from January 9th.

The single will be out on January 13th, 2016 with Koshi’s solo tour 「Koshi Inaba Live 2016 ~en III~」 kicking off just three days later. Several packages are available for purchase: CD, CD+DVD, CD+Blu-ray, CD+DVD+Bluray.

The content contained on the DVD as well as the Blu-ray that comes with the “Ryu ga Gotoku” edition is the same—to suit both DVD and Blu-ray viewers.

Koshi Inaba will provide the theme song to the WOWOW drama “Godan” which is set to start airing every Sunday 10PM from November 22nd. The song is called “Suiro” (waterway).

Koshi commented as follows: “I painted the main character of the song as a person who believes in tomorrow and tries to do something with his life, although he regrets his past and is in fear of loss amidst the two views on passing time: flowing time and accumulating time. I’m looking forward to hearing it in the drama.”

A 60 second promotion video has been posted on the show’s official website, in which the song is audible for about 15 seconds.
