Given the rising popularity of lyric videos in today's internet music culture, we decided to try our hand at creating one featuring a B'z song. The song we decided to work with was the English tune "Love Bomb", itself being a new rendition of the 2005 Japanese single "Ai no Bakudan".
(Update for 2017—This edition of the song was previously released in 2012 as part of the band's debut English album but was recently delisted from international iTunes stores with the coming of the new year. A similar delisting followed after five years of availability for the band's 2007 International EP. It bears noting that "Into Free -Dangan-" remains available worldwide as a single.)
As a bonus: You can also now download a collection of eight custom wallpapers inspired by this project right here. Each wallpaper was created for a resolution of 1920x1080 but should scale nicely to any widescreen resolution.
The interview with B'z in the latest issue of the B'z official fanclub magazine Be With! reveals that "Love Bomb" will be the next Pepsi Nex title song. While it is not known that this is in fact an English version of Ai no Bakudan(=Love Bomb), it should be safe to assume that it is.
Koshi also mentions that "Love Bomb" came up while working on songs. It looks like B'z is indeed working on an English album.
There's no word on a release date for "Love Bomb" so far... stay tuned!
