How the new song will be like ? A comment found at the Arslan Senki website can give us a hint

“One Light”は、まだ見えぬ自身の道を進んでいく主人公の心を歌っています。自分自身を奮い立たせるような一曲になりました。是非たくさんの方に作品と共に楽しんで頂けたら嬉しいです。

One light sings for the heart of the protagonist who goes forward to his path that cannot yet be seen. Its a song to cheer up yourself.
