FictionJunction feat. LiSA “from the edge” to be released digitally


After a weirdly long wait, and after the song was not released inside one of LiSA’s singles, only its TV size became available on online stores since June 30. On Aug 30 was announced (1, 2)  that  the full size of “from the edge” will be released digitally on September 2, 2019.

Interestingly, according to Y.Kajiura’s tweets:

  •  The chorus at the end of the TV size is sang by LiSA herself (even though it sounds like Chiaki or Fion) (1, 2)
  • Takahashi “Jr” Tomoharu and Koichi Korenaga did chorus for the song (apparently the english part before the refrain) (1, 2)
