With GLAY’s 13th album “MUSIC LIFE” followed a bonus CD called “BALLADE BEST MELODIES” and on this one you can hear the song featured in the video below. It’s titled ““TSUZURE ORI ~so far and yet so close”.
This song was elected as the fan’s favorite of the bonus CD, and hence, GLAY decided to make something more out of it together with the fans. So, on March 1st, GLAY collaborated with free video streaming site GYAO! and started the creation of a stop motion video project called “TSUZURE ORI ~so far and yet so close~ MV PROJECT” and this is the result.
This is TERU’s own comment regarding the project:
“Over the past 10 years, we wanted to make a music video that represented our connection with our fans. GLAY has been around for 20 years! We wanted to make something with our fans that have supported us over the years. It was a huge undertaking to develop an app for this. Please participate! Let’s make a beautiful music video together!”
Name: The name of the band is a deliberate misspelling of the word “gray” which described their music style.
Highschool band: Glay was formed as a highschool band when Takuro asked Teru to play the drums.
Genre: Originally a visual kei band.
