We have been fans of World Order for a long time, and are honored that they’ve chosen to release their latest single through TuneCore Japan. - Iichiro Noda, TuneCore Japan CEO."
Tokyo, Japan (PRWEB) June 25, 2013
Major Japanese group World Order in partnership with TuneCore Japan has just released their new single IMPERIALISM. The release is available worldwide digitally in iTunes, Amazon MP3, music.jp and Oricon Music.
The new single and video IMPERIALISM builds on the group’s mission to prompt reflection on contemporary society, working styles, global culture, and images of modern Japan. The video was shot in Washington D.C. against backdrops of American sights like the U.S. Capitol building and Union Station.
The choice to use TuneCore Japan for a major Japanese artist release is a radical, but logical choice for World Order. Worldwide access is a priority for the group and Japanese record labels bring traditional limitations when it comes to distribution outside of Japan.
Genki Sudo, the group’s frontman, says, “From our early decision to place our first videos on YouTube, rather than through a Japanese media channel, we’ve always strived to reach people across the entire globe, not just Japan. We’re proud to work with TuneCore Japan to overcome national borders and spread our message even further.”
TuneCore Japan’s CEO Mr. Iichiro Noda is equally enthusiastic about their relationship with World Order and says, “We have been fans of World Order for a long time, and are honored that they’ve chosen to release their latest single through TuneCore Japan. As one of the few Japanese artists to regularly receive attention and acclaim internationally, we feel it’s a perfect fit, and World Order epitomizes the trend of Asian artists crossing borders to find an international fan base. TuneCore is going to continue to work in Japan on behalf of all Japanese artists.”
