Artists’ comments:

EXILE SHOKICHI
To be invited by the one who I respect most, MIYAVI, is truly blessing, my tension is high!! When I first visited his studio and the moment I heard MIYAVI’s solo, I was shaken!! Also, when my topline is done, I felt like just made a brand new creation, my own music is growing more and more. It was a fun session. I am very thankful!!

KenKen (LIFE IS GROOVE, RIZE, Dragon Ash)
I just realized, I’ve been friend with him for so long. For a musician, to have a friend to encourage each other is one of the blessing. Let’s do this a lot more!! Let’s fill the world with encouragement.

Che’Nelle
I was so happy to be able to make something with the one and only MIYAVI. I wanted to make a song that reach people’s sympathy and at the same time just like in the club, catchy. I think I made it! I would be happy if everyone all over the world enjoy the song. MIYAVI, thank you for inviting me! I am happy because you let me took a part in your art!

SKY-HI
The first time I met him, it was a free-style session at the radio. Even now I still remember it like I just did that session yesterday, the unstoppable adrenalin, caught in the sensation, I felt like I could go anywhere. After that, the Samurai I would like to collaborate with was MIYAVI.
I feel proud from the bottom of my heart because just like the last free-style session, we did not strike each other but more like fighting side by side together! This song will be one precious song in my entire career. I’m looking forward to the day I could exchange swords with you again.

ちゃんみな (Chanmina)
MIYAVI approached me like a brother and it was fun, and an easy thing to do. I think I was able to make a song with mutual respect toward each other. Because he made “Pain” as a theme, the composition was made based on my own “Pain”.

HYDE
If I made a song with him, I want it to be a song which everyone can sing to. I sent him my idea and he rapidly arranged it, and it was almost no pattern to it (laugh). I feel like he is a real artist who is searching for art. I must learn from him ~

VERBAL
A person who always give 1000% passion to his work and fun time, MIYAVI! Because previously I wanted to make a song, several studio sessions with him were unexpectedly very creative, thanks to him a very fun and cool song was created! I’m looking forward to his album!

Masato ( Coldrain )
“I challenge artist who think that music doesn’t need vocalist by my voice”, this kind of challenge is not good.
My small wish MIYAVI x MASATO, which appeared when we did a stage together, finally came true. I want to do it again ASAP. I’m greedy bout this. Please invite me again!!

Miura Daichi
When I first received the demo called “Dancing With My Fingers”, the moment I listened to it, there is such a feeling that this song would be the best song, only the two of us can make. When I sing while dancing with MIYAVI at live concert or TV Show, I have fun. Finally, when the two of us made an original song, I am happy. Thank you for inviting me. I hope this song can reach a lot of people’s heart.

[LYRICS] MIYAVI-GUARD YOU DAY2MIX (english translation)



MIYAVI-GUARD YOU DAY2MIX

 A clear blue sky
A desert city
The usual view
And the scent of the room, before dawn
You're still sleeping In order to not wake you up
I quietly open the door and I go, I go

 SA KU RA
 is falling down 

This is the way to guard you
To be far away from you
I'll do anything to take away the pain that harms you
'Cause I'll protect you from here

Time goes by
Today the sun is going down again
Every time I close my eyes
I dream of those days 
When morning comes again
They quickly fade away
But I won't let go of that warmth

SA KU RA
is falling down

This is the way to guard you
 To be far away from you
I'll do anything to take away the pain that harms you
 'Cause I'll protect you from here

 Till the next spring comes again

Even though the world is so sunny
I wonder why my tears won't stop If we look up, the sky is the same blue
It's always wrapping us

 If I close my eyes, the us of those days are here

---------------------------------------------------

Aoku hareta sora
Daremo inai machi
Minareta keshiki to
Yoake mae, heya no nioi
Mada nemuru kimi wo
Okoshite shimawanai you ni
Sotto doa wo ake I go, I go

SA KU RA
is falling down 

This is the way to guard you
To be far away from you
 I'll do anything to take away the pain that harms you
Koko kara kimi wo mamoru kara

Toki wa sugi
Kyou mo, mata hi ga kureteku
Me wo tsumuru tabi
 Ano koro no yume wo miru nda
 Mata asa ga kureba
Sugu ni kiete shimau keredo
Nukumori dake wa I won't let go

SA KU RA
is falling down

This is the way to guard you
 To be far away from you
I'll do anything to take away the pain that harms you
 Koko kara kimi wo mamoru kara

 Mata tsugi no haru ga kuru made

 Konna ni mo, sekai wa hareteru noni
Nande daro, namida ga tomaranai ya
Miagereba, sora wa onaji ao de Itsudemo, bokura wo tsutsunde kureru

Me wo tojireba, ano koro no bokura ga iru
