The lifecycle of a song (Part 2)

in music •  2 years ago

Two weeks ago I wrote a post called The Lifecycle of a song 桜流し. It was about the process of writing a piece called Sakura Nagashi. Yesterday the song was re-released on the album Fantôme by Utada Hikaru.

The record is #5 on US iTunes (!) and it also hit #1 in 9 countries. If you're browsing the iTunes store looking for some new music then give it a listen.

To celebrate...

I'm going to give away 5 copies of the piano sheets for Sakura Nagashi to anyone
that wants to learn to play the piano part! Add a comment below to win!

Looks absolutely beautiful seeing it as sheet music.

A have to admit, first time when I heard it, it was not a big deal for me. I don't know why. Now I heard it carefully again and i have to change my opinion. Now it's amazing. Why? :P
