If you've already watched the first few episodes of Sonic X in Japan (either on TV or via other methods...), you're probably obsessed with the opening theme of the new anime, just like we are. 'Sonic Drive' is an absolute banger of a song, and now you can choose to pre-order the CD single so you can play it whenever you like!
This might sound a bit weird, but CD single releases for TV shows is not an unusual thing in Japan. Most opening and ending themes for shows (particularly anime) are performed and produced by big Japanese pop and rock stars, and Sonic Drive is no exception with the track involving legendary Japanese musician Hironobu Kageyama and singer Hideaki Takatori.
'Sonic Drive' is available to pre-order on CDJapan (English) and Neowing (Japanese), at a price of ¥1,048 (or $9.50 USD for import). It'll release on 28th May 2023 and will feature the following tracks:
- SONIC DRIVE
- Just call me SONIC～眩しい風になれ～
- SONIC DRIVE(Original Karaoke)
Now if you'll excuse us, we're going to pre-order and hum the song in our heads for the next couple of weeks.
