Natsuko Kondo Drops ‘Akai Ito,’ the First of Four Consecutive Monthly Releases


Singer-songwriter Natsuko Kondo released the new song Akai Ito, her first new song in nearly three and a half years, on March 14.

The track is the first of four planned consecutive monthly releases ahead of the artist’s planned ‘rebirth’ in July 2023. The pop love song is a classic Natsuko track, focusing entirely on a girl’s powerful feelings. Listeners won’t be able to help but sympathize with the scary-cute lyrics.

Active mainly in the Kansai and Chugoku regions, Natsuko Kondo continues to appear on numerous TV and radio programs. She will hold a solo concert at OSAKA RUIDO on May 19.

<Comment from Natsuko Kondo>
“This song–the first I’ve released in a very long time–is based on my own life experiences.
My true feelings are sewn into the lyrics, and these are feelings that can be hard to express. Putting them into a pop melody makes it easier–rather than using a red string (Akai Ito) to romantically be linked to someone, I’d rather be kept on a thick leash instead! ♡
This song is the perfect tempo for listening to on a nice spring walk. (lol)
I hope that you’re looking forward to the rest of these consecutive releases! Be sure to listen!”
