Natsuko Kondo Releases New Song ‘Yakusokutte Warukunaina,’ the Third of Four Monthly Releases


On May 9, singer-songwriter Natsuko Kondo released her new song Yakusokutte Warukunaina, the third of four consecutive monthly releases.

The track was written by Natsuko Kondo herself during a difficult period in which the artist found it difficult to keep going. The open and emotional lyrics are set to a rhythm reminiscent of a heartbeat, blending both the inorganic and the lively. Kondo hopes that it can touch the hearts of people who feel the same way.

<Comment from Natsuko Kondo>
“I wrote this song, lyrics and all, the moment inspiration struck. It didn’t feel like I was just writing a song–it felt like I was doing something necessary, something I needed to do to keep living.
While I was writing it, I wasn’t thinking about releasing it. I wasn’t thinking about anyone else hearing it. I was simply trying to save myself.
Why am I alive? I’m not sure how many people have this thought, but if you’ve ever asked yourself the same question, or if you’re just having a bad day, I hope you’ll listen to this track.”
