“We’re so happy to announce that we’ll be performing the theme song for the Japanese version of Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire! We’re obsessed with Ghostbusters and have watched everything from the franchise, so this is an incredible honor. Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire is about New York City completely freezing in the middle of summer, and the music video for the song could even make us freeze! The choreography was made by us and was inspired by the franchise and the feeling of a frozen summer. We hope you’ll enjoy it!”

It’s summer in New York City and the sun is shining.
A mysterious man brings an antique that has been handed down from generation to generation to an occult appraiser on a street corner. The Spengler family, professional ghost exterminators known as ‘Ghostbusters,’ work with a research team to discover that the antique is a Ghost Orb. Inside lurks Garakka, the strongest ghost in history able to freeze everything in an instant. With the help of his many minions, this terrifying being is set free.

Garakka attacks all of New York City with the power of ice, even causing icicles to appear en masse on local beaches! The city that never sleeps is suddenly transformed as a new ice age begins.

What is Garakka’s true purpose? Who is this mysterious man? Will the Ghostbusters be able to restore summer and save both New York City and the world?
