Director Makoto Shinkai: "Her voice is more like the sound of the world itself."
As with Kimi no Na wa./Your Name., four-member Japanese rock band RADWIMPS works on the theme/
insert songs and soundtrack music for Makoto Shinkai's new anime feature film Tenki no Ko/Weathering
With You. And it is confirmed today that 22-year-old actress Touko Miura also joins the theme song's recording
as a vocalist.
Miura was born in Hokkaido in 1966. While acting for various TV drama and films, such as Sadako vs Kayako
(2016), The Girl Who Leapt Through Time (TV drama/2016), and Beautiful Bones: Sakurako's Investigation
(TV drama/2017), she released a cover song album "Kakushite Watashi wa, Toumei kara Hajimeru koto ni
Natta" (Thus, it has been decided that I am going to start from the transparency) from Universal Music in
The audition to find the best female singer for the film's theme song lasted a year, then she and the band
spent two months for the recording under the direction of the band's leader Yojiro Noda. Director Shinkai
says, "Rather than a singing voice of an actress, a voice more like the sound of the world itself. A voice
that carries something a little beyond a person's emotions straight. I had a such feeling toward Touko
Miura's voice. "
The film's song & soundrack album (five vocal songs and 27 soundtrack tunes) is set to be released on
July 19, simultaneously with the release of the film.
