22-Year-Old Actress Touko Miura Joins Weathering With You's Theme Song as Vocalist

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

March 2017. 


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.

love can do?) performed by RADWIMPS.
