Voice Actress Idol Unit NOW ON AIR Performs New Song "HPBtoU!" from Each Member's Home

Spring 2020 TV Anime "Woodpecker Detective's Office" ED song single will be available on May 13



The six-member voice actress idol unit NOW ON AIR has posted a two-minute performance clip of "HPBtoU!" (Happy Birthday to You!), the coupling song from their fourth single "Gondola no Uta" (The Song of Gondola) to be released on May 13, 2020. The members performed the song from each home as part of the "Utatsunagi" (Song Connection) online project by Japanese artists.


Under the hashtag "utatsunagi," various artists from the Japanese music scene, including acclaimed anison singers/voice actors, have been posting short performance videos filmed from their homes in order to stay connected during the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. NOW ON AIR received the baton from Aira Yuuki, the lyrics writer of "HPBtoU!".


The title song of the single, "Gondola no Uta" is a cover version of a classic Japanese popular song originally released in 1915 and is now featured as the ED theme for the TV anime adaptation of Kei Ii's mystery novel Kitsutsuki Tantei-dokoro / Woodpecker Detective's Office.
