New song:『Pray for you』

A new song was unveiled by Ayu on Instagram and twitter today: "Pray for You". This was originally meant to be performed for the first time at Yoyogi Stadium for Countdown Live 2020-2021 A ~MUSIC for LIFE~.

The instrumental is available to listen to here.

Ayu's original announcement:
『Pray for you』
本来であれば、代々木で初披露するはずだった曲を、確かに存在した時間達と共に。

rough translation
『Pray for you』
The song that was originally supposed to be unveiled in Yoyogi, alongside that time that certainly existed.

This is so bittersweet... I'm really happy to know we'll get more music but it's so sad that she didn't get to surprise us the way she wanted to. I'm so thankful to Ayu...

It sounds familiar but there were a lot of unexpected elements. The song seems really grand towards the end. I can't wait to hear it.

She seems to have used the same sound as in one of her interludes, but I can't remember which one atm. LABIRYNTH maybe?

I've already freaked out about the song on SNS, but it sounds really good! I was so surprised when she posted it

It would have been a very touching and positive way for ayu to reach out to her fans physically, but it was just not meant to be. We will Pray for you ayu!

I love this instrumental, sounds so like her...it's emotional, even if we didn't get a CDL.

I can't wait for it to be available in full on streaming platforms.

Thank you, Ayu, as always...
