CHAI have shared a new single, "Whole," which is also the theme song to new Japanese romantic comedy/drama series, Koi-senu Futari. Funky in a Chic sort of way, the song has CHAI making a plea for us to accept each other's differences. “Sometimes, no one empathizes with you," says Yuki, who wrote the song's lyrics. "But is that really a bad thing? I don’t want to make my thing, or someone else’s thing, something to be ashamed of. Because our ‘differences’ may not be our enemies. I wish we could love each other’s little differences and little similarities entirely – that’s the hope behind this song." Listen below.
The band are also getting ready to release the WINK Together remix EP, and will be in North America soon for a tour that includes headline shows and dates supporting Mitski. They'll headline Brooklyn's Elsewhere on February 15 with Su Lee opening. All dates are listed below.
