Ringo collaborates with Soil & "Pimp" Sessions once again


There's a new Ringo song around the corner, and this time it's a collaboration with Soil & "Pimp" Sessions, a band she has worked with a lot of times before. It's called "殺し屋危機一髪" (Koroshiya Kiki Ippatsu), meaning something like "The Assassin's Close Call" but officially translated as "The Assassin's Assassin".
The lyrics were written by Ringo herself and the song was composed by her and Tabu Zombie, the band's trumpeter and one of the founding members. The arranger is Saitou Neko, another regular, and the song will feature a small orchestra.

There is a special teaser clip on YouTube and NicoNicoDouga, and a full PV will be released on June 7. The song in the teaser clip is called "ピンプパンサー" (Pimp Panther), which will either be a B-Side of the single or another track of a future album, if I may take any guess.



If the title of the song and video can tell us anything is that this is probably going to be reminiscent of spy action songs like "Mayonaka wa Junketsu", "Mittei Monogatari" or maybe "Karisome Otome".  The video is also very reminiscent of "Konya wa Karasawagi".
But that's just taking guesses, we'll have to check it out on June 7.

This collaboration represents the 2nd stage of Soil & "Pimp" Sessions 10th Anniversary, following April's release of "Jazzy Conversation", a collaboration with Rhymester, one of Mummy-D's hip-hop bands. You should remember Mummy-D from all the collaborations with Ringo, as well.
These anniversary releases point out to an eventual Soil's album this year, with "殺し屋危機一髪" included.

The following image, posted on kronekodow as a "mysterious photograph", looks pretty much like what the single cover will look like, without any words on it.
"Jazzy Conversation" was a digital-only release, but this time it will be a retail release also.
