EXILE ATSUSHI's Comment

I wrote lyrics of "Awakening" with the hope that this song can give power to players of the World Cup, even just a little.
From 2010, EXILE encourages children through soccer tournament "EXILE CUP" which is themed upon "Dreams For Children". Since I also played soccer, it will be a really delightful thing if this song can give a boost to Japan's soccer community.

Feelings for Road to "STAR OF WISH" ~ EXILE FRIDAY

To give a boost to the live tour, we release songs incorporated with EXILE's ideas every month.
I hope you could listen to the songs released every month and feel the thoughts that EXILE want to convey to you. Please stay tuned for the EXILE FRIDAY project in June and July and our album with many new songs which will be released this summer as well as our tour "STAR OF WISH". I wish you happy every day!
