Love the hair. I hope this will be a collaboration with Ed Motta or something.

They forgot to photoshop a smile on it, and bug eyes. Terrible African-American hair style No offense to Scribble R.

June 11th release date confirmed for the CD single of the theme. No further info yet on if there will be a B-side on the release.

Looks like that Chinese site's listing was real then...

Wtf, internal leaker?

Still, I actually fear this song a little bit, there's huge potential of it being campy as hell...

It will be purchased without question though lolsigh.

Beat you to that.

World Cup theme surely means some tie-in junk with the 1st pressing?!11!!

The poster or a Ringo (apple) football is surely the way forward.

I'm betting on something dumb like a whistle.

Which I imagine lots of being in this song. And lame percussion drums. Kinda like Born to Be by Ayumi Hamasaki haha.

It's either that or another Jihen-style cheerleader-pep-squad anthem. Tomei Ningen '14.

Out of the two, I prefer the Ayumi style, mainly cause she hasn't done it before. But it will still cause physical cringes.

I sincerely hope I'm wrong. Or at least have a good bside or two.

"NHKサッカー放送テーマ音楽を手掛ける

6月から、FIFA サッカーワールドカップが開催されるなど、2014年はサッカーイヤー。そんな今年、椎名林檎がNHKのサッカー放送のテーマ音楽を担当することとなりました。書下ろしの新曲は、6月11日(水)にニューシングルとしてリリースすることも決定しています。椎名林檎の新しい時代の幕開けとも言える、このプロジェクト、どうぞご期待ください。

最新アーティスト写真の拡大版とともに、椎名林檎からのメッセージはこちらからどうぞ。"

The "Dawn of a new era of Shiina Ringo" stuff kinda bothers me...

It's not offensive to point out that a human feature or a cultural phenomenon is African-like, but to always bundle African with "American" is just silly.
