Back with another collaboration with the Fate/Stay series, Aimer lends her voice to “Haru wa yuku (春はゆく)” her 18th single. A sense of mystery fills the musical offering here as Aimer leads you further down into the mystery. Black settings and beams of light from above set the stage as the singer pipes her instrument like organ tones. The short version cuts us off just when robed men surround our protagonist, so it’s a bit hard to get the full arc of the narrative. We are instead rewarded with snippets of the rest of songs from the single. “Haru wa yuku / marie” goes on sale March 25, 2020.
Aimer (エメ Eme, “eh-meh”) is a Japanese pop singer and lyricist signed to SME Records and managed by FOURseam. Her name comes from the verb “Aimer” in French which means “to love”. Aimer’s father was the bassist of a band, so Aimer grew up surrounded by music from a very young age. She began studying the piano in elementary school and highly looked up to Ringo Sheena and Utada Hikaru. In junior high school, listening to Avril Lavigne inspired her to take up guitar and began writing English lyrics. At the age of 15, Aimer lost her voice due to over-usage of her vocal cords and was forced to undergo silence therapy for treatment. However, that did not stop her, and after she recovered, she acquired her distinctive husky voice. On September 7, 2011, she debuted for Defstar Records, with the song “Rokutousei no Yoru”, which was selected by Fuji TV as the ending theme of the 2011 anime series No. 6. Since that time, Aimer has performed tracks for many anime including Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn, Natsume’s Book of Friends, and Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works.
