Japanese guitarist Mitsuru Nakamura has become the latest musician to make a splash in the genre by releasing a new single on the Internet.
The song, entitled 保話 人の元の保持ちの一載 信仰の分録, has been dubbed 人の人の信挄の一十二輄の設定 by a Twitter user known as 九意映年 (Yoshimi-san).
The artist’s Twitter handle, 乵意場好人渡込高報, is also the name of the album the song is based on.
Nakamura said on Twitter that the song’s title is based off of the idea that 人 has the ability to perform music, but with no vocals.
“It’s a song about a Japanese guitar and how we can sing without any vocals,” Nakamura wrote.
“When I’m performing I just sing like this, so I think I’ll probably do a song called 人の目の解秘々(The Japanese Guitar)” The title comes from the title of Nakamura’s upcoming solo album, titled 名無大様 (Tears of the World), which he plans to release in 2018.
In April, Nakamura tweeted that he planned to release a new song on May 1, but it was postponed because of a lack of funding.
It was the second time Nakamura made a song available for streaming after he released a new music video for his new single, “Honey”.
He posted on Twitter on Wednesday that he was going to release another song called “Nakaimo-chan” (言い人), a title that is an homage to a famous Japanese anime character.
He also teased that he would be releasing a video for “Hear Me Roar” (約豆の魚), a song that he has performed previously.
As a result of Nakamura’s success, other Japanese guitarists are taking notice of his popularity.
One of them, singer-songwriter Tomohiro Nakayama, tweeted that his favorite song on the internet was Nakamura.
I’d like to give you a shout out for a new @MitsuruNakamura song I heard recently, I like it, but I can’t wait to see it live.
Tomohiro (@tomohiro) April 14, 2020Nakatsuki’s debut album, which is due out in May, has received critical acclaim, but the Japanese musician said he hasn’t yet decided whether or not to record a follow-up to his recent success.
Speaking to The Guardian, Nakamur said he had plans to record more music and would be performing at events to promote the album.
When asked if he was planning to write more music or play music, he said: “If it comes to it, I might do that.”
