Arashi successfully return with the upbeat & dynamic “I’ll Be There”

Arashi have returned with their latest, “I’ll Be There“, which is the theme song for ‘Kizoku Tantei‘. The drama stars Aiba Masaki as an aristocratic detective, so the music video follows that theme.

The upbeat big band sound with a reliance on brass was right up my alley, and it updated an old-fashioned song quite effectively. It’s surprisingly dynamic sonically, and the chorus is quite the earworm.

It’s been a while since I’ve genuinely loved an Arashi release, but this was a lot of fun.
