It’s been revealed that AKB48’s Kashiwagi Yuki will be releasing her solo debut single (currently untitled) on February 6, 2013.
This was announced on November 11th during “KING RECORDS presents August 29th Release 27th Maxi Single ‘Gingham Check’ Nationwide Handshake Event AKB48 Matsuri powered by Kami TV” at Seibu Dome in Saitama. Kashiwagi’s solo debut single will be released from her independent label, ‘YukiRing‘, which will be established under Avex Entertainment. It’s also been picked up as the theme song for Kashiwagi’s starring drama starting in January.
When these details were announced, Kashiwagi commented, “I haven’t recorded it yet, but while doing my best as a soloist, I will also do my best to give back to AKB48.” She continued, “Using my solo activities as an opportunity, I hope people will come to know a new Kashiwagi Yuki.”
Regarding the type of song she wants to sing, Kashiwagi said, “Since Akimoto-san told me, ‘ballads would be good’, I want to sing ballads!! I hope to give my appeal with melodies that other members don’t have.”
