Matsutoya Yumi to sing the theme song of FujiTV Autumn 2016 drama "Chef ~ Mitsuboshi no Kyuushoku ~"
Matsutoya Yumi will be singing the theme song of FujiTV Autumn 2016 drama "Chef ~ Mitsuboshi no Kyuushoku" starring Amami Yuki which begins its run from October in the Thursdays 10pm timeslot. The song titled "Smile for me" was specially writen for the drama and will be included in her album "Uchuu Toshokan" due to be released on 2 November. This is Matsutoya's first drama song in 15 years since 2001's "Mukodono" which featured her song "7TRUTHS 7LIES ~ Virgin Road no Kanata de" as the theme. In order to fit in with the theme of how a woman lives in the current era, the song's message is less about being aggressive, more about being accommodating as well as how she is strong enough to seize the moment. With the power of a "handsome woman" like Amami, Matsutoya hopes that the song will bring courage to those who hear it and look upon your relationships with the people you treasure with newfound gentleness.
