Akanishi Jin & Yamada Takayuki to form singing unit "JINTAKA" and release first single in Sep

Akanishi Jin and Yamada Takayuki announced through their social media accounts that they will be forming the singing unit named "JINTAKA" and release their debut single "Choo Choo SHITAIN" on 21 September. In Akanishi's announcement via Instagram and Twitter, he said that he had decided to form the unit with Yamada based on their desires and apologised in advance for any inconvenience caused to anyone due to their brazen move. On the other hand, Yamada mentioned on his Instagram and Facebook that it had taken them only a week to come up with concrete plans to release the single since they thought of this idea and admitted that he was apprehensive at first and had tried to convince himself that this might be a bad idea after all. However, the decision was then made to go ahead and he said that he won't regret it.

The duo's debut single "Choo Choo SHITAIN" is co-written by Akanishi and Yamada and will be a self-produced work which will be released in first-press limited and normal editions. The accompanying DVD will feature the music video of the song and backstage footage of their recording, meetings and shooting of their CD jacket cover in the form of a documentary covering the journey until their debut. There will also be a commemorative event held on 3 October for fans who buy both versions of the CD.
