BENI – Konayuki

1. Konayuki
2. Konayuki instrumental

Konayuki is the twenty-sixth single by Japanese/American singer BENI, released on November 20, 2013. The song is a cover of the Remioromen song of the same name.

Konayuki will appear on COVERS 3 (to be released on December 18, 2013), so ofcourse this is the English version of the song. BENI made the song into a real winter midtempo ballad. I like how the arrangement incorporates both synths to make it a bit poppy, while in the background you clearly hear some chimes and later strings for more ambience. BENI’s vocals are very solid and her belting in the chorus is very controlled and appealing. She made some beautiful new lyrics for this song as well. Can’t wait to hear this again on the album and I really want to know now if the other songs will be as good as this one!
