TUBE × GACKT “Instead of Goodbye” pre-release on 2/7! Jacket visuals and recorded contents have been released!

TUBE and GACKT’s collaboration song “Sayonara no Kakeri” to be released on February 28th will be distributed in advance on February 7th, and the jacket visual and recording contents have also been officially announced!

This work was created when Maeda and GACKT, who had been close friends for some time, agreed on the idea of “parting with people” during a conversation one day, and hit it off to express it through music.
It became a hot topic when it was first performed at “FNS Kayosai 2023” which was broadcast in December last year.

The coupling song is a collaboration between the two and covers TUBE’s 1988 ballad single “Remember Me”, which is also GACKT’s favorite song.

Pay attention to the jacket visual, which was shot based on the concept created by each other’s images, as well as the music video, which will be released soon!
