GLAY offers new song for free
Rock band GLAY has announced that its song “Apologize” will be available for free as a chaku-uta full download, for a limited time next month. Although that strategy has been used before to promote newer artists, it is rare for a top-selling artist like GLAY to take that approach.
GLAY has been performing “Apologize” in their concerts since their nationwide tour last fall, but a recorded version was not available before. The band decided to offer the song for free as an expression of gratitude to their fans. Leader TAKURO said that he also hopes the move will help attract new fans, comparing it to the band’s early days when they handed out free demo tapes at live houses.
