The official YouTube channel for One Piece unveiled the teaser MV for Uta’s sixth song ‘Where The Wind Blows’ (Kaze no Yukue) on Aug 3, 2022. The song is sung by Uta’s singing cast Ado and composed by Motohiro Hata.
The MV for ‘Where The Wind Blows’ was produced by Toei Animation.
Composer Hata said that he created the song with the image of Uta’s pain and her determination to move forward with life.
“I started working on the song because I wanted to create a song that everyone could listen to as an ‘Uta’s song’ rather than a ‘song written by someone else’. I wrote the song with the image of Uta’s pain, conflict, and still trying to move forward,” Hatta commented.
He further added, “At the end of the recording process, Ado’s rich singing voice was added, and I felt that ‘Kaze no Yukue’ was completed as Uta’s song. I think it’s a song that was born when I met the world of “ONE PIECE”, so I hope you enjoy it.”
The full MV for the song will release on Ado’s YouTube channel on Aug 24, 2022.
Additionally, One Piece‘s YouTube channel is also streaming a short episode linked to song, titled Uta Diary #6.
