10 June – A promotional video (PV) preview of the NEWS-member-gone-solo Yamashita Tomohisa's upcoming single "Love Chase" has just been released, fuelling the hype for its 4 July release.
According to Tokyo Hive, the preview was aired together with making-of footage. In the PV, Yamashita is shown as four different types of men who tries to win the heart of a girl. One is a gentleman in a trench coat, another is a gangster with a red hooded jacket, while the third is an affable Yamashita in a sweater, and the last an average-looking Yamashita in a white shirt.
"Love Chase" was produced by Japanese pop-rock band MONKEY MAJIK and is currently being used as the ending theme for Fuji TV's anime series, 'Toriko'.
Yamashita's last release was back in February 2012, titled "I, Texas". This will be his second single since leaving NEWS.
