The much-anticipated new anime series CHAINSAW MAN will premiere with the song "KICK BACK," the latest single from multi-platinum J-Pop singer-songwriter and producer KENSHI YONEZU. The song incorporates arrangements created in conjunction with Daiki Tsuneta of King Gnu, one of the most well-known and successful Japanese bands, and samples from the song "Souda! We're Alive" by J-pop girl group Morning Musume.


On the track, KENSHI YONEZU says, “I wrote this ‘KICK BACK’ for the anime adaptation of CHAINSAW MAN. This is such an honor, as I love the original manga series. Finding the right sounds for this immensely powerful series was challenging, but I created this song by patiently building it up, one piece at a time. I hope you enjoy listening to it. Thank you very much.”
