Uyama Hiroto x Hanah Spring has released a popular collaboration song that combines the embracing power of the duo with their sophisticated sound sense!

The Uyama Hiroto x Hanah Spring session, which was posted on Instagram prior to its release, received many reactions and high praise from not only fans but also listeners in Japan and abroad.
Amid growing expectations, a single song by both names will be released as the 7th roph recordings release!

“You Don’t Have To Cry” has a pleasant and cool sound by combining Uyama Hiroto’s flowing piano melody with Hannah Spring’s clear chorus.

Towards the second half, the highlight is a relaxed high-tone voice reminiscent of Minnie Riperton that seems to resonate with the saxophone, and at the end, with an emotional aftertaste, a haunting beat takes the listener back to reality…
It’s a song that makes you feel refreshed and refreshed when you finish listening to it.

The coupling song includes “Making Love By The Ocean” with a dreamy mood. The gentle rhythmic sound of waves slows down the flow of time and invites you into a dreamy state.
The combination of a beautiful melody line, a mist-like chorus, and the floating sound of EWI (electronic saxophone) creates the outline of a song that can only be created by these two, enveloping the listener like a wide ocean. I’ll give it to you.

This work was born out of musicians who share the common environment of living near the sea, crossing over in their sensory realms, and at times blending together as if to let themselves be carried away by the waves.
I want you to experience the feeling of seeing the sea breeze, the sound of waves, the horizon and the wide sky as they blend into your daily life.


Uyama Hiroto x Hanah Springによる、包み込まれるような包容力と二人の粋な音感覚が交わった、注目のコラボ楽曲がリリース! 

リリースに先立ってインスタグラムにて公開されたUyama Hiroto x Hanah Springのセッションは、ファンはもちろん、国内外のリスナーから多くのリアクションと高評価を得た。 
期待が高まる中、両名義によるシングル曲がroph recordingsリリース第7弾として発売決定! 

Uyama Hirotoの奏でる流麗なピアノの旋律に、透明感のあるHanah Springのコーラスが交わることで、心地よい涼感のあるサウンドに仕上がった「You Don’t Have To Cry」。 

後半にかけてはサックスと共鳴するかのような、ミニーリパートンを彷彿させる伸びやかなハイトーンヴォイスがハイライトとなり、ラストはエモーショナルな余韻から、耳に残るビートがリスナーをリアリティへと連れ戻してくれる… 
聴き終わった時に心が洗われたような、清々しい気持ちになれる一曲となっている。 

カップリングにはなドリーミーなムードの「Making Love By The Ocean」を収録。穏やかな波音のようなリズム感が、時の流れを緩め、夢見心地へと誘う。 
美しいメロディライン、ミストのように降り注ぐコーラス、そして浮遊感のあるEWI(電子サックス)の音の組み合わせが、この二人からしか生まれない曲の輪郭を生み出し、広い海のように聴く者を包み込んでくれる。 

海の近くで生活をするという共通の環境を持つミュージシャン同士、感覚領域でクロスオーヴァーしながら、時に波に身をまかせるように混じり合って生まれた今回の作品。 
海風や波音、水平線と広い空、そんな情景が日常に溶け込んでくるような感覚を味わってみて欲しい。
