As announced, the official YouTube channel for the idol-themed Aikatsu! franchise has posted a three-minute special music video for “Shiny Day,” a brand new song performed by the newly-selected eight members of the unit Aikatsu 8 2020 and Hana, the protagonist of the upcoming new TV series Aikatsu Planet! In addition to their singing voices, the clip features lots of past CG live footage of the idols.
The lyrics of the happy pop tune were written by uRy (Yuri Misumi), while Hidekazu Tanaka served as composer/arranger. Both of the two belong to MONACA, a music creator company that has worked on the music and songs for the Aikatsu! franchise since its launch in 2012.
