Girls' band Negoto to sing the theme song for new movie "Tori Girl"

Girls' band Negoto will be singing the theme song for new movie "Tori Girl" starring Tsuchiya Tao which will be shown in cinemas from 1 September. The song will be a cover version of Spitz's hit song "Sora mo toberu hazu" which can also be heard in the movie's trailer.

The movie which is based on the same-titled novel by Nakamura Kou and directed by Hanabusa Tsutomu, talks about a group of university students who put in their all to take part in a Tori Ningen Contest i.e. human-powered flight machines at Lake Biwa. Tsuchiya plays the lead character Toriyama Yukina who made it to a science university after repeating for a year. Upon starting school, she joins the club aiming to take part in the Tori Ningen Contest because she has fallen in love at first sight with a senior Takahashi Kei (Takasugi Mahiro) who is also in the club. While preparing for the contest, she tries to achieve their dream of flying with her beloved and handsome senior and another senior Sakaba Taishi (Mamiya Shotaro) who behaves like a delinquent and is constantly at odds with her.

Negoto has been a fan of Spitz and had done cover versions of the band's songs at their own concerts. Since this year is Negoto's 10th anniversary and Spitz's 30th anniversary, this has allowed them to do another collaboration project through the cover version of "Sora mo toberu hazu". The insert song "ALL RIGHT" will also be sung by Negoto.
