DREAMS COME TRUE
DREAMS COME TRUE consists of bassist, composer, and arranger Masato Nakamura and vocalist, composer, and performer Miwa Yoshida. With their dual identity as the core of the group, they have flexibly sought to create music in a form that is in tune with the times. With the release of "YES AND NO/G" in 2020, they embarked on an innovative sound makeover that foreshadowed a "new DREAMS COME TRUE," and with their latest album, "DOSCO prime," they have adopted a conversion technique of deconstructing and reconstructing their own songs.
In 2021, they released the single "Tsugino seno! De - ON THE GREEN HILL -". This miraculous song was created by adding “Green Hill Zone" written by Masato Nakamura, the main theme song of the game "Sonic the Hedgehog", which has been remembered and loved by people all over the world for 30 years , to a new melody and a poem by Miwa Yoshida. And this "Next Se~no! Up on the Green Hill from Sonic the Hedgehog Green Hill Zone - MASADO and MIWASCO Version -" will be the Japanese-language theme song for the movie "Sonic the Movie: Sonic vs. Knuckles" to be released in 2022.
In addition, "Next Se~no! ON THE GREEN HILL - MASADO & MIWASCO VERSION" has been chosen as the Japanese dubbed end song, delighting not only DREAMS COME TRUE fans but also Sonic fans around the world.
