Square Enix teams with Kyosuke Himuro for Final Fantasy VII Advent Children Complete end theme
Popular singer reprises role for Blu-ray release through tie-up song with Gerard Way.
Square Enix announced today that it will be using Kyosuke Himuro and Gerard Way's "Safe and Sound" as the ending theme song for Final Fantasy VII Advent Children Complete. The Blu-ray re-release of the 2005 Final Fantasy VII follow up CG flick will be released domestically on April 16.
Safe and Sound is a collaboration between the two artists, Himuro a solo performer now in his 20th year on his own, and Way the lead vocalist for My Chemical Romance. According to a statement from Square Enix today, the two worked together on vocals and production in what would be Way's first song away from his band. The song is exclusively in English.
Himuro previously worked with Square Enix on the original 2005 Advent Children release. As that version's ending theme, Square Enix selected "Calling," a song off Himuro's second album. The original Advent Children, Square Enix noted today, went on to sell one million units in Japan and 3.1 million worldwide.
Following Advent Children Complete's release, the theme song will be available for download via iTunes on April 29.
