Sky is one of the singles in Taichi Mukai’s album ‘BLUE’ releasing on the 29th of November. The song narrates the journey of an aspiring artist, ensuring us that even if we encounter difficulties when seeking our dreams, we can bear in mind that we are not alone and that ‘everything’s going to be alright’.

The lyrics, written by Taichi Mukai together with SALU and Kotaro Abe, give us peace of mind with rich imagery of the natural world. Our emotions make us laugh or cry like the weather can be sunny or otherwise, but we know that the rain is eventually going to stop. The inevitability of the passage of time assures us that tomorrow is going to come, and the vastness of the world offers us countless opportunities.

The visuals further reinforce this idea, with SALU portraying the future of the aspiring artist acted by Taichi Mukai. He composes music on his notepad during breaks at work, his smile brighter than the sunlight that illuminates his face, complemented by the filter that evokes a feeling of nostalgia. Tension builds as the film fades seamlessly into a rainy night with a despondent figure walking, representing the obstacles the young artist would come to face in the future. Although the notepad, a symbol of his hope, is shown soaked with rain water, he wants to tell his old self that ‘everything’s going to be alright’.

Although people sternly tell us to keep on going when we are discouraged, we can always seek solace in this song, knowing that we can take a step back and reflect on ourselves. Taichi Mukai will be going on his first tour, ‘BLUE’, in Tokyo and Osaka in January 2018.
