2000年にリリースされた安田寿之1stアルバム「Robo*Brazileira」は、ロボ声とオーセンティックでオリジナルなブラジル音楽を融合させた作品として話題となりファンを得た。20周年を記念しピアノソロで再録中のアルバム「Once a Robot Sings (Piano Solos of Robo*Brazileira)」から、3曲収録の先行シングル。日本におけるブラジル音楽ではカバーが多い中で作曲にも力点を置かれたオリジナル曲をフェルトピアノで演奏しオンマイクで録った、独特の時代感のなさとノスタルジアが感じられる。感染症が広がる春夜、何者も起こさぬよう小さく、しかし親密に弾かれたピアノ曲集。

A single from an upcoming album "Once a Robot Sings" which is a self cover album played by a felt piano of "Robo*Brazileira", Toshiyuki Yasuda's 1st album in 2000. The original album had a strong concept, robot voice and Brazilian music, and put emphasis on COMPOSING contrary to Brazilian music scene in Japan. As the 20th anniversary of it, Yasuda takes piano to spotlight the aspect of songwriting. And it turns into unique timeless and nostalgic feelings. In the deep spring nights with the pandemic of COVID-19, the piano was played so softly and intimately not to wake up whoever good or evil.
