The single is released by Asahi Music.
«Growing up in the 80s and 90s Pet Shop Boys influenced all our lives. Songs like ‘It’s a sin’ or ‘Go West’ defined a whole generation. When Asahi Music proposed me to sing this song, I couldn’t believe my luck, share Misha. We are promoting the song and the listeners’ feedback has been very positive».
