We have been waiting for quite some time for a reveal of the cover art for FLOW’s upcoming “double A-side” CD single featuring “CHA-LA HEAD-CHA-LA” and “HERO ~Song of Hope~”, the main theme and insert song (respectively) for the upcoming film Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods. We knew the first pressing would come with a bonus illustration, and we knew the track listing… but that was it!
The band and Ki/oon Music have revealed not only the cover art for the “Limited Edition First-Pressing Version” (with the Dragon Ball characters) and the “Limited Edition Regular Version” (with the band drawn in Toriyama-style), but also the cover art for another CD that had not actually even been announced yet: the original soundtrack for Battle of Gods!
The Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods Original Soundtrack (KSCL-2109) is due out 27 March 2013 (three days before the film hits theaters) for a pretty standard ¥2,800. The CD will contain the “Soundtrack Version” (presumably short versions) of both FLOW songs, though nothing else is currently listed in terms of musical content, number of tracks, etc.
The CD single (KSCL-2209), as revealed earlier this month, is due out 20 March 2013 for ¥1,350.
Placing all three CDs side by side results in a complete image of Shenlong.
First pressings of both the CD single and the soundtrack will come with a limited edition designed Dragon Ball Heroes card.
