The Japanese band FLOW has announced a 20 March 2013 release date for a CD single containing their new version of the classic Dragon Ball Z theme song “CHA-LA HEAD-CHA-LA” which will be used as the main theme for the upcoming movie Battle of Gods. The CD will be a “double A-side” release, which means that both “CHA-LA HEAD-CHA-LA” and another included song — an insert song for the movie — are considered high-enough profile to be promoted and released at the same time.


3/20 — A double A-side single is set to go on sale!!! A recording of “CHA-LA HEAD-CHA-LA”, the main theme for the movie “Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods”, and an insert song!!!

    Wow, the news don’t give you guys a break!, not even on New Year’s eve! 😆
    Awesome news. I expect the song to be around the internet on the next few days, then. Thanks to the internet and its mysterious ways….
    It’ll be interesting to hear Flow’s take on CHA-LA HEAD-CHA-LA…

    Unfortunately (well, fortunately in most cases apart from this), I don’t live in Tokyo, and Tokyo FM’s iOS app doesn’t let you listen unless you’re in their broadcast area. (Then what’s the point?! :evil:)

    It appears that I may be able to listen through FM Osaka… will see what I can do.

    Well, I did end up listening to it, at least. And a rip has made it to the Internet by other hands, so I suppose all’s well that ends well. 🙂
