X JAPAN – Angel Download MP3 320K/FLAC 24/48/HI-RES
The song “Angel” is by the Japanese rock band X Japan. It was published on July 28, 2023, by Melodee Music, as the group’s first new work since the single “Born to Be Free” in 2015. Yoshiki, the band’s frontman, wrote the song’s melody and lyrics and also took the photo for the single jacket.
Recently, X JAPAN became the center of controversy when Elon Musk announced he was rebranding Japanese Twitter as “X Japan”, causing fans across the globe to respond in support of the band’s trademark and supporting them as the country’s only true “X JAPAN”.
X JAPAN has become legendary among rock fans around the world, causing a stir at Coachella, headlining large venues such as Wembley Arena and Madison Square Garden, and selling out Japan’s 55,000-seat Tokyo Dome a record 18 times.
The band’s most recent single was “Born To Be Free” in 2015, and the highly praised documentary film “We Are X” about the band was released in 30 countries in 2018, garnering accolades at the SXSW and Sundance film festivals.
“Angel” is one of X JAPAN’s most intimate and passionate songs, with music and lyrics by the band’s leader, composer, drummer, and pianist Yoshiki. Melodee Music/Ingrooves/Virgin Music Group distributes “Angel” worldwide.
X JAPAN has sold over 30 million albums, singles, and videos worldwide and performed in front of millions of fans worldwide.
The band disbanded in 1997, in the height of their glory. Yoshiki and vocalist Toshi reconnected in early 2007, and X JAPAN officially reformed later that year.
The band reformed in 2008 with three shows at the Tokyo Dome. X JAPAN made their first appearance at Lollapalooza in Chicago in 2010. Following the festival, X JAPAN performed the largest concert in its history, selling out two consecutive shows at Japan’s Nissan Stadium, which held 140,000 people. The band then embarked on their first North American tour, which sold out across the United States and Canada.
X JAPAN made its Coachella debut in 2018, and the band performed three sold-out shows for 100,000 fans at Makuhari Messe in September 2018.
Yoshiki (drums, keyboard, composer), Toshi (vocals), Pata (guitar), Heath (bass), and Sugizo (violin, guitar) are the current members of X JAPAN.
