Brand New Morning
Here’s the first Asian pop song we’ve seen addressing the arrival of a new President Trump. It’s from the Japanese idol group Morning Musume and, yes, the song is called “Brand New Morning.”
Different. On the one hand, the lyrics are quite positive and uplifting. But there’s a definite militaristic vibe as well. I don’t think the Japanese are calling out Trump as a Fascist, so much as signaling they are ready to re-arm — perhaps in response to the Chinese launching nuke submarines in the South China Sea.
