MAN WITH A MISSION have released their brand new single ‘All You Need’. The high-octane rock track pokes fun at excess and greed, which is further demonstrated in the humorous accompanying video.
The song also soundtracks the new Japanese mobile gaming app A.I.M.$〜All You need is money from NHN PlayArts.
Regarding ‘All You Need’ MAN WITH A MISSION vocalist and guitarist Jean-Ken Johnny says, “The song was written for a brand new app game ‘A.I.M.$〜All You need is money’. The game is a comical bandit game about thieves cheating, lying and deceiving to rise in the world full of crimes. I wanted to make the song comical and also cynical at the same time, kind of satirizing the capitalism and our addiction to money. It’s danceable and aggressive, comical and cynical. Hope you guys enjoy it.”
2020 has seen MAN WITH A MISSION release a trilogy of albums, including MAN WITH A “BEST” MISSION, MAN WITH A “REMIX” MISSION and MAN WITH A “B-SIDES & COVERS” MISSION, to commemorate their 10th anniversary. The albums have topped the Japanese album chart and the latter made global history as the first ever B-sides album to top a national album chart.
The band also released the career-spanning documentary MAN WITH A MISSION: THE MOVIE -TRACE THE HISTORY-, which captures their rise from cutting their teeth in small rock clubs to flourishing into the stadia conquering behemoth they are today, which is set to continue for many more years to come.
‘All You Need’ follows the recent release of the new song ‘Telescope’ in October. The band will close 2020 with a brand new song ‘evergreen’, which will be released on December 29th to round up yet another phenomenal year for the band even in the face of adversity.
