Cornelius has released a new song, “Change And Vanish.”
It’s the Japanese experimental musician’s first new track since last year when he resigned from his role as a composer for the Tokyo Olympics opening ceremony after incidents of past bullying began circulating online. Cornelius denied those incidents, and a couple months ago he released another statement saying that he would be resuming activities, including performances and new songs.
“Since last summer, I have been reflecting strongly on my past immaturity and constantly thinking about how I should face society from now on,” he wrote. “In the midst of all this, I have been greatly encouraged by the fans who have sent their voices of support and by the people involved who have continued to support me. I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart. In my future musical activities, I will strive to do the best work I can.”
