Mega Ran – Sumimasen すみません featuring Alfred Banks | Video

Mega Ran made the most of his tour of Japan last year by recording a video for the track Sumimasen on a rainy night in Shibuya.

Featuring guest vocals from Alfred Banks, this new track from Mega Ran is titled ‘Sumimasen’, the English translation helps to set the sentiment for the video’s concept. “The song is called “Sumimasen,” which is a word that loosely translates to “Excuse Me,” which is how Mega and guest Alfred Banks politely push their way through the competition. Nice guys can finish first.”

The video was shot on a rainy night in Shibuya as Mega Ran enjoyed his eighth visit to Japan whilst touring last year. Mega Ran describes the experience as fun – “What better way to immortalize everything I love about this place than in a new music video? Ikuo-san perfectly captured the moment…video games, food and good times.

The video was directed and shot by Ikuo Yamamoto and edited by Geek Tekneek. The song, produced by Lio Maks, will appear on a split vinyl release between Mega Ran and Arizona band Bear Ghost this summer.
