Popular Japanese singer LiSA is performing the theme song for the Japanese dub of the new Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse film. The theme song is titled “REALiZE,” and has been released ahead of the film’s theatrical premiere in Japan on June 16.
“REALiZE” is LiSA’s first new release in seven months since her 6th album “LANDER” came out in November 2022. The song was specially written for the Japanese dubbed version of Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse. “REALiZE” is a fast-paced rock tune that fully captures LiSA’s heroine energy, mixed by Zakk Cervini, a renowned mix engineer who has collaborated with many international artists.
I am honored to have been entrusted with the Japanese version of the theme song for this movie, in which my beloved Gwen, a strong and cute Spider-Woman, takes center stage. The heroes in this story have embraced great power and taken on great responsibility, transcending time, space, and sometimes even fear itself. I hope that you will enjoy “REALiZE” alongside their exploits on the big screen.LiSA
