• Title: JOKER
  • Artist: Sayaka Yamamoto
  • Runtime: 4:31   Language: Japanese
  • Date: September 24, 2017

"JOKER" is part of Sayaka Yamamoto's upcoming album, "identity", which comes out on October 4th. "JOKER" is about how when you fall in love with the right person, just hearing them laugh can be more healing than any medicine. Just as their smiles heal you, you hope that you may help to heal them as well. The title of the song is a small play on words -- two of the lines of the lyrics feature the word "jouka" (purification), which sounds just like the English pronunciation of the word "joker." Sayaka Yamamoto composed the song and participated in writing the lyrics with Junji Ishiwatari.

The MV for "JOKER" features two separate Sayakas, very differently dressed, walking with purpose towards one another down a long table. At first it is unclear why both Sayakas are so small, but the video's conclusion reveals the answer. In keeping with the album's title and imagery, perhaps these two Sayakas represent two essential pieces of Sayaka Yamamoto's psyche.

Sayaka's LIVE TOUR 2017 ~identity~ begins in October 2017, and continues until late November. The tour features stops in a variety of areas within Japan.
