The official Japanese website for the Detective Conan (Case Closed) movies has announced on Friday that the next movie, April 19's Detective Conan: Full Score of Fear, will have a previously unreleased track by the late singer-songwriter Izumi Sakai as its theme song. Sakai, who is better known under her stage name Zard, wrote the lyrics for "Tsubasa wo Hirogete" for the group Deen in 1993, but she sang a version herself before she passed away last May. Zard had never released this version on CD or performed it live before. Zard performed four songs for the Detective Conan television series, and the fourth song, "Ai wa Kurayami no Naka de," will be released with "Tsubasa wo Hirogete" on a CD single on April 9.
The Detective Conan movie website also posted the second teaser trailer and the actual trailer for the movie. An excerpt of Zard's "Tsubasa wo Hirogete" (and an excerpt of "Amazing Grace" by another singer) can be heard in the trailer. The first teaser is still available.
