Makoto Shinkai’s body-switching, coming-of-age romance YOUR NAME. recently became the highest-grossing anime in the world, beating out even Miyazaki’s SPIRITED AWAY in worldwide ticket sales. This April, the film will finally get an English-dubbed theatrical release in the USA. Luckily for us poor non-Japanese speaking anime fans, it’s not just the script getting an English translation, but the movie’s iconic rock soundtrack.

Japanese band RADWIMPS  is debuting English-language versions of the film’s catchy songs to be featured in the dubbed release. The group composed 22 songs for the score in addition to the film’s four theme songs; now, the deluxe version of the soundtrack with an English tracklist is available to buy online, with hard copies going on sale March 10.

Here’s a preview of the new English theme songs from RADWIMPS official Youtube channel:

I gotta say, while the original Japanese tracks are amazing, I love hearing the lyrics in English–they really retain their poetry. This may be a soundtrack I splurge on.

YOUR NAME. will premiere in the US & Canada on April 7.
