With the current season of Mobile Suit GUNDAM Iron-Blooded Orphans moving into its second half, it’s time for a new ending theme. It was previously announced that YouTuber turned singing star Uru would be providing the new theme, titled “Freesia,” for the late-stage ending. Now you can hear a small snippet of it a little under a week before it goes live on the show.

The new clip from Sony Music betrays a definite tonal change from the heavy guitar and percussion of the current theme, “Shōnen no Hate.” The “Freesia” single will go on sale on February 15.
In addition to the new ending theme, four-member rock band KANA-BOON will be supplying a new opening theme titled “Fighter.”
The new themes will kick in starting with the January 8 episode.
