Background

"Flying Easy Loving Crazy" is the second in a series of collaborative singles released by Kubota.[3] The song, which features guest vocals by Japanese singer Misia, whom Kubota has worked with in the past on the album Singer for Singer (2004), was written, composed and produced by Kubota and arranged by Daisuke Mori. It was used in the promotional campaign of the Cirque du Soleil production Dralion, dubbed Daihatsu Dralion in Japan.[3] Kubota describes "Flying Easy Loving Crazy" as "courage, freedom, and colorfulness bloomed into a love song."[2] In a press release, Misia commented that "during recording, it felt like Kubota's unique rhythm and melodies had opened up the doors to a new world."[2] Kubota and Misia performed the song together twice at Misia's two-date Take Action! benefit concert tour, held at the Yokohama Blitz on May 26-27, 2008.[4]
