Looks like her new single is actually called "Little Girl" and is out on June 23rd.
I wonder if it will contain the "chAngE" or if they will release it as a separate single.

miwa sings for animated film "Colorful"

Singer miwa (20) has been chosen to provide her first songs for a movie. She will sing both the image song and the ending theme for Keiichi Hara's animated film "Colorful," scheduled for theatrical release on August 21.

The image song, "Boku ga Boku de Aru Tame ni," is a cover of a song by Yutaka Ozaki from his 1983 album "Junanasai no Chizu" ("SEVENTEEN'S MAP"). The original was used as the theme of the 1997 drama special "Boku ga Boku de Aru Tame ni" that starred the five members of SMAP.

The ending theme, "Aozora," is a cover of the hit 1989 single by THE BLUE HEARTS.

miwa, who is currently a university student, made her major label debut this past March with the single "don't cry anymore." Her second single, "little girl," was released last month.

PV of her most recent song 441:

miwa 441 PV

Funnily, miwa reminds me somewhat of Sawako-chan from Kimi ni Todoke...must be the hairstyle.

Also i think the B-side of 441 is called chasing hearts and was used as a theme for an FMA movie.
