See-Saw「Anna ni Issho Datta no ni ~ReTracks」 Released!!!

See-Saw's most famous song「Anna ni Issho Datta no ni」, the first Ending Theme of Gundam SEED, was announced to be re-released in an anime single 「Anna ni Issho Datta no ni ~ReTracks」which will be the re-arrangement of the original song and is going to be used as the Ending Theme for Gundam SEED HD Remaster.

The anime single will also include a re-arranged version of  「Shizuka na Yoru ni」sung by Lacus Clyne (Rie Tanaka).

Here's the cover of the anime single:

Kira's is soooper moe heheheh.

Here's the tracklists:
1. Anna ni Issho Datta no ni ~ReTracks
2. Shizuka na Yoru ni ~ReTracks
3. Anna ni Issho Datta no ni ~ReTracks [Original Karaoke]
4. Shizuka na Yoru ni ~ReTracks  [Original Karaoke] 

It should be noted here that Yuki Kajiura re-arranged the two songs. The original  「Shizuka na Yoru ni」  had another arranger.

The differences and similarities between the original versions and the re-arranged versions:
M1.  Anna ni Issho Datta no ni ~ReTracks 
     First, there's the inclusion of a violin solo at the start of the song before the bursting of the piano plus the violin. Second, is the heavy use of violin from the start to the end which IMHO is a very very good change. oh! I'm quite disappointed that the vocals didn't change in that Kajiura re-used Chiaki's vocals from the original. So much for a See-Saw reunion hehehe.
M2. Shizuka na Yoru ni ~ReTracks
     There's also a heavy use of violin in this song. The vocals didn't change as well. 

The release of this single gave me hope for the re-release of other Yuki Kajiura songs like See-Saw's  「Kimi wa Boku ni Niteiru」 , FictionJunction YUUKA's  「akatsuki no kuruma」 and  「Honoo no Tobira」, Mika Arisaka's 「Life Goes On」 ,  Houko Kouwashima's 「Shinkai no Kodoku」, and Rie Tanaka's 「Mizu no Akashi」and 「Fields of Hope」.
