Former MEGADETH guitarist Marty Friedman's official web site has been updated with the following message:
"The special first edition of 'Loudspeaker' [Marty's new solo album] contained one bonus track, a vocal version of 'Static Rain', ending theme of 'Rock Fujiyama'. This edition was limited to the first 10,000 copies, which sold out on the first day of release. After those went, the standard version of 'Loudspeaker' which has an instrumental version of 'Static Rain' was put on sale.
"The lead-off track from 'Louspeaker', 'Elixir' will become the new ending theme for the next season of 'Rock Fujiyama'. A video will be shot for 'Elixir' on July 1.

His weekly show, 'Rock Fujiyama' will feature Andrew W.K. performing with Marty, and NHK's 'Pop Jam' has superstars Ayaka Hirahara and Tomomi Kahala performing with Marty. Nippon Television's 'Uta Sta!' which is Japan's answer to 'American Idol', features Marty on the judges panel."
