Japanese pop vocal duo ClariS has released a new song titled “Andante” that is currently being used as the ending theme for the 2024 Spice and Wolf anime series. The song is now available on several music streaming platforms as of April 2, 2024. 

Sony Music Entertainment Japan describes “Andante” as meaning “a walking pace” in musical terms, suggesting a comfortable tempo akin to walking. The contrast in the track expresses the change of emotions, with the steadily growing feelings for another person. 

The full single set will be released on May 8, 2024, which will include the song ‘Andante’ and a few other new songs. 2024 will also mark the 14th anniversary of ClariS’ debut, as they prepare for the release of their 7th studio album titled Iris.

The new Spice and Wolf anime series premiered in Japan on April 1, 2024, with Crunchyroll and Netflix streaming the series worldwide. Crunchyroll describes the synopsis as: 

Lawrence is a traveling merchant selling various goods from a horse-drawn cart. One day, he arrives at a village and meets a beautiful girl with the ears and tail of an animal! Her name is Holo the Wisewolf and she brings bountiful harvests. She wishes to return to her homeland, and Lawrence offers to take her. Now, the once-lonely merchant and the once-lonely wisewolf begin their journey north.
