Who would you like to see GACKT collaborate/duet with?

GACKT has so many acquaintances in the Japanese music industry, it sometimes seems that he literally knows everyone. He’s recorded a duet with Hyde, performed with Lee Hom Wang, and took part in short lived superband SKIN. As great as GACKT’s solo work is, collaborations are always exciting.

  • Amaia

    My dream collaboration would be GACKT x Yuki Kajiura, the woman behind Kalafina, See-Saw, Fiction Junction and many amazing anime/game OSTs https://youtu.be/0R7sas8bWN4

  • Amaia

    My dream collaboration would be GACKT x Yuki Kajiura, the lady behind Kalafina, See-Saw, Fiction Junction and many awesome anime soundtracks https://youtu.be/0R7sas8bWN4

  • Molly

    I agree with Amaia. I think a collab between GACKT and Yuki Kajiura would be amazing!

  • The Bad Wolf

    I would love to see him work with Ronan Harris of VNV Nation, they are a wonderful band but most importantly, Ronan seems like such a nice man.

  • Marina Kovalova

    I`d like him to duet with Kokia.

  • Miyu

    I would like to see him with L’arc en Ciel, Buck-Tick or with Sugizo, playing the violin.

  • YFCzAngel777

    I know this isn’t another Japanese musician… but is it strange of me to want to hear a collab with G and Josh Groban?? And also with Rammstein (though the music styles differ on this one I’m sure something very unique and cool could be created. Plus a friend and I would just really love to see Till Lindemann and G together because they are 2 of our faves~)

  • Japanese post-rock band Mono. Might seem like an odd choice, but when I think about songs like Solitary, Suna no Jyuujika ~Interlude~, freesia~op.2~, or 以心伝心 -Telepathy- I can see the result being interesting. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TmEdJI8A76A

  • GACKT & Atsushi Sakurai from Buck-Tick.
    GACKT & AmyLee from Evanescence.
    I feel their music is kinda similar (though Evanescence is a little abit darker) tbh I wouldn’t really know what to expect.. I just love both of them ^^

  • elizabethg

    GACKT and T.M. Revolution should record a least one single!

  • Ursu Ana Maria

    Hmm…this is a hard one. I can’t think at any specific collaboration, but I guess any would be great.

  • I wish I could see GACKT singing with Kinki Kids a song together some day!

  • Ka-chan | カッちゃん

    GACKT feat. Yuya Matsushita sould be interesting to hear and realy nice to see, too. But the truth is that I’d love to hear G sing a song written by either Yōko Kanno or Hiroyuki Sawano

  • amanita ika

    I’d like to see GACKT has collaboration with Taylor Momsen..she’s a lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist of a hard rock band from New York City: Pretty Reckless..
    I think her voice and her style of music will be fit with GACKT..besides,she’s a sexy blonde..I think GACKT would be happy to meet her 🙂

  • Eli

    I’m tempted to say exist†trace but I can’t really imagine how that would even go. I’m sure GACKT could figure it out though.

  • Neko-chi

    David Bowie , I think it would be really interesting to see what they would come up with together.

  • I like the idea about collaboration with David Bowie, sounds interesting.

  • Anca

    Definitely Kanye West. Because, the way I figure it, there are two possibilities – they either get along like a charm or try to kill each other, and I really need to see which one it is.

  • SINNERS from New Jersey; Nancy and Gackt would sound great together!

  • With Hyde. Not just in the movie, but on the scene. And I’d be in the seventh heaven, if they make some records together.

  • Oni Weiss

    I don’t know… with Tarja =)

  • Sofia3081

    David Bowie, it will be great!

  • Rei leonard

    with Yoshiki and I really want to see him duet with Hyde again

  • Trin Achronism

    oh, Bowie. TT_TT

    Kyo from Dir en grey. they seem to have the same imaginative stylings and it would be awesome.

  • Cibo Kirri

    Metallica i dont know why

  • Leana

    Me, seriously. I enjoy sound design probably even more than I enjoy coming up with music, and I’d love to see what he could do with just a keyboard loaded with my own invented presets.
