'Miles Away', a new track from Madonna's upcoming 'Hard Candy' album will be used as the theme song of Fuji TV's 'Change'.

Madonna is lending one of the tracks from her upcoming album, "Hard Candy", as the theme song of a Japanese drama series. Nobuhiro Nagai, the Corporate Strategy Division head of Fuji Television announced that the song "Miles Away" has been licensed as the tune for TV drama "Change" starring local heartthrob, Takuya Kimura.

"The program has been completely produced in-house and we are very glad to have Madonna involved in the project," Nagai said on Friday, March 21. He also said that Madonna has been impressed on the story line that sees Kimura's character being a small town elementary school teacher who is suddenly propelled into the position of prime minister of Japan.

The series is scheduled to air in April, the same month Madonna will release the album on date 29. "Miles Away" consequently will be the first song from Madonna to be licensed to a Japanese TV series. There is however no comment from Nagai regarding the possibility of Madonna promoting the series in Japan.

Madonna at one point has met Kimura when she visited Japan in 2005 to guest star on his "SMAPxSMAP" variety show. Kimura who is part of the popular Japanese boyband SMAP will star "Change" alongside Eri Fukatsu, Akira Terao and Rosa Kato.
