"Seasons" is the second solo single by Japanese singer-songwriter Jin Akanishi, released on December 28, 2011.



The single was released in the same month as the extended play Test Drive, and on January 6, 2012 was followed by a sold-out concert at 12,000 seat Yokohama Arena, which was live streamed at the Grammy Museum.


The single was released in two different editions, the regular or standard edition, which includes a special 16-page photo booklet, and a limited edition, which includes a DVD featuring the title track’s music video as well as its making-of video. There are four different cover artworks for the limited edition to match the single’s four seasons theme. Akanishi commented about the title track, "It’s a love song, but it is not only for men and women, or lovers. It’s a song of love toward everything, including family or friends who you cherish".

The single was released on December 28, 2011 by Warner Music Japan, and in the first week of January 2012 it debuted at number one on Oricon weekly singles chart.
