Notes

"During the summer of 2017, Honda Motor Company partnered with several ad agencies to use covers of ‘Over the Rainbow’ from the Wizard of Oz in different international markets as part of it’s decade-old Power of Dreams campaign. In Europe, a version of the song recorded by indie duo Joy Downer was used to promote several of Honda’s car brands including the Civic and CR-V. Using a track recorded at Sony studios in Tokyo in June during Grace’s first trip to Japan, Honda produced a 2:10-long concept video for the Honda N-Series automobiles showing the vehicles in a variety of recreational settings. Several 30-second edits were produced for Japanese TV with the voiceover tagline “N for Life”. Grace was credited in the video for several seconds with a watermark showing her name and a musical note". (The VanderVault 2019-03-02)

"Over the Rainbow" was released as a single in Japan and as a bonus track on the Japanese version of Just The Beginning.
