|Koda Kumi singles chronology|
The single became her third to be released as both CD and CD+DVD. It was the end theme of ANB's television program Uchimura Produce (内村プロデュース / Uchimura PURODYUUSI). The b-side, Through the Sky, was the end theme of Nippon TV's informational program The Sunday (THE・サンデー) through the month of January.
The music video released on the single differed from the music video released on the corresponding album, secret, which contained an "album version" that held different scenes. The "single version" was, however, placed on her first compilation album, Best ~first things~.
The music video for hands carried a theme of a woman trying to cope with her depression brought on by being in the spotlight and having everyone focused on her.
An alternate version to the video was placed on the corresponding album, secret. This would make it the first time she released an "alternate version" of a music video. The "album version" featured different scenes, but still kept the camera close for a more intimate feeling.
