"World Apart" (ワールドアパート, Wārudo Apāto) is a song by Japanese rock band Asian Kung-Fu Generation. It was released as the second single of their third studio album, Fanclub, on February 15, 2006.[1] The song is unique for a number of reasons. Not only was it the first single AKG released following their ten-year anniversary, it also became their very first number-one single, debuting at the top of the Oricon charts. The song's b-side, "Uso to Wonderland," was also the first recording in which Kensuke Kita held the position of lead singer.

Music video[edit]

The music video for "World Apart" was directed by Nobuyuki Matsukawa, with planning by Atsushi Masachika and Satoshi Iwashita.[2]
