Default Hi Izuru Tokoro - New Album - 11/5/2014



http://www.kronekodow.com/gaiko/141105album.html

Billed as her first original album in 5 years.

日出処 - Hi Izuru Tokoro - Land of the Rising Sun

Songs (My title translations are definitely not 100% accurate)
1. 静かなる逆襲 - Shizuka naru Gyakushuu (Quieting counterattack?)
2. 自由へ道連れ - Jiyuu he Michizure
3. 走れゎナンバー - Hashirewa Nanbaa (Running number?)
4. 赤道を越えたら - Sekidou wo Koetara (Crossing the equator?)
5. JL005便で JL005 bin de (On Flight JL005)
6. ちちんぷいぷい - Chichinpuipui (Apparently a "magical incantation" you say to little children when they get hurt to take their minds off of the pain)
7. 今 - Ima
8. いろはにほへと - Irohanihoheto
9. ありきたりな女 - Arikitarina Onna (Ordinary Woman)
10. カーネーション - Carnation
11. 孤独のあかつき(信猫版) - Kodoku no Akatsuki (Honest Cat Version?)
12. NIPPON
13. ありあまる富 - Ariamaru Tomi

So 7 tracks that we've heard before. Looks like at least one of them will be rearranged (Kodoku no Akatsuki). And 6 original tracks.

There will also be 3 versions for sale:
CD - 3240 Yen
First Press CD + DVD - 4212 Yen
First Press CD + Blu-ray - 4968 Yen

The DVD and Blu-ray will have 6 PVS on them:
1. Ariamaru Tomi
2. Carnation
3. Jiyuu he Michizure
4. Irohanihoheto
5. NIPPON
6. Arikitarina Onna

Arikitarina Onna will also be for sale digitally starting on 10/1/14.

Everyone commence grumbling over the lack of new songs!

Wow. Definitely excited about this. Not sure how this album is going to sound with some of the songs on it that we've already heard. Nippon? How is that going to fit in with the album at all next to Carnation?

I love that album cover. Fierce.

Why the Harajuku look? Making fun of Kyary? I doubt it's the album cover though...

I think an article said they were going for the Marilyn Monroe look with the photo. Japanese fans are already calling her マラリンゴ (Mararingo) on Twitter.

Edit: This article makes mention of it (if you can read Japanese):

http://headlines.yahoo.co.jp/hl?a=20...6-spnannex-ent

Edit 2: The song titles are all symmetric, unsurprisingly. The first two and last two tracks are both 6 characters. Tracks 3-6 and 8-11 are 7 Characters, and the middle track is one character, Ima.

Yeeeyyy! Another EP disguised as original album!

At least the cover is cute.

PVs disc is worth price of admission alone. It would cost almost that much if it was a standalone Sexual Healing blu ray, and some of them PVs are amazing.

Waow~

Carnation obviously doesn't fit in, I hope they at least rearrange it, or maybe use the English version or something (but it looks like they probably won't). Also, it's my least favourite of all the songs she's released in the last 5 years so **grumble** but I guess there was no way they were gonna exclude it anyway. I should just be glad that they're including Ariamaru tomi on it.

At any rate - 7 new songs at a shot versus 2 new songs every year for the past few years? That's positively a TREAT!
