She's been working behind the scenes quite frequently lately, I'd be surprised if that's not the announcement given all the rumors. If she does end up "retiring" I'm sure she'll at least release a best hits/B-sides compilation cash grab, if not a proper final album.

All that smoking was going to catch up to her eventually. On the bright side, I think her raspy vocals make Jinsei sound more interesting. But maybe I'm alone on that. I'm liking the first costume too, it reminds me of a photoshoot from early in her career:

Listening to this on better speakers now...she's actually singing really hard, with a lot of power, and when she does hit a good note her voice is strong and steady. On the other hand, she definitely sounds hoarse, like she's got a sore throat or something. Her voice sounds particularly like it's acting up when she transitions between notes. Whether this is some sort of vocal stress caused by performing, or a temporary illness, I'm not sure. Whatever it is, I don't think it's really indicative of her overall vocal abilities at this point in her career.

My bet is on Toutaikai or Asia tour.
Maybe something to do with Tokyo 2020, I know it's a bit too early.

So, is it the streaming thing? I saw an announcement video on YouTube from the official account.

Amazing.

Who hypes a 20th announcement for something like this?

'hey guys, all the music 99% of already own carry about on your person and stream yourselves is now available OFFICIALLY for that purpose'

YAAAAASSSSSSSSSSSS!!!

Using GIPS in the ad was a nice 'fuck you' to all those who say 'move on h8terz, Ringo isn't doing rock any more'! Even they knew using a nu-jingle to advertise it would be weak! They used a HIT!


GET OVER IT!
