Default 2021 Tokyo Jihen Full Album coming

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b6zjFvfJYIQ

A new song ("Dark White" if Google Translate is correct) will be the theme for NHK's "Dream Team". Preview clip is on the website below

Also, wanted to say I thought the "Ao no ID" song for Sakura that they released in November is the best song they put out last year and made me hopeful that we'll get some good stuff in 2021 from TJ.

The new single's official English title is "Whiteout".

A few thoughts: I wonder what the theme for the album will be? I'm also wondering if this will be another compilation studio album that's compiled the several tracks they've released in the last couple months.

So far there's:
  • 赤の同盟 (Aka no Doumei)
  • 名実共に (Meijitsu Tomoni)
  • 玉座の罠 (Gyokuza no Wana)
  • 青のID (Ao no ID)
  • 命の帳 (Inochi no Tobari)
  • 闇なる白 (Yaminaru Shiro)

I doubt the Bsides from akai no doumei will be on the album, but I guess you can never be too sure these days...

Most of the singles seem to have a colour theme going in their song titles, but then they already released "color bar" before so it'll be interesting whether this lends itself to another TV-themed album title.

Now that nobody watches TV anymore TJ is gonna make albums themed around things you can find on youtube
starting with painting tutorials

the next albums will be about:
cats
slimes
cooking tutorials
cover versions (this will be an interesting one!)
new apartment tours/ morning routine
reactions
beauty tutorials

Whiteout is really really good. Sounds like the best bits of Sports, especially that sick instrumental bridge near the 2min mark just before they hit the final chorus. Probably my favourite of their recent run of singles.

The auto-tune on Ringo's vocals kill this song for me, can't stand it. They're best new song for me is Inochi no Tobari

I really don't get the autotune thing... Why?
She sounds amazing, they sound like we remember them.

Even the Uki part.

I have to say I find those singles quite entertaining, considering I've been listening to them in Spotify's weekly release radar playlists (so they always come in the middle of a bunch of songs from other artists) and towards the end of the playlists I still feel TJ's songs are part of the highlights
