Prepare yourselves!

According to NBCUniversal, KOTOKO is going to release a new album in June, in total collaboration with I've Sound × Kazuya Takase (there's no info yet on if C.G mix and NAMI will get involved or not).

The concept of this album is "returning to the origin". Sounds very cool! XD

Details will be announced later.

That's cool, it's been over four years since Kuuchuu Puzzle was released. I'm looking forward to the new album. Singing

Thanks for the information. I would love it to include some self-covers.

Super agree! I'd like very much to see a "-2018 version-" of Re-sublimity, agony and Suppuration -core-.

Wow, exciting news! It's been so long since KOTOKO released an album, can't wait for this one! I wonder why it's being released through Universal when all her releases for the last many years have been with Warner (right?). I guess this means songs from her latest singles won't be included.

I wonder what the concept actually means for the album. Self-covers would be nice. But I wouldn't be mad if they went all the way back and did a whole album in the style of hane.

Actually, I was referring to songs that she has written for other artists, like "Sign" by Ray, but a new version of some classic song would be great too.

Usually, the songs are ported from one label to another as it happened with "Loop-the-Loop" and "Restart" in the album "Kuchu Puzzle". However, if it was not confirmed that the songs of this album will be composed only by Kazuya Takase, "TOUGH INTENTION" and "ZoNE-iT" would have been ported as well.

I was actually really interested if KOTOKO is still with Warner or not after being so quiet for the last few years. I bet with the loss of Mami and Ray and the lack of new Artists they signed, Universal was offering her a great Deal to come back to them. Hopefully she stays there and joins I've fully in the near future. I'm extremely excited for this Album!

Small anison labels have a fairly good track record of working together for the common good. Serment was on Mami's Square the Circle album despite the fact that it was orininally released via WHV. If the last two singles are not on the album it will be because this is a new beginning for KOTOKO, not because of petty ownership disputes between record labels.

Finally a new album! I'm so glad it's going to be produced by I've, the only songs I liked on Kuuchuu Puzzle were the ones produced by Kazuya anyways. I know it's hard to happen, but I'd like some songs like Asura or Retrieve again.

I wasn't assuming the singles would be omitted because of ownership disputes but rather because the sudden change in label and the concept and collaboration with I've being advertised seem to imply that this will be a bit more special release. But that doesn't really come across in my previous post, so fair assumption.

Album title is "tears cyclone-廻-" (dunno if mawari or meguru).
She'll also be touring. News here.

A page on NBC Universal shows a bit more info on the album. It seems that the "廻" is read as "Kai".

The release date is June 27th. There will be 12 tracks total, 10 of the tracks are new. "Sign of Suspicion" will be included in it, and KOTOKO will do a self-cover of Ray's song "a-gain".

Interesting. Makes me miss Ray to be honest (who if rumors are to be believed is now working as a maid in a maid cafe in Sapporo).

It'll be really interesting to hear KOTOKO's versions of sign and a-gain. I can't picture either with KOTOKO's voice, but I'm sure they'll be great!

I wonder what the album will sound like as a whole. I kept picturing songs like hitorigoto, Lament, Collective, Retrieve, hane, asura, UZU-MAKI, etc. But a-gain sounds nothing like these. I guess it'll be more like the songs Takase has been creating recently.

It's not sign, but sign of suspicion, already one of her songs Wink

There is going to be a bonus CD included with the album that has another self-cover of a Ray song, which is "sign". Very Happy

I'm interested to hear KOTOKO's self-cover, I wonder what she and Nakazawa will do with it.

The album description on the NBC page and Amazon seems to mention something along the lines of this album being the first half of a two-part work. Can someone with more Japanese proficiency clear up what exactly the description is saying?

There's a preview for the main track, "Kai-Ro-tation" (廻-Ro-tation). KOTOKO's written comment on it showed a "カイ" above "廻", so that's how I got the title.

Wow, I'm surprised they released a preview so early! I can't say I particularly like this song so much, but there'll be a lot of new songs to look forward to. This song will probably grow on me too when listening to the full version.

It was released exactly on her 14th major debut anniversary. Smile

Just to start the hype, today some tweets and an update on her blog suggests that there will be a "devilish song" on this album.  Evil

KOTOKO tweeted today that the recording for all the songs is done now. Pretty exciting.  Very Happy
