Superfly Announces 4th Album- Whaaaaaaaaat???
Well, today came as a huge surprise to me. Superfly is currently celebrating her 5th anniversary and just dropped her 3rd live dvd, ‘Shout in the Rainbow!!!’ Without warning she announced her 4th studio album. It’s already titled ‘Force’ and is due to drop September 9th…. that’s right, 5 months from now. It’s rather odd to me this was announced so early, as most Japanese releases are announced much closer to their actual release dates. However, who knows what her label has planned- or maybe the ‘5 month’ wait is attributed to her 5th anniversary. It is pretty peculiar there is only one single so far for this era- Ai wo Kurae, which was released quite a while ago. She’s also tacked on a new song to the limited editions of her Shout in the Rainbow concert dvd. The limited editions come with a bonus cd with the song ‘Sasurai no Tabibito.’ I haven’t been able to find much info on this, but apparently it translates to ‘Wandering Traveler.’ I’m very interested to hear the song and I have a sneaking suspicion it will probably make an appearance on Force. I wouldn’t be surprised in the least, let’s put it that way. Today also marked the opening of her official Facebook page, which I highly recommend you check out. As of now, it looks like Force will come in 4 different editions. Obviously there’s the regular cd edition, then there’s a ‘music edition’ which appears to have 2 cds. I don’t know if the latter is limited or not. Then there’s a limited cd+dvd Lawson edition, which I believe is the company that runs the Japanese sector of HMV. And lastly, there’s a 5th anniversary edition (go figure) which allegedly is the cd+ a special cd + an analog disc (o.O?) + a poster. It’s list price is 5,555 yen- how apropos. I would honestly love to get this edition, and it’s actually a relatively sane price. No Ayumi markup here! I’m very intrigued to see how this will turn out. Stay tuned for more news!
