It appears to be a head shot of her leaning against a brick wall.

According to the updated announcement post, the track list also appears to be finalized:

  1. Omoide ni Nare / 思い出になれ (“Become a Memory”)
  2. 愛という宝物(2016 cross fm GREEN campaign song) (“A Treasure Called Love”)
  3. Chiisa na Ari / 小さなアリ(Live ver.)(“Small Ant”)

The newly-revealed song, “Chiisa na Ari”, is the “secret song” that was listed for one of her recent concert tours. According to Popscene[jp], it is one of her indies songs and the recording is from one of her recent hikigatari tours. Further research reveals that this was the 40th song played during the 2007 Oku Hanako Day[jp] event. Taking a look at nouburin28’s blog post[jp] that lists the keys for her songs, it is likely in the key of D, and the note says that the first performance of this song was on June 25, 1999.

  2. This is new, I haven’t really been paying attention to any releases lately. Don’t think I’m going to pick this one up.

    • Posting under a new name, are we? 😛
      With her more recent releases, I wouldn’t blame you if you wanted to have a preview of the songs first before you decide to buy. I do think this will be an interesting release, though, even if for nothing else but the indies song.

      • Now I remember my old name, I forgot it before haha. In any case I’ll probably wait for it to be released first and give it a few listens before I consider picking it up.

  3. This single’s title is so long that I’ll probably sometimes refer to it as “OmoAi”, which is how I think the Japanese would abbreviate it.
