New album announced: Haruka Tooku ni Mieteita Kyou / 遥か遠くに見えていた今日

Pony Canyon announced today that Oku Hanako will be releasing a new album on May 17. Its title is Haruka Tooku ni Mieteita Kyou / 遥か遠くに見えていた今日 (“Today When I Could See Far in the Distance”). This will be her ninth album.

The album will have a total of 14 songs. These are the ones announced so far:

The first four of these are the A-sides of her most recent double A-side singles. “Propose” is a new CM song for MAST, which I expect to be distinct from the MAST jingle that she’s already known for. “Rainy Day” is one of her indies songs from 2003. Based on the article, I expect to hear an interesting arrangement, possibly with layered voices, but I really hope it doesn’t turn out like the new arrangement of Tsumiki / 積木.

In addition, the first orders will also have an accompanying DVD with music video clips for Kimi no Hana, Saigo no Kiss, “and others”.

  1. I pre-ordered on CD Japan today. I gambled and chose the cheapest shipping. I look forward to watching the videos on a computer I have set up to read Japan DVD. Maybe someday all of her videos will be on a single Blue Ray.

    Are you able to learn anything interesting on TLGO’s web site? Anything interesting besides knit caps?

What are your thoughts on Oku Hanako?
