DIGITAL RELEASE, FROM 22ND OCT!
Fresh from their 11th anniversary celebrations, Japan’s pop-rock record-breakers SCANDAL are set to release their first digital exclusive single KOISURU UNIVERSE. The four-track release is available to pre-order now from iTunes ahead of its release on Sunday 22 October 2017 in Europe courtesy of JPU Records, with the title track available to download immediately.
KOISURU UNIVERSE features two brand new songs and two live recordings taken from SCANDAL’s 11th anniversary show held at Billboard Live Osaka on 21 August 2017. The unusual release date commemorates exactly nine years since SCANDAL signed a major record contract with Epic Records Japan and dropped their debut single DOLL, which is also available on the band’s recently released self-titled double best album, also out in Europe on CD and digital formats courtesy of JPU Records.
Lead track KOISURU UNIVERSE is also currently being tied in with Japanese confectionary brand Bourbon, who have commissioned a special animated short music video using the song which sees SCANDAL’s members transformed into rocking anime characters. The video has been created by director and illustrator Kousuke Sugimoto.
KOISURU UNIVERSE tracklist:
01. KOISURU UNIVERSE
03. Kimi To Yoru To Namida (Billboard Live OSAKA 21/08/2017)
04. Koe (Billboard Live OSAKA 21/08/2017)
(Also available to download via Amazon from 22nd October.)
