That looks more like a perfume ad in a magazine than anything. I'm glad you are talking about the covers cause I don't like kylie minogue, and I dislike what I heard so far from that album. XD (don't kill me)

I wouldn't mind another nude. I want something mysterious, with a hint of thriller. like this. (don't worry, it's not scary) Or I'd at least like it as a photoshoot inside the booklet. The last picture actually kind of reminds me of ayumi. lol

Ayu did the Roman thing for her performance of INSPIRE at AT05 and CDL~Future Classics~ and as much as I love the way she pulls that look off... I don't think it'd mesh well with crossroad at all and I don't think such a specific theme would be good for "L."

roman style you say? Damn I think I kinda failed with my covers XD

um but anyway..speaking about roman, I think this down here would look gorgeous on her, though it might be just an other beauty shot:

Spoiler:











though I would agree with amorphose that to me it's a bit off.....

@Chibinina4: not that sorta thing. more like those ancient roman pillars and such. I'm not quite sure how to describe it in words. I have a different picture in my mind though.

@Picaflor: that reminds me of a freaky ghost movie. Such a thing and it'd scare me every time i looked at it.

Oh, and maybe if shes really running out of ideas the "L" single can just be a cover of all her favorite TV characters. just kidding.

But seriously, i bet constantly coming up with new ideas for singles, albums, live events etc being a singer, group or band must be quite difficult. I have a pretty good imagination and am quite good at things that require it, but I think if I were a singer I'd probably just run out of things sooner or later and get real frustrated followed by lazy and just start making my next single a remix of Moonlight Densetsu or something dumb like that....

Artcika, that is a GORGEOUS photo shoot! I would love to see Ayu do a photoshoot on location like that, but as you said, it's more like a "beauty shot" instead of being in character.

LOL Picaflor, I won't kill you. Speaking of perfume ads, one of the ads I would love to see imitated as an album/single cover is the "Beyond Paradise" campaign by Estee Lauder. It's such a beautiful series in person.

Spoiler:


Or she could do another album/single cover set with one of her dogs, kinda like a throwback to A Song for XX. Estee Lauder did an adorable ad campaign for the "Pleasures" perfume with a woman and her puppy. I know it probably wouldn't work for "crossroad" and "L," but it's a cute concept that she can try in the future anyway.

I do wonder if she uses perfume ads as inspiration for some of her photo shoots. Some of Jennifer Lopez's ads for "Still Perfume" remind me of the "MOON/blossom" cover shoot:

^i dont like how j-lo looks in those ad photos... actually they sorta remind me of the Marylin Monroe thing look Aguilera's doing lately. that first ad with the multi-rainbow thing is neat. Reminds me of that particular Ayu album of same name a little. Just i dont like the look on the person's face in the ad.

Some perfume ads are really cool and it would be cool if ayu got inspired by one to do a single cover.

Speaking of perfume, I always wanted to find that perfume ad that looks really really similar to ayu's Carols cd cover. I remember the background and the swing and the dress looked a whole lot alike. anyone know what I'm talking about?

i'm sure an ayu-hater. haha.

i kind of hope this will be like the & single, where there is a giant stylized letter L. although, L is just not as cool looking as the & sign.

Actually, I hope an L isn't on the cover at all. Just on the OBI or if it is on the cover, just be something that's not too distracting like M/b was with those horrid gradients.

Btw, I just checked CDJ and they've added the posters.

Maybe I'm behind the times and it's been discussed already, but do we know what L stands for? I can't recall any official info, but I'm sure we all have theories.
(In my dreams, it stands for my name. Because after all, it's released on my birthday.)

It's her 50th single. L is the Roman Numeral for the number "50".

Also, did A, M, and H stand for anything? Nope.

There's a theory it could be related to the Roman numeral for 50 which is also L but no, we have no idea what it stands for.

@Picaflor: I think M stood for Maria. A and H are the first letters of her first and last name so I assumed that's what they stood for... XD
