^Getting the album title + tracklist is one of the most exciting parts of an album release!

^Agreed, I love it! I still remember being so confused by taskebab and a cup of tea ahaha!
I loved the daily lyrics she shared for MIJ too!

We'll see if I manage but I'll try to go in blind this time, and not listen to anything that isn't released as a single. I liked the aeternal gimmick when she shared the work in progress, but I felt almost bored of the song by the time it came out. If there are previews this time, I'll try to stay clear!

Maxi Single is an outdated way to promote a new song. It was a way to promote the song in the CD disc fully (about 69 minutes).

We don't have that limited technology anymore in 2022 digital era.

But yes it was a cool era to have a single with lots of remixes.

Also the length of her hair, colour of her hair, her nails... what she dress. It was always a news topic in the past. Duty cover was iconic. I am... cover was classic. RAINBOW cover was unique. NEXT LEVEL cover was "wtf are you wearing, ayu?"

I don't think anyone would see that as her being desperate (except people who literally use anything to hate on her). Besides, her streaming numbers will not really help with charting higher, so that whole "more songs => more streams => higher chart position" logic doesn't apply. Because what would she be desperate for if streams don't really impact how well Ayu's releases do. And Ayu's personal streaming numbers aside, I'm pretty sure Oricon doesn't give all that much weight to streams.

Although streaming has become bigger in Japan, the market is still very sales-driven. Streaming is growing but physical sales are still much bigger (+ digital sales for singles). With Ayu's career it would be rather silly to say she is looking to increase her streams when that is not the aspect of sales an artist like her would focus on. Remixes would at most mean adding more value to the single while giving fans a little treat.

Whew, wrote a lot more than I had planned, especially since Ayu 99% is never gonna release another maxi single (aka it doesn't matter anyway).
Idk iím from Twitter and whenever an artist releases a bunch of remixes the first thing people will say is that theyíre ďdesperate for streamsĒ (just look at any of the replies on chartdata or popcrave &#128557 which is why Iím still stuck with the whole Billboard-esque mentality. I hope u donít think iím dissing ayu not at all! I would love for her to release a bunch of official remixes and work with some of her old collaborators like Armin van Buuren, System F, Hex Hector, etc. Iím more so addressing people who immediately say someone is ďdesperateĒ for releasing multiple versions of a song which I understand that it does help a song chart better (at least in more stream-driven markets) itís also nice to give fans little gifts and alternate versions (what I do wish people would do is instead of releasing the different versions separately they would bundle them all into one neat little maxi single kinda like what Twice did for The Feels)

Looking forward to the new album I've been burned too many times to have high expectations about the number of new songs lol, but nice to see she's making new songs. I still always love to read her lyrics.

let's not forget.. "EGG" haha.

I mean we all had issues with TROUBLE because it was so hyped up, and then, it was just 5 songs including 2 previously released songs. Considering ayu considers her last "full" album is M(A)DE IN JAPAN (6 years ago), we should expect 1 prelude and 9 songs minimally.

It was the biggest joke or ayu-meme at the time.

Staring into my eyes

I can't nod
Though I know it is adorable

The egg is rolling around at the speed of light
The egg is rolling around at the speed of light
It's cracking, chick comes out
Shock and surprise come to us
We can't continue to eat it in a normal way

All gets broken hearts
In an instant
And we wonder how much eggs we eat
Time and thought for

* The egg is rolling around at the speed to light
The egg is rolling around at the speed to light
It has crossed the border line, and hope and sexy are fighting with each other
We can never return again to the place we used to be

The egg is rolling around at the speed to light
The egg is rolling around at the speed to light

This would all make sense if Ayu had a newly released hit which was massively streamed which she does not ��

Guess not. Haru yo, Koi probably will be featured only at A BALLADS 2, so Ohia no Ki is the only one ballad present at the album so far. Besides that, all the songs sound very cohesive (electronic and rock, with some aggresiveness), they are all going to a similar direction and vibe. Even the possible bonus track (One Night Carnival) is going the same route.
