"She sang A Song for xx (A BALLADS ver.) instead
http://www.bilibili.com/video/av8123606"
That's the one I was thinking of then. Strained and pitchy unlike Haru yo, koi.

New avex releases are not put up on amazon Japan until they were released (or only some few copies) for a while already.
Idk why, but maybe because avex doesn't want that discount amazon gives for their new stuff? The contract changed?
Idk, but it's not only Ayu, it's avex' artist in general.

it was in stock on weekend, maybe the initial shippment is already sold out. CDJ also jumped from "deliver on release day" to "deliver 1-4 days after release"

In general they do, but Japan post still isn’t delivering airmail parcels to North America, so our only options are surface 60 days (I think that’s ship) or DHL, which has been very reliable and fast but super expensive To get DHL you have to send tenso a formal request for a DHL quote through their contact us page (it’s one of the options on that page). Hopefully airmail (EMS) will be available by time of release but I’m not expecting it to happen

Thank you! I will wait before pre-ordering and use DHL with amazon if possible.

recently i watched Secret tour again, and now i only realise, the intro before 'M' performance is the intro from 'M' from A BALLADS 1. she really like to put mixes by HΛL on stage, such as ever free, appears, etc.

just wonder in future she will do something like that again or not...

HΛL + DAI + ayu = golden triangle.

^Thanks! Already sounds so goooood! I hope it'll be available on Spotify before the release of A BALLADS II so I can binge listen knowing it'll show in the numbers!

Her voice is slightly too nasal at first I feel but the arrangement is GORGEOUS! I cannot wait to have a HQ version!
