She just posted this on twitter, saying "Yeah, the single has been changed. About the reason, after a while I think you will find that you'll be able to think 'Oh! So that's why!!', so please look forward to it."

I think she has something planned for the blossom pv, or something else planned in general! Really looking forward to it.

From Misa-chan:
NEW SINGLE 「MOON / blossom」 set for release 14 July!!

Aiming for the 50th single, the first in a series of 3 consecutive works!
This 48th single is a double A-side featuring the widely-acclaimed famous songs 「MOON」 and 「blossom」!!
Both tracks are the current hot topics and much-welcomed comeback works of the composer for debut song 「poker face」 and famous work 「A Song for ◊◊」, Hoshino Yasuhiko!
「MOON」 has been released as a limited chaku-uta to fanclub members who purchased the album 『Rock'n'Roll Circus』, and the full version has also been sung during live performances. This is one song that everyone has been wanting to be made a single.
「blossom」 is part of the large-scale tie-up promotion with Zespri, with it being the CM song for the 「Gold Kiwi, Green Kiwi」 CM. A number with a catchy tune, characteristic of Mr.Hoshino, this song's melody remains with the listener and brings on a feeling of breeziness associated with the coming season.

Popular songs from album 『Rock'n'Roll Circus』, such as 「Microphone」, 「Don't look back」, 「Last Links」 and 「meaning of Love」 are coupled with the new single as remix versions. Along with a DVD containing the video and making clips of 「MOON」 and 「blossom」, 3 versions of the single are to be released!

★Special first-press item: Serial Number Access Card
◎ Free chaku-uta download of new song in the next series (49th single)
◎ For those who have purchased all 3 48th・49th・50th singles, never-before-seen photos sent to the mobile phone + PC wallpaper

50th シングルに向けて、3作連続リリース第1弾!

デビュー曲「poker face」、名曲「A Song for ◊◊」などを手がけた作曲家・星野靖彦氏を10年ぶりに迎えた超話題作!
「MOON」は、アルバム『Rock'n'Roll Circus』を購入したファンクラブ会員にのみ限定着うた配信され、ライヴでフルコーラスが披露されるや いなや、シングル化の要望が殺到した超話題曲。「blossom」は「ゼスプリ ゴールドキウイ・グリーンキウイCMソング」という超大型タイアップ楽曲で、星野氏によるキャッチーなメロ ディが耳に残るこれからの季節にピッタリの爽やかナンバー。
カップリングには、アルバム『Rock'n'Roll Circus』収録の人気曲「Microphone」「Don't look back」「Last Links」「meaning of Love」のリミックス・ヴァージョンを、DVDには「MOON」「blossom」のビデオ・クリップとメイキング・クリップを収録し、全3形態でリリース!

I'm a bit lost. tour version? is this a replacement of the 4th and cancelled blossom/moon cd+dvd version? it only has 2 tracks? so it's similar to kumi's "playroom" edition singles. hm...

^ It has the live versions of MOON and blossom, if I'm not mistaken (^^) I don't think it's a replacement for b/M CD+DVD though~

They aren't live are they? I thought it was just the same single stripped down.

Also, is there a high quality pic of the cd+dvd cover anywhere?

Ayu has addressed why she hasn't had any television performances for MOON/blossom in twitter!

Quote:
おはもーございます(^O^)/新曲の歌番組出演についての質問が非常に多いため、お答えしたいと思います 。今回は、ハードなツアースケジュールと、連続リリースの新曲レコーディングスケジュールがひしめき合って いる中で、私自身、いつも以上にとにかく喉を守りながらの日々を過ごしております。

その状況のなかで、更に歌番組となると、自分の納得のいく歌を披露出来ないと判断し、テレビ出演は全て控え させて頂く事にしました。残り四本のツアー、その後スタートするエイネ、そして創り続けている新曲達、秋か ら再び始まるツアーFinal days、必ず最高のエンターテイメントとして、

全てを皆様にお届けしますので、ご理解下さいませ。。。ではでは、今日も顔をぐーっと上げて!歩いて行きま しょう(^_−)−☆
Good morning! I am getting sooo many questions about performances on music shows, so I'd like to answer them. This time, while being in a very hard schedule, and with the recording of consecutive new songs, everything is being crowded, and more than before, I am spending my days while protecting my throat.

And because I am in this current state, as far as music programs are concerned, I made the judgement that I wouldn't be able to show or display the songs that I gave consent for, and I took the liberty of holding back on those programs this time.

With the rest of the tour, the start of A-Nation, the continuous recording of new songs, and with the tour finale that starts again in Autumn, without a doubt, I will send you[continued in next twitter. Actually, she talks about great level of entertainment in this one, but because of Japanese grammar, in english you have to talk about sending first.]

A great level of entertainment, so please understand this... with that out of the way, let's raise our heads high today too. Let's go walking!

Thanks Maikaru!


Ayu's finally taking care of herself!! I'm glad she decided not to do shows to conserve her throat and voice in better shape~~

Oh, I see... I think she's playing on the "safe" side that she's not doing TV performances because she's too busy with the AT2010 and the upcoming a-nation...

I hope she gets better soon!

The covers from teh special version are the best it is just georgus.
And i think it is good she takes care about her voice, so recording will be better, and so she sing better at live. I just hope she will do tv shows for her coming singles.
