So glad we'll be getting 12 songs in total instead of 10!! Can't wait for the new songs, the titles are very interesting this time!

But if you managed to download the footages when Hulu Japan streamed them then at least you have something to fall back on in case avex did not make that happen

Kuu & other artistes will be taking part in Kishidan's tribute album that will be released on 30th March

No word for now which Kishidan song Kuu will cover

I wonder what's the strategy with the early release.

I think releasing all the songs from heart digitally a month before the album's physical release would further impact CD sales

Kuu should have done what KAT-TUN did last year when they released Roar which was marketed to celebrate their 15th anniversary

1 of the songs Flashback was not made available in any of the 8 versions of Roar , you only can get it digitally

And that indirectly led to their best 1st week sales for a single since 2010

That said I do not know if such a marketing tactic would work for Kuu

^ Sorry, but I think I didnt get it? How could a song only available for streaming boost physical sales? To me sounds like the sales were boosted by eight versions of a CD rather than that but I dont really know them nor their numbers

Kumi did something similar to Hikki's BAD MODE btw, the album is up for streaming since last week but it won't come out physically in a month. I guess that at this point in Kumi's career, people who buy her albums will buy them regardless of digital releases. Then, probably, their strategy might be:
- Hardcore fans will buy it regardless of the early streaming release
- Casual fans will have a month to have a moment of"oh Kuu released something new and it's nice, I think I'll buy it" and then proceed to pre-ordering it
- People who are not fans but still will listen to her wouldnt buy it either way so it makes no difference to sales

tldr; I think they wanna use the digital release as an early promotion strategy focused on casual fans to boost pre-orders

Sorry I should not have used KAT-TUN as an example

Out of 8 versions of Roar , only 6 of them were counted towards Oricon

Instead I feel that instead of releasing the entire heart album digitally a month before its physical release , avex should hold back in not releasing everything digitally , maybe leave out a song or 2 ?

If not I wouldn't have any incentive to buy the physical album , other than for the DVD/Blu-ray footages & the CD booklet

Then again I don't know , others would see this differently from me

^ That's probably why we didnt get a CD Only version this time btw. Probably it already didnt sell as much as other versions, and nowadays with streaming services it's completely pointless unless for collectors which are probably very few and not profittable enough. I don't think it'll be that bad for Kuu at this point, but we will have to wait a bit to find out if they did it right lol
