One of the best ideas for an illustration I’ve ever had is this painting about Spring time and Sakura flowers! First concepted and painted, completed using Photoshop back in 2009, I decided for 2016 I’d make a revision – added some extra touches to it; pinker background, trace of ears (naturally), and put out this new revision for Spring 2016! Looking forward to the new Season!

I can’t wait to hear the english version of “Your Song” because the original japanese had very good meaningful lyrics so I’m eager to see how it’ll translate!

Ready to do it all again living it up will be the SCANDAL Tour 2016 “YELLOW” at various cities in Japan starting in April, and then onto the Asia leg of the tour to Hong Kong and Taiwan in June!

Please support SCANDAL if you enjoy their songs and love what they’re about! Make arrangements to go and see them play live!

One great song that will be on the album is

Sisters” (Lyrics: RINA, Music: MAMI)

Released as a single in September 2015, “Sisters” is described as a “girls rock anthem,” an upbeat dance tune perfect for the live scene, making listeners want to jump and dance along with the beat. “Sisters” has a meaningful positive message in its lyrics, it’s one of encouragement to have your friend’s back, to push them on and move forward with them. I especially like the lyrics “You’re going to be left behind in the summertime if you only let out sighs.” It’s a great song to listen to when you’re feeling down and you can relate with it no matter if you’re a boy or girl!

If there is new information about the album between now to when it is released, I will do my best to update you.
