Scandal: Honey – new album out in February!
February will see the release of Honey, the eighth album by Japan’s most popular all-girl pop-rock group, Scandal. Honey will drop on the 14th and will feature ten tracks (all composed by the members), including two previous single cuts, Take Me Out, that came out back in 2016, around the time I interviewed the girls, and koisuru Universe, their only new material from last year. The latter had a pretty daring video, that came as a kind of shock and surprise for their fans, and the song was very solid as well, so, let’s hope the album itself will be just like that: full of good tracks and nice surprises!
There will be three different editions: one with only the CD, one that will include a DVD with live footage from their show at Billboard Live Osaka on 2017.08.21 and the third version will come with a special t-shirt, designed by the twins from pop duo AMIAYA… who were also responsible for the funky cover art by the way. And of course, as with the last couple of Scandal albums, there will be a European edition as well, coming out early March on UK’s JPU Records… including an additional booklet with English lyric translations and transliterations! Check the video for koisuru Universe below and then scroll down for the covers, t-shirt promo shots and everything else you need to know about Honey!
