The good thing about CDJapan alerts is you learn about releases before they even get posted on the official site. Anyways. NEWS will be releasing a new single on May 8th.
“New single release from NEWS features a refreshing song about summertime love. Limited edition includes bonus tracks “Liar” and “Summer Time (Original Karaoke)” plus three-sided, six-page jacket with different jacket artwork from the regular edition. Regular edition includes bonus track “Baby! Be My Baby!” not included on the limited edition, plus two-sided, four-page jacket.”
Limited Edition and Regular Edition are up for ordering at CDJapan; I’m sure links at other places are up now.
To do some speculation, “Summer Time” is probably going to be a cheery pop song – I will inevitably like it despite that it’ll probably sound cheesy. Only two B-sides this time apparently; any ideas? I’m going to pin “Liar” as being the mature, dark sounding song. Somehow, I’m curious how how in the world they’ll make a song called “Baby! Be My Baby!” sound good (maybe they won’t), but we’ll see.
This is pretty nice timing for me coinciding with their CD and DVD clearance sale and 500 yen spring coupon – looks like some goodies are going to be coming in the mail in May. (Also, I’ve just joined their affiliate program – so feel free to make any of your CDJapan purchases through my links or through the banner on the sidebar. 😀 )
