W(本物) from this BBS has revealed that Akina will be releasing a new original album on the 21st June (Universal Music), in time for her first concert on the 24th June.
If this is indeed true, it would be the most exciting news because it has been 2 and a half years since「歌姫III～終幕」was released on 6th December 2003. It will also help to quell rumours that the concert name is an indication of that Akina has plans to retire after this. I wouldn’t be surprised if it includes the new single and I wonder if it will be 「Resonancia Part 2」. I love that album so I don’t mind. I just hope it’s not another 「La Alteracion」, which I dislike.
Anyway, any new album is exciting news! With all the drama, and pending new and re-releases, it will help to increase Akina’s exposure and is a great way to start off her 25th Anniversary celebration. Let’s hope it’s only the start of a great year for her, though us, as fans, will have to dig deep into our pockets to support her!
