**********
A very short Youtube trailer of the new Code Geass 4th episode unveiled a new song entitled アルコ (Aruko):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hxUt1XlHkXc

Maaya's official website describes the song as a magnificent dramatic ballad deeply related to the anime story.
http://www.jvcmusic.co.jp/maaya/news/index.html#link00

To be honest, the video is so short and there are voices and sound effects so I can barely hear the song, it's impossible to tell if it's gonna be great or not... And there's no release date at all so far, the movie went out today in Japanese theaters and it seems it's the only way to listen to the song so far...

But that's not all!

Maaya's official website posted this today at the end of the new song announcement:
"坂本真綾の20周年記念プロジェクトも近く新たな動きが…。ご期待ください!"
"The Maaya Sakamoto 20th anniversary project is going to have something new moving very soon... Get ready!"

A new album? The Saitama live release? A new event..? I'm so ready and I can't wait! ^^

So happy of this news!!!
Let's see if the label adds some secret tracks (if this is released on a CDS) such as an acoustic piano version of "More than Words! :D

Such version would be great but I don't see any reason they would do that...

By the way, I don't like their marketing operation at all: if you want to listen to the song, you have to go and see the movie...

Still hoping for someone to record it and post it somewhere... Or maybe at the next Vitamin M?

"Hajimari no Umi" had "Okaerinasai" as bonus track.. I thought if this was going to be released on CDS.. would be appropiate because they are related songs... but well.. That's not going to happen..

and IMHO Okaerinasai is the real single, Hajimari is really forgetable (and I have forget about it until I read this and realize this was not a new track :) )

Only 8 songs and so much singles in it... we are waiting for new stuff !!

Yeah, some people must have missed this sentence which states a total of 15 tracks planned...

"他、全15曲を収録予定"

I would be really sad if the new album was 8 tracks, and only 1 of them being a new song. Well I guess the song from Tamayura anime is technically new since it has never been release on cd before (only digital download). Anyways, flying dog should be announcing the other tracks in the near future.

I'm creating a new thread for the lives and cleaning this one to make it about the album!

I'm also hoping they will not announce already released songs (like Mada Ugoku or Tamotsu Mono), but if it's 8 new tracks (Yoko Kanno's song is a new one right), it would be great. However somehow I have some doubts... (Better having doubts and be happily surprised than the contrary right?)

They already announced the single songs so I'd be surprised if the unannounced songs would contain songs from singles. Well I ordered it already so whatever I guess :D

Yyrkoon you are right in that it's better to be a pessimist so you never get disappointed. But what would life be then without hopes and dreams? :) Rather sad I think :D In April one of my dreams came true when I got to see Maaya live and now I have a new dream. To see her again! :D

Scoop, I say this but actually I'm secretly hoping for a Kanno-Maaya album someday :P

And in this new album I'm hoping for more Kanno songs... If they write a new song why not writing a few more at the same time right? :D
