Really great news !
It has been too long since the last album, and it was not that good. Like almost 5 years !
Can't wait to listen to the new material :)

I really wished it would be an album composed and written by her, but it seems that the direction goes in collaboration, which it is good too, also there's little more involvement (in writing new songs) than in Follow Me Down. As a side note, journalist & writer Hiroshi Ichikura collaborates with Maaya again, last work together were on the three songs from the single "Shippo no Uta" (c/w "Midori no Hane" & "Yoake no Octave") in 2000 and "Uchuu Hikoushi no Uta" in 2003. I'm glad it's an album not related to anime, but it kinds of annoy me that Kitagawa is again on a new song, every time he collaborates with her a cutesy song comes off.

Maybe I'm asking too much if she comes back with an album composed by her. Composition is not her main point. But lyrics are. I really miss when she wrote almost all the lyrics of her songs just like "Kazeyomi" released 10 years ago. Sure time flies...

Let's just wait for the album to be release first, I guess she had her reasons why she made this new move (or direction).

I was curious on what awesome songs is going to be made with Enon by her side XD

Long time fan of both bands Enon had, since 2015 iinm

Also me: I want a few more song collab with Yumi Uchimura's band.. so more fast pace songs to be added to my song loop, they are my favs
