[quote="Megumi"][quote="dillpops"]I've ordered the magazine with Maaya on the cover - it's such a rare occurance that it needed to be done!

Where ? I'm too sick to search by myself today ):[/quote]

A book shop in London ^^;; sorry!

In the TV Bros. article Maaya's written a little about some of her songs which she thinks can counsel readers who are going through a rough time. Under the 'everywhere' description Maaya says she composed 'everywhere' while she was traveling Europe while using a 'feeling of complete well-being' as the theme.

I'm not going to listen to the previews/watch the preview as I've pre-ordered something which such little new material I'd prefer to keep something as a surprise XD

This is the first song she's written the lyrics for and composed from sratch so hopefully it'll be a good starting point for Maaya's career in her 30's.

Interesting interview posted up at Yorimo (sorry, Japanese only) but she comments on writing 'everywhere' , her relationship with Yoko Kanno and her relationship to concerts amongst other things.

It seems we have a very old dog in Rome to thank for 'everywhere'. There are also some pretty pictures of Maaya which we haven't seen before ^^

I can't wait for the full release of the PV.
I haven't seen the previews yet, but just looking at those captures, I'm already liking the settings :D Her grown bangs certainly gives her an older look.

And thanks dillpops for sharing the link!

I think I'm going to love the song.. I got goose bumps from teh preview...
I think I like better her slow songs, so this is heaven for me, just thinking she even wrote the music :)

Yay for no Flash and images I can edit!

Looks like the special site will be updated over the next few weeks -- the HTML source has commented-out links for liner notes (probably like the "We Are Kazeyomi!" page), some kind of promotion campaign, a blog, a radio feature, and a special section.

Also, this page seems to imply that the best album is only the first in a series of things for Maaya's 15th anniversary. Maybe there's something else in the works...?

Maaya will be featured on the cover of two more magazines this month, 'Music Magazine' and 'CD Journal' which is exciting! There's quite a large list on her official site, presumably to big up the concert and album/15th anniversary.
