Hey, I've just registered here when I saw no replies to such news because I was shocked how could it be ignored! Not until I saw you posted it today... :D
Anyway, I'm very glad Maaya is on such an inspiration streak. Let's hope she'll give us some real materpieces!

I can't wait, I don't think we've ever had two albums in a year?!

P.S welcome to the forum! It's great to see a new face :)

After watching her last concert 'Gift' I have a strong feeling we're all being witnesses to her second birth... I may be assumpting things, but the way I see it, after making her return with her first big concert in a long time - We are Kazeyomi! - she heard some criticism (that concert was good but far from perfect) and worked re-e-ealy hard in preparation to her 30-year birthday concert. Which was one of the most flawless performances I've ever seen in pop music, ever! And I've seen quite a bit of them. I suppose she got tremendous feedback after it. And it gave her great motivation or inspiration, new powers to advance! I think she's in her prime right now. And I'm even more eager to see her new live performance than to hear her new album... :rolleyes:

Wait, if the news are coming from spring 2010, maybe it was referring to the release of You Can't Catch Me? o_O

In that case "next Autumn" is referring to Autumn 2012, isn't it? o_O

No, it's this autumn because the kanji are 'now' and 'autumn' = this autumn ^^VV

Definitely autumn 2011.

Hurraaaay. What does everyone hope she takes on from YCCM? I'd like it if she carries on with songs like 'himitsu' and 'kimi no sei' but I'd like it if the new album had less bossa-nova-esque/slow songs like mizuumi etc.

I wish she collaborated with Yoko Kanno again.

Well both Kazeyomi and YCCM had a Kanno collaboration, so it's not unrealistic to hope for :)

It's weird, it feels like this album is a complete blank canvas. I have no idea what Maaya's planning...I mean, it's not like she's going to come out with a Nakata Yasutaka/Capsule collab or anything unexpected but...I don't know. It just feels like a new beginning. Especially with no singles to give a clue to what the sound might be.

Kazeyomi = Triangler
YCCM = Utsukushii Hito

Both were Yoko Kanno collaborations :blush:

You can't write songs like Yoko Kanno, if you're not Yoko Kanno :D
