The compilation will feature a new song featuring Maaya, and the first press edition will have a DVD containing a documentary on the track's creation!

Exciting, eh?

Wikipedia has a list of the songs he's done, including those for other artists if you want to look them up on Youtube go there

Hmmm, sounds intereting... but why couldn't this new song be released on a single? I've never heard of this artist before. So unless the other music on this best collection is pretty good, I won't bother buying it just for 1 Maaya song. The limited edition w/ dvd is also way too expensive (7,000 yen). :(

They might iTunes Japan the album, though. Hopefully X^^X

It looks like he's more of a producer than an artist, looking at his information. Hirai Ken, Bonnie Pink, SMAP, Tohoshinki etc. are pretty famous people to have worked with...youtube it to get a better idea of his style, I guess.

interesting...
so.. he's the producer.. and the performer is maaya.. who's the songwriter? tomita himself??
seeing the list, if this man produces the song as he does the songwriting too then he has done so various style 0_
i mean hirai ken and smap are like two different edges.. *urban and dance pop ??*

Yep, flying dog posted the info on her official site. Just noticed CD Japan has both the regular and limited editions up for preorder. They list the regular one as 1 disc, but the LE as 4 discs. I assumed both versions included 3 cds. That probably explains the large difference in price.

Uhg, I'm really tempted to preorder the LE just for the dvd. :P

I browsed around the Tomita Lab web site and noticed a partial track list for this best collection. Here's a direct link.

http://www.rhythmzone.net/tomitalab/release.html

I'm listening to some of the songs on youtube and most of them sound pretty good. Lots of mellow tracks. I'll probably preorder the LE. ;)

I know this is just one song, but if it's gorgeous, then it will be better than her last album, which was a bit boring to me (not enough tracks like Himitsu, Utsukushii Hito or Tegami). I just hope Maaya will sing with her best divine voice !

You can hear how it's shaping up in the second part of the documentary, as that's Maaya la la-ing at the beginning...



EDIT: to be honest the beginning without the strings sounds like more bossa nova-esque fluff in the vein of Yuunagi LOOP but then it starts sounding nicer towards the end of the video...am I being unneccessarily harsh on a demo? XD
