Thanks for the news!

Here is a quick translation of the main points:


This 8th album will contain 8 new musics composed, written and produced by Maaya herself, and a remix of Everywhere and a new arrangement of Chikai.

It will be entitled Singer-Songwriter.

The arrangers are Shin Kôno and Watanabe Sentarô, but I'm not sure if they will arrange the 10 songs or just Everywhere and Chikai.

Shin Konô was involved in the following works with Maaya:
- He arranged: Get No Satisfaction, Colors, Magic Number, Everywhere, Topia and Kimi no Sei (strings arrangement)
- He produced the whole album Driving in the silence
So he's the one who arranged the songs composed by Maaya.

Watanabe Sentarô has done the arrangements of the following songs:
- Himitsu (You can't catch me)
- Kazamidori (Kazeyomi)


There will also be a video documentary about Maaya's composing and writing.

Wow, an album fully composed and written by Maaya. This is the first time she's composed the music and written lyrics for an entire album, right? Based on that, it makes more sense that the title is Singer Song Writer (which is what CD Japan lists). When I first read the title, this Shocking Lemon song came to mind. :D

That'd make a lot of sense for the album to be called Singer Song Writer if Maaya writes, composes and produces the whole album. The information is a bit blur though for now, but it makes sense!

Okay, let's get something straight here. Singer-songwriter is an established phrase in English, as it is in Japanese. There is absolutely no chance at all that the final word is "lighter" -- that is just insane.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Singer_songwriter

It's also not Singer Song Writer because that's not how the phrase is written in English, and the English phrase is the origin of the Japanese one. Singer-Songwriter. That's it.

Usually the phrase means someone who writes all the lyrics for her own songs. It doesn't generally mean the person also composes the entirety of the songs as well.

^ yep

Yoko Kanno! I love when she composes songs for her, or SFP. Her voice just blends in nicely with the chaotic background. Something to look forward to, hm.. the other composer whom made "Moonlight" is also one of my favorite, forgotten the name.

Also open for other new composers, ah.. I can imagine a little right now, listening to them in March..

Thanks for pointing out this, I'm not a native English speaker and I didn't know that term :)
I'll fix my brief translation above.

This new album will be fully composed and written by Maaya, so that's obvious, it's definitely Singer Songwriter ;)
