Going by the sales of Moon (which has 4 new songs), I don't think we can dismiss the possibility so easily...

That's the case with most Japanese artists (even everyone else's favorite pop maestro/wunderkind/insert hyperfanatic label here Utada Hikaru), and I don't think that's necessarily a bad thing. Japanese pop music is very much a singles industry, unlike in the West. That's why the singles come out before the album.
