In Taiwanese, Elena sounds similar to "lover ah~"
But yeah! That's why I really love the song because it's just so folkish!

And yeah! You hear the Chinese flute there. I love the addition of the erhu. It sounds so classic.
And I love the message. He goes on a journey for the butterfly, but wakes up to find it was only a dream...and that the butterfly was within him all this time

I love this band so much! They really put a lot of work into their music!
You should check this MV of theirs as well!
I still tear up when I watch it now.

Thanks for this. They seem to use their creative part a lot in their pvs..I really like this. But I must say that I felt so sad especially when I saw the part with that poor old man and that sweet little child,reminding me of our reality. Also the last part with "My dream" was a really nice touch to the pv and the ending piano is kind of bittersweet.

Thanks for the info Linoa62. So Jay Chou's Opus 12 total sales are 103,000 including 2012 sales. Not bad at all considering how weak Taiwan's sales are. But Rainie Yang only 32k....this album deserves more, it's a really good album. Cheer Chen's album sold quite well also....and good to see Jolin's MUSE in top 20 even if it was released long ago!

edit: I also contributed on two albums : Jay Chou's Opus 12 and Rainie Yang's Angel Wings!! Can't wait for my items to arrive!!

A-Mei's new album got an early release because of an accidental leak yesterday. The original release date was July 17th. It's called Faces of Paranoia and you can listen to it here:

"an accidental leak"
I was wondering why it is available for download on chinese forums, but album is not listed on YesAsia for buying.
Cover is awesome, but I expected a little bit more from this album. I am curious when she is gonna release another AMIT album.

China Mobile made it available for download by mistake... It spread everywhere in the following hours :/ That's why they decided to release it on July 2nd instead of July 17th :/

Her next A-Mit album is supposed to be released at the end of the year if I remember well!

You know that Jolin has her own thread here, right? XD

For those who didn't know, this song is available on Pepsi's compilation Beats of the Beautiful Game (released worldwide on June 6th physically and digitally) Warner is a little late and has uploaded a lyric video only today.
It's a cover of Now Is The Time by Wally Lopez.

This song of course won't be on her upcoming album.

oh, thanks for the info. I did not know that!
Wonder what consequences for Chine Mobile will be ...
I just realized that physical release has a slightly different track order than leaked version. Also one track is missing in tracklist.

They said thay they might sue China Mobile... I wonder if they will.

Are you sure? Both physical and digital version have the same tracklist?

A-Mei said that this song wouldn't be in her album, and it's not in the official physical/digital release (like you said).
Actually 星火燎原 was for a Chinese TV show and only got a digital single release in China.
I read nothing about a hidden track in the album, so the one who uploaded the album must have added it as a "bonus track" I guess lol
This tracklist has a different order because it was the order in which China Mobile leaked the songs in the first place if I remember well. Even now they're still not in the right order on their site lol

So there's really another A-Mit album coming this year?
Wohoo!
Currently listening to Faces of Paranoia. It's sadly pretty ballad heavy in the first part.

It seems that she kept the pattern of her previous album: one part ballads, one part more uptempo.
But the more I listen to this album, the more I love it ♥ Her voice is so beautiful in the ballads and the songs are so haunting!

And yes, she hopes to be able to release the A-Mit album at the end of the year!

If any of you want any info about another C-Pop artist don't hesitate lol
