New album 'Love songs' & Ayu-produced single 'Dream ON' 12/22 [IV]

Tracklist information
Spoiler:
- 8 new songs are planned for the album (though they left one out it seems since the total amount of songs is 15 and they have 6 at the moment with all A-sides... 8 + 6 =/= 15.)
- 3 new PVs, one for Last angel and two for new album tracks
- microSD+USB+DVD+photobook edition is limited
- microSD's audio files are made to be played on Japanese cellphones only at the moment according to CDJapan. (the video clips as well) (http://www.sdcard.org/consumers/faq/
(See the SDaudio section.)

Quote:
Can you save data in different formats such as audio, video, still pictures and documents on a single SD card?
Yes, you can save data in different formats as long as the card has sufficient memory capacity. However, to play or transfer the data you will need equipment that is compatible with the appropriate data format such as SD-Audio, SD-Video and SD Document.
- .wav files on USB are to be approximately 278 times better quality than the ones on the CD, likely to be digital masters of the songs, also includes regular .aiff files
- microSD+USB+DVD+photobook edition will be housed in a 3 fold LP-sized packaging like the following image but LP-sized instead of CD-sized.

'アナログLPサイズの3つ折りパッケージにmicroSDとUSB、DVD、フォトブック、歌詞ブックレ ッ トが全て同梱されています。'

PV directors
Spoiler:
Singles' PVs:
MOON - Hideaki Sunaga
blossom (director's cut) - Takahide Ishii
crossroad - Masashi Muto
Virgin Road - Masashi Muto
Sweet Season - Luis Hernandez

Masashi Muto was seen in Los Angeles via Luis Hernandez's Twitter directing PVs for tracks on Love songs. One seemed to involve the male model from Virgin Road with the other involving a plane crash and SWAT team. Perhaps they are one in the same? (See the photos at Luis' Twitpic: http://twitpic.com/photos/ishiiluis)

this PV they're filming. We've seen so many pieces of the set. Maybe they're not all for one PV, but... it seems to be HUGE! Besides, the filming takes a long time, usually it's just a few days.. I hope we'll get something special =)

This all looks so interesting, I'm actually pretty excited to see how the PV(s) turn out!

I've got high hopes for Love Songs, despite that mediocre name

Spoiler:
We had such a nice time. We started dating in t2m PV, took it slow you know, let our love grow. Then it got really serious in 2008. Then after AT2009 we moved in together. It was lovely. Then on AT2010 he asked me to marry him. He was such a sweet. And Ayu gave us our blessings. She was also such a sweet. Now me and Maro are such a sweets together. Aaaw, how time flies.

The album will be airing on all Tokio sex-shops on december 3rd to promote the sales before the release. Ayu stated that "sex-shop buyers are very potential for an artist like me". She also declared that will be touring early december singing her two promotional songs for the new album on big shopping centers like Carrefour and Ikea. She declared on her Twitter: "I'm very excited for that since I'm always singing on big stadiums and arenas. I want to try something new, so let's sing between apples and tables!!"

Sex-shops? Ayu?
You find the strangest things on Wikipedia.

Learn how to spell Tokyo, morons.

It is when you're trying to spell Tokyo as Tokio. Get over yourself.

Haha, is that piece of crap written by a Finn? Since our actual spelling for Tokyo is "Tokio" : P

I just find it funny that a person who posts an article on the English Wiki wouldn't spell the words correctly.
And besides...
If you're making a claim to know the truth, at least make it believable.
