As we head towards ayu’s 15th Anniversary on 8 April 2013, we’ll be releasing consecutive works on the 8th of the next 5 months!

And for the 1st chapter, we have mini album “LOVE” with 12 tracks, including new works “Song 4 u”, “Melody”, “Missing”, and remixes of big hit “You & Me”!

“Song 4 u” is the theme song for the game “Tales of Xillia 2”, which will be released on 1 November. It was first revealed at “Tokyo Game Show 2012”, held at Makuhari Messe on 23 September, and received with wild approval from the “Tales of” fans. Following the collaboration of “progress” with last year’s “Tales of” series, this song with its majestic worldview and runaway feelings has stoked fans’ anticipation for the new game.

“Melody”, composed by Mr Hoshino Yasuhiko, is a medium ballad with lyrics that resonate in one’s heart and an unforgettable melody, and is doubtless the essence of ayu’s ballads.

“Missing” is a rock track composed by Mr Hara Kazuhiro, who also composed other big hits; a medium number overflowing with sorrow.

These 3 tracks shine with ayu’s charm. Furthermore, the current big hit for this summer “You & Me” have also been remixed by Oosawa Shinichi and Remo-con, to make up a total of 12 tracks!

This mini album marks the first out of 5 releases, which will be coming out on 8 Dec (Sat), 8 Jan (Tue), 8 Feb (Fri) and 8 Mar (Fri)!!
