Seiko Matsuda is not letting her 40th anniversary end! Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, she is continuing to be in anniversary mode, deciding to release the new album “SEIKO MATSUDA 2021” on October 20. This album serves as a sequel to her previous album, “SEIKO MATSUDA 2020.” It will include the remake digital singles “Aoi Sangoshou ~Blue Lagoon~” and “Jikan no Kuni no Alice ~Alice in the world of time~.” In total, the album will feature five self-covers and five new songs.
“SEIKO MATSUDA 2021” will come in three editions: CD+DVD limited edition, CD only regular edition, and an UNIVERSAL MUSIC STORE edition. The DVD that comes with the limited edition and the Blu-ray that comes with the UNIVERSAL MUSIC STORE edition features music videos and other special content. The UNIVERSAL MUSIC STORE edition also comes in a special box which includes both “SEIKO MATSUDA 2020” and “SEIKO MATSUDA 2021” on vinyl, a poster, and a LP-sized booklet.
In tandem with the album release, Seiko has released the music video for one of the new songs on the album, “Watashi no Ai.” It was written and composed by Zaitsu Kazuo. He has previously collaborated with Seiko on the songs “Cherry Blosssom”, “Natsu no Tobira”, “Shiroi Parasol”, and “Nobara no Etude.” The song is a means of Seiko conveying her feelings to her fans. She hopes that once the pandemic is over, she and her fans can reunite at concerts to sing the song together. Check out the video, which was directed by Seiko, below!
