ayaka to release first new studio album in over 3 years

Popular singer-songwriter ayaka has recently announced that she’ll be releasing a new studio album titled “Rainbow Road” this year on April 15th.  “Rainbow Road” will be ayaka’s first full album to be released in over three years since “The Beginning” hit shelves back in February of 2012 and will include her previously released songs “Tsuyoku Omou”, “beautiful”, “Arigatou no Wa”, “number one”, and “Nijiiro” as well as a selection of newer tracks.

The new album is set to be released in four versions:

  • A CD-Only Edition which will only include the new album
  • A 3CD Edition which will also include two discs of live audio from ayaka’s “Nijiiro Acoustic Live Tour 2014 ~3-STAR RAW~”
  • A 3CD+DVD Edition which adds a DVD that will contain music videos for her songs, such as “Nijiiro”
  • The Room Ayaka Edition, which is also a 3CD+DVD package that exchanges the Music Video DVD for a DVD of songs which were covered (or self-covered) by ayaka in a live setting (examples of this can be found on ayaka’s Official Youtube Channel, though more than what has been posted there will be included)

We will continue to report on this album as its release date draws closer, but please look forward to both “Rainbow Road” and the Live DVD of ayaka’s acoustic tour, which is set to release on March 18th.
