Perfume’s latest single, Cling Cling, was only released last July 16 in Japan. But before its release date, there were already a handful of promotions to publicize the said single.
One was making a lyric video of one of the coupling songs entitled ‘Hold your hand’. They even invited international fans to join the campaign of taking photos of their fans’ hands with the lyrics of the song. The full version of the ‘Hold your hand’ PV is slated to be released this July 21st so better watch out!
Second was holding a contest at their official facebook page and twitter account. The winners will then get a Perfume clearfile/plastic folder.
Third was having a live streaming of showing their “Cling Cling World” set and performances of ‘Cling Cling’, 2006 released single ‘Electro World’ and ‘Hold your hand’.
Fourth was opening their “Cling Cling World” set located in Harujuku Astro Hall to the public for two days!

On another news, Perfume was chosen to promote their hometown, Hiroshima, by having a guidebook entitled “Nakeru! Hiroshima-ken” (Don’t shed tears, Hiroshima!) Check out their site http://hiroshima-welcome.jp/ to see a clip of Perfume promoting Hiroshima.
