Looking ahead, March-April 2022

[Cocco - Prom]

Cocco, Prom, March 23

Cocco released her debut album Bougainvillea in March 1997, and 2022 marks her 25th anniversary. So she’s commemorating that achievement with a new album.

ASIAN KUNG-FU GENERATION, Planet Folks, March 30

ASIAN KUNG-FU GENRATION return with their first new album in 4 years, one year longer than their usual gap. At this point, I’ll just blame SARS-CoV2 for the delay, even if it’s not the reason.

Vinyl

Utada Hikaru, First Love, March 23
Utada Hikaru, Distance, March 23
Utada Hikaru, DEEP RIVER, March 23
Utada Hikaru, Ultra Blue, April 27
Utada Hikaru, HEART STATION, April 27
Utada Hikaru, Fantôme, April 27
Utada Hikaru, Hatsukoi, April 27
Utada Hikaru, BAD Mode, April 27

OMG Ultra Blue on vinyl! But yeah, I’m getting them all, except Hatsukoi, which I already have. By the way, I’m really liking BAD Mode.
