URBANGARDE's Yoko Hamasaki dives into BLIND LOVE with double album release

2019-07-12
Urbangarde


URBANGARDE lead vocalist Yoko Hamasaki has released a remastered version of her first album Film noir (2010), now titled Film noir ultime. The album contains 3 new tracks, including the new song "FORGIVE ME", which returns Hamasaki to the smooth synth-pop style of her 2016 album Blue Forest.



Film noir ultime's release comes at the same time as the CD release of her third album, BLIND LOVE, produced by renowned Japanese city-pop pioneer Toshiki Kadomatsu. BLIND LOVE's lead track, "BIBLE", uses unapologetically sensual lyrics to describe an awakening of the senses spawned by a sudden, intense relationship.

"Working with Toshiki Kadomatsu allowed me to bring my music and my singing technique to a higher level," Hamasaki said. "He had so many innovative ideas, and when I listened to the final version of the album, I was so happy to see how it all came together. I put my trust in him completely, and I feel like I discovered a new part of myself making this album."
