Anri Kumaki changing labels, releasing new album [Kazari no nai Ashita] in March

Singer-Songwriter Anri KUMAKI has announced that she will be switching labels, from unBORDE (a division of Warner Music Japan) to Yamaha Music Communications, where veteran singer-songwriter Miyuki NAKAJIMA is significantly involved in producing artists.

Anri’s first album on her new label will be titled Kazari no nai Ashita (“Undecorated Tomorrow”). It will contain ten songs, with a release date of March 16, 2016. The album will be released in 3 versions: two versions (A and B) with different DVDs containing live performance clips, and a third version, type C, which will be the CD-only regular edition. All three versions have different jacket art.

The announcement on Anri’s official site explains that the album was crafted with the the themes of “Living straight and with truth, without unnecessary superfluousness” and “Precisely because the past is brilliant, the future contains endless possibility.”

The album tracklist:

  1. ハルイロ HARUIRO | possibly “spring color” spelled in katakana
  2. くちびるの魔法 Kuchibiru no mahou | “Magic of the lips”
  3. 飾りのない明日 Kazari no nai ashita | “Undecorated tomorrow”
  4. ライナーノーツ LAINAANOOTSU | “Liner notes”
  5. 夏の日 Natsu no hi | “Summer day”
  6. 白き者へ Shiroki mono e | “For those who are white”
  7. 灯び Tomoshibi | “Lantern”
  8. 幻 Maboroshi | “Illusion”
  9. 今日を壊せ Kyou wo kowase | “Break today” (“Break” is in the imperative, as a command)
  10. 忘れ路の旅人 Wasurero no tabibito | “Travelers forgetting the road” (a play on the verb “wasurero”, the imperative of “forget” with the kanji for “road” which is also read as “ro”)
