Kyary Pamyu Pamyu Announces 4th Album ‘Japamyu’ to be Released on September 26

17.August.2018 | MUSIC

2018 has been a busy year for Kyary Pamyu Pamyu who digitally released her new song Kimino Mikata and recently concluded her world tour.

But she’s showing no signs of stopping yet as she has just announced her long-awaited fourth studio album Japamyu which will be released on September 26, 2018. Some details have also been unveiled in addition to the CD cover art.

The 10-track album includes hit songs like Sai & CoHarajuku Iyahoi and Kimino Mikata as well as a cover of CAPSULE’s famous song Koi no Hana (2001). As the album title suggests―a fusion of “Japan” and “Kyary Pamyu Pamyu”―it will include a range of new oriental-sounding tracks different from anything we’ve heard before.


Kyary joined hands with art director Mitsuo Shindo for the new record’s cover art, who has worked on over 1,000 CD jackets. It is a new front from the singer and the image of a representative artist of Japan who has just completed her fourth world tour.


The album’s first press limited edition will include a special photo book featuring the above artwork as well as a DVD of Kyary’s final 23-song performance of her 2017 KPP Japan Iyahoi Tour at NHK Hall.


It has been one year and eight months since her last hall tour. Tickets for the new Japamyu Hall Tour 2018 “Hoshikuzu no Cherry Martini” go on sale from August 18.


Kyary Pamyu Pamyu’s Comments

Sorry for making everyone wait so long. My first album in four years ‘Japamyu’ is finally here! You can look forward to enjoying an oriental vibe. There’s lots of songs that are going to be fun live, so definitely listen to the album and come to the hall tour!


Art Director Mitsuo Shindo’s Comments

I’ve watched her since her debut, but to actually finally be working on one of her designs makes me so happy. I think it might come as a surprise to some people, but it feels natural to me. I’m a fan of Yasutaka Nakata to begin with! The most important thing for Nakata right now too for Kyary’s projects is probably what’s catchy. My aim was to create something fantastical to show off to the world, and something that’s Japanese fantasy. Just what’s about to happen with Kyary! Please look forward to seeing it.
