DAOKO recently digitally released her new song Owaranai Sekai de which serves as the theme song for the action RPG app Dragalia Lost. She also announced her third studio album to be in production, but the title and details surrounding it had yet to be revealed.
The album is titled Shiteki Ryoko (‘Personal Journey’) which symbolizes the singer stepping onto a new path away from the blue period of her previous album THANK YOU BLUE.
The album features appearances from Takeshi Kobayashi, Yoshiki Mizuno of Ikimono-gakari, and Masayuki Nakano of Boom Boom Satellites.
Production has been carried out with Taku Inoue, Hideya Kojima of ORESAMA, Kikuo, 神山羊, Hanyu Maigo amongst others. The album also features a solo version of Uchiage Hanabi, the hit song originally by DAOKO and Kenshi Yonezu whose animated music video has almost 200m views on YouTube.
