29.October.2016 | MUSIC

Kyary Pamyu Pamyu has gone all out this year with 2016 marking the 5th year anniversary since the pop princess’s debut. She embarked on her 3rd world tour “KPP 5iVE YEARS MONSTER WORLD TOUR 2016” and also released her first ever best-of album “KPP BEST”.

On the other side of things, Nakata Yasutaka recently released the theme song “NANIMONO (feat. Kenshi Yonze)” for the film “Nanimono” which is still showing in cinemas and has become a huge hit. The track itself also became an enormous success on iTunes and the Apple Music charts. To celebrate the upcoming “〜SPECIAL DJ✕LIVE ZEPP TOUR 2016〜 「YSTK×KPP」” tour which will begin at ZEPP Nagoya on November 10th, both artists will release a double-A side split single, with a new solo track from Nakata Yasutaka and a new song from Kyary Pamyu Pamyu.

This new single will allow you to hear both artists’ work on one CD. It was recently announced that Kyary Pamyu Pamyu would release her 13th single on November 9th. However, the track will now instead be released alongside Nakata Yasutaka’s solo track on this new double-a side single on January 18th, 2017.

Kyary’s new song is the first new release since her best-of album and will be the start of “Kyary Pamyu Pamyu Chapter 2”, bringing to us what we can all a much more eccentric, adult-like sound. Nakata Yasutaka’s solo track will be a marvel of a track, featuring a certain overseas artist with guest vocals from Kyary Pamyu Pamyu.

The news of the new single also comes as part of Kyary Pamyu Pamyu’s “5 Plans” for 2016, one of which was to collaborate with an overseas artist. Another plan has at last been fulfilled, and we are excited to hear the information as to who exactly Kyary collaborated with. Details regarding the participating artist and the contents of the new record will be announced in the near future. Keep your eyes peeled for all the information regarding the second half of Kyary’s celebratory year!
