  • Pikotaro Releases New Album ‘I have a PPAP’ Worldwide

    18.July.2018 | MUSIC

    Singer-songwriter Pikotaro, known for the viral hit song Pen Pineapple Apple Pen, released his first album I have a PPAP digitally across 150 countries on July 13.

    The album features a total of 31 tracks including Pikataro’s big hits throughout 2017-2018 such as PPAP as well as his newest song Can you see? I’m SUSHI. This record is the ultimate Pikotaro experience.

    Pikotaro has the following to say about his new song: “When I went to Belgium and spoke with the Belgian staff about making a song about something Japan is known for, I improvised while singing, and they found it really funny. I’m really happy to have been able to make a song in this way. Although Japan is a sushi country there’s not a lot of songs about sushi, so I want both the people of the world and  of Japan to use this opportunity to sing about it!



    Pikotaro may be about to cause a sushi boom across the world, so be sure to check out the music video.
