  • ONE OK ROCK Releases New Album ‘Luxury Disease’ Worldwide, First Album in Over Three Years

    13.September.2022 | MUSIC

    Japanese rock band ONE OK ROCK has become hugely popular, expanding its activities worldwide in recent years. On September 9, the band released its first new album worldwide in three and a half years, Luxury Disease. Although the album includes six songs that have already been released, the rest of the new release has remained a mystery–until now.

     

    After their last more experimental album, the band stated that this new release would be a proper rock album. Each track has a distinct personality, ranging from emotional numbers to heart-wrenching, passionate ballads that are typical of ONE OK ROCK, and even rock opera songs that are completely new for the members. Ed Sheeran, Satoshi Fujihara (Official HiGE DANdism), and other top artists and creators from both Japan and abroad contributed to the album.

     

    The limited first edition includes a bonus DVD with two acoustic tracks, allowing listeners to hear the differences between the original arrangements and the different lyrics found on the international versions.

     

    This album is sure to inspire, and you won’t want to miss it–especially since it’s streaming on music services now!

    01.September.2022 | MUSIC

    Japanese rock band ONE OK ROCK has become hugely popular, expanding its activities worldwide in recent years. The group has just released the single Let Me Let You Go from the upcoming album Luxury Disease, set to hit shelves on September 9, 2022. The track was co-written with Ashton Irwin, a member of 5 Seconds of Summer.

    Along with the song’s release, a Live Documentary Video for Let Me Let You Go was also uploaded to YouTube. The video is mainly filled with live footage, but also includes rehearsal and backstage footage, as well as drama-style footage shot for the project.
