Happy New Year!

I haven't been on here in a while, and I know that Utena posted this on her Facebook page, but Mika's REAL album's scheduled for release on January 30, 2013.

http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/detailview.html?KEY=AICL-2499

TRACKLIST (Courtesy of the above link)

1. 初恋 (※映画「今日、恋をはじめます」テーマソング)
2. Dear (※映画「八日目の蝉」主題歌)
3. 明日世界が終わるなら (映画「バイオハザードV: リトリビューション」日本版主題歌)
4. PASSION
5. You Knocked Me Out
6. LOVE IS ECSTASY (※映画「アンフェア the answer」主題歌)
7. BE REAL
8. SUPER WOMAN
9. SUPREME
10. ピアス
11. 記憶 (※CASIO「SHEEN」CMソング)
12. エピローグ
13. LETTER

Tracks 4, 7, 9-10, and 12-13 are brand new songs, for six in total out of the 13 songs featured on this new album.

The DVD that comes with the Limited Edition - right now I don't have any information on what's to be included on it, but for now I'd presume that it'll contain all of the four videos made for it.
I have ten thousand kitties in my room. (Just kidding.)

Tons of interviews are here, there and everywhere for the promotion of "REAL".
Here are a few impressive answers...

Q : I understand that it certainly wasn't a smooth road for you in the past two years...
A : I was so depressed...to a large degree. Rather, it would be strange to be able to go strong despite that there was a period when I couldn't sing due to the disorder of ears.
I thought too much and came to a standstill and at last, I escaped to NYC. In fact, I was too ashamed to show my face in pulic. And I spent my first three months all alone.... I intended to relax my mind at first, but conversely, I put myself in a hole.

Q : Is there anything you left behind just before 30's?
A : Actually, I was supposed to get married and already have a child. I never thought I'd dye my hair blond and dress in funny clothes like this. But I mostly did what I wanted to do...

Q : What do you want to do in 2013?
A : I always think over recent years that I want to get a "midsize" motorbike license.

Some of her answers made my sad but at the same very impressed. She came over her worst fears stronger than ever. I'm so proud to be one of her devoted fans :)
