Mr.Children’s latest album “SENSE” is on sale today!

Mr.Children has bee so successful since early 90s, it practically owns a small part of Japanese economy. ;-)

This time, the band completely kept any information regarding with the latest CD till just 3 days prior to the release date. As the band has sold more than 1 million copies with 12 consecutive records, these mysteries surely stirred the expectations even more towards another million seller.

“SENSE”, which was just released in Japan today, December 1st 2010, contains 12 songs, which includes the track “fanfare” – the theme song for the “ONE PIECE FILM Strong World”. For the first time in the band’s history, not one track is that of a previously released single.

With the announcements made this time, Mr.Children also announced their Arena tour, which will lead them through 12 places all over Japan, starting February 2011. If I am lucky enough to score a ticket myself, I will be so happy I might pass out like a teenage girl. :-D The last time I saw their live show was 15 years ago so this is actually a big deal to me! :-)

In any case, for those who haven’t noticed, I have slowly begun translating Mr.Children’s lyrics into English. On the top navigation bar, you’ll find a link called “Mr.Children’s Lyrics”. From there, you will be able to access to the translated lyrics.

Below are featured songs for “SENSE”:

01. I
02. 擬態 (Gitai)
