Ayumi Hamasaki: 10th Album (25/03/2009): Next Level (updated)

As was predicted, Ayumi Hamasaki is releasing her 10th full album on March 25th 2009. And I must, it's quite a bold release, it will have 4 versions, with the 4th version being an awesome looking USB-stick! ^^
The first version includes an extra CD which is a Live CD with 14 songs recorded from the Premium Countdown Live 2008-2009. The DVD's will contains 6 PV's and 6 Making of's, the USB will only feature the PV's, but also a digital booklet.

With the album being released so close to the new tour, will the tour contain many of these new songs? Me is excited ^^ As was released last week, this years tour has been officially called the ~Next Level~ tour, so I guess we will have several songs from the new album being performed on this tour!

I must say, I really love these wacky new titles ;p And also a very special cover for the 2CD+DVD version ^^

I am so excited for this album! The Flash
drive looks completley amazing! I loved
both of her singles for this album and I
just can’t wait! GREEN is my favorite out
of all the songs though… and the
pre-chorus for Rule was good also. Sparkle
is just what she needed to revive her
“poppiness” and Days was very beautiful in
everyway! YAY!!!
