It's with ambivalence that we update the latest edition of the JPU RECORDS PLAYLIST. On one hand, we're excited to bring out the new playlist of fantastic J-pop tracks chosen especially by SCANDAL vocalist HARUNA. On the other, we're sad to see our series of SCANDAL playlists come to an end. We've discovered some great tracks over the recent weeks, and we hope you did too! Follow and listen on Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer and YouTube Music.
Similar to the playlists from TOMOMI, RINA and MAMI, HARUNA's includes a number of classic Japanese pop. Such as the very first single written by Hikaru Utada. She also takes a track off of Sheena Ringo's debut album (the demo of which was supposedly written while the star did home-stay in London!).
This is probably the most chilled out playlist we've released so far, and we hope you enjoy it and find some songs that resonate with you. For us, "Imagination" by the fantastic Frederic is one of our personal highlights, and now we also have Tokyo Flash from Vaundy stuck in our heads for the umpteenth time this year!
