SCANDAL Ivory: 15th Anniversary Celebrations Continue with International Limited-Edition Cassette
Japanese pop-rock queens SCANDAL will release 'Ivory' on 16 June, the second single of their 15th anniversary year! The band have reached legendary status in Japan where all nine of their studio albums have ranked in the charts at position five or higher. This latest single is written, composed and sung by SCANDAL's powerful guitarist MAMI, and co-arranged by the musician Kohei Munemoto (KAT-TUN, KinKi Kids, Mika Nakashima), and also features an acoustic version of the track. The cover sees art director Junya Handa return, who also worked on prior single 'eternal'.
To celebrate the release, London's JPU Records will be releasing a special edition tape cassette featuring both versions of the track, as well as a translation and transliteration of the lyrics. This edition will be limited strictly to 100 copies and will not be re-pressed. It’s available to pre-order today. It’s best to order quick as the previous single sold out fast. The single is also available to download and stream from the same link.
SCANDAL's latest album Kiss from the darkness is also available from JPU Records on CD with English lyric translations and Romaji. Its limited edition bundle with an English printed copy of SCANDAL's magazine 'her' is also available while stocks last.
SCANDAL's postponed world tour is still planned to go ahead later this year.
