This is promising! So it seems we have,

1. La Venus
2. Angel
3. Beneath the Skin
4. Hero
5. Rockstar
6. IV
7. Jade
8. Born to be Free
9. Kiss the Sky

Maybe we Will have 1-3 unheard songs, but its possible they could be short, instrumental tracks like a reworked "The Last Song"

I was just skimming the old thread. Fun fact- the last album announcement will be almost exactly 3 years ago from this date, July 3rd 2015.

Omg look how happy he looks in that screenshot... such a beautiful soul  ;D

Aaand... VUK album on the same date as the X JAPAN album? If I post my address will someone come check my pulse to see if I'm still breathing?

I've been thinking of VUK so much lately and kind of downly thinking that it will never come out lol. I am super excited for the announcement in a few days... eeeeeee

Edit: I agree with you axl, that one of the songs is most likely The Last Song. It's the song that brings the new album full circle. Of course Yoshiki/X is full of surprises so they might not lead with that like they were planning to a few years ago but it is a good guess to assume it's included imo!

We are not trying to keep the legacy—we are trying to move forward, so our sound is going to change. I’m ready to be criticized, for example by fans saying "you should rather be this style." I’m ready for it, I’m okay with any concept of criticism-Yoshiki

On one hand this comment makes me think " so, never? ;p" buuuuut after over a decade, I'm staying optimistic!

Definitely think the extra 4 songs will be instrumental/short pieces.

So we can drown our sorrows in case he announces another release date delay? Thanks, Yoshiki, how very considerate of you.  8)

Right Scarlet Love Song,

I've totally forgotten about this song. But it's very nice.

If both albums will be released on the same day, seems like there will be two albums that will never be released.

When he posted a picture of the supposed album master, in 2014, the first song of the album was "The Last Song". So I think it will still be there.

I have the feeling that Scarlet Love Song will not be on the album, as he is focusing in english songs. And somehow looks like he didn't like the song, as they NEVER played it live, and the single came out in 2010.

Toshi and him did play it live a few times in those Toshi ft Yoshiki shows. But I don’t think it’s going to be on the album either. I’m not sure if I.V will be on it, Sugizo isn’t even on that song, unless they re-recorded it because Yoshiki said before that the original was 7 or 8 minutes long and had and actual guitar solo but he had to cut it short for the movie.

Violet UK coming out would be the most shocking thing of all tbh lol

The fact that Yoshiki talked about having doubts about whether an album format still makes sense in today's market makes me wonder why he wants to put out a Violet Uk one. Maybe it's just a personal thing.
If he publishes it as an X/Violet Uk double album, I will have to fly to LA and kick him in the crotch.

Maybe X Japan will be physical and Violet UK digital? I hope not though... I want them both to be physical albums

I might be more excited for the VUK album than X Japan's. I am as much a fan of VUK as X Japan so him saying they will come out together is very, very, very ,very good news to me.

This might actually be true now. Actually I would be really intrigued by the Violet UK release more if most of the songs on the new X Japan album are ones we have already heard.

''New Yoshiki wine will be released at dinner show. In December, a more great version of wine will be released"

This actually made me smile more. A greater version of wine will be released! What is a 'more great' version of wine I wonder?

Hi, all!

I have something to talk about.

I didn't see the Yoshiki Channel myself(can't find the file or link :'(). I posted this post based on the blog below.

https://blog.naver.com/hayashix/221290539755

The blogger is reliable and much better at Japanese than me, so I translated the post directly.

But today, I was worried that the information was wrong, so I searched related keywords.

https://search.yahoo.co.jp/realtime/search?ei=UTF-8&rkf=1&p=yoshiki+%E9%87%8D%E5%A4%A7%E7%99%BA%E8%A1%A8

To sum up, Yoshiki said that X Japan's album recording will be finished by July.

Other things - the date of an important announcement(July 8th), Yoshiki photo album, Carnegie Hall DVD, Yoshiki wine etc. are all true.

But there is one thing that needs to be corrected. It is true that Yoshiki talked about Violet UK album. But he didn't say it comes out definitely. He just said "There is a possibility that it will be released(VioletUKのアルバムもでるかも!?).

I think it would be better not to expect the VUK album.

But X Japan album is sure to come out soon according to Yoshiki.

Finally!!

Works for me :)

Sounds like a Fall release date is very reasonable and likely

I wish it too. Some Japanese expect it will be about Yoshiki solo activity.  ;D

Are you a genius? Yeah! The announcement that he will make on July 8th may be about the postponement of the album release. ah... I couldn't think of it.  :(

That's really too bad... I think it would have been a great move tbh. A lot of X fans who really don't care about VUK would be motivated to buy VUK's album out of excitement and accessibility.

But I understand in hindsight that it was a lot to expect.

 Too early to be disappointed. Because Yoshiki said there is a "possibility" that the album would be released, so hope still remains.
