He has said that for a couple of months now. On his Yoshiki Channels, so, not exactly “new” info.

To my knowledge he has never said the entire album is done, only the recording. On an interview taken yesterday/today (depending on time zone), Yoshiki said:

"I was recording the album right until the last minute, and was actually supposed to come back to Japan the day before yesterday," said Yoshiki, who arrived in Tokyo on the same flight as Japan's newly crowned U.S. Open tennis women's singles champion Naomi Osaka.

"It's taken almost 10 years, so instead of thinking about a tour and all those things, I just wanted to concentrate on finishing the album. It is done now and I will talk to my agent and manager about what to do with it."


He postponed flying specifically to finish the album and talks with management are now allowed to proceed. That has never happened before regarding this album.

Edit: Sorry, here's the interview: https://japantoday.com/category/entertainment/X-Japan-leader-Yoshiki-says-he-will-never-stop-trying-to-crack-U.S.-market

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

Again, I saw the interview when it was happening and he said he was recording, he didn’t say he was recording the album... which wouldn’t make sense because he said recording were done. He said he finally finished recording Red Swan, so it’s probably that.

And I’m sure he did say in those Yoshiki Channels he’s had in the last month that everything was done.

To my knowledge he has never said the entire album is done, only the recording.

In 2014 he even posted on Facebook a picture of the album master, saying that it was done.
This last interview seems more usual Yoshiki bullshit.

That was 2015 (I just realized I'm the kind of fan who will scroll through sm to find a post I remember, oy) and he never said it was finished, only that it was "coming soon."

I know from personal experience that it's easy to completely lose yourself in mixing music, especially when mixing your own recordings. And Yoshiki seems to be obsessive enough to do exactly that. So, it doesn't excite me to hear that recording is done.
I wonder which one will be released first: The album or George R.R.Martin's Winds of winter?

AOL was piano only.
