SING LIKE TALKING、2年ぶりのニュー・アルバムをリリース!

今年デビュー25周年を迎えたSING LIKE TALKINGが、約2年ぶりのオリジナル・アルバム『Befriend』を6月5日(水)にリリースした。

今作は2012年初頭より楽曲制作を開始。「前作『Empowerment』のテーマが、自分自身に向き合い、一個人としてどう立ち上がっていくかとか、ある種の"決意"みたいなものが中心だったとすれば、今回のアルバムは、みんなと前に進むとか、とにかく歩き始めよう、支えあおう、楽しい時間を過ごそうというトーンがメインになっている」とメンバーは作品について語っている。まさに25年間の活動の集大成ともいえる本作は、原点回帰の意味も込めて、メンバー3人を主軸にした、デビュー当時の楽曲制作のスタイルがとられており、シンプルでありながら実に力強い、SLTにしか出来ないオンリーワンのサウンドだ。




さらに、SING LIKE TALKINGが過去リリースしてきたオリジナル・アルバムが、『Befriend』の発売日同日にiTunesにて配信された。オリジナル・ファースト・アルバム『TRY AND TRY AGAIN』以降、10枚目のオリジナル・アルバム『METABOLISM』までの10作品に加え、ベストアルバム『SECOND REUNION ~The Best Of Sing Like Talking~』なども含むファン垂涎の13タイトルが一挙配信されるので、是非こちらもチェックしていただきたい。

また、4月に東京国際フォーラム・ホールAで行われたベストセレクションライブ「25th Anniversary SING LIKE TALKING"Amusement Pocket 25/50"」で、日本屈指のミュージシャン達とともに抜群のパフォーマンスを披露し、大盛況のうちに幕を下ろしたSING LIKE TALKINGは、その興奮覚めやらぬ中、同ライブから新曲「The Great Escape」のティザー映像を公開。この映像は、SING LIKE TALKINGの公式チャンネルで配信している。

Bey keeps motherhood überfashionable by rocking a fur sling.

Of course Blue Ivy is Watch the Throne's biggest (and yet somehow, smallest) fan.

Jay-Z and Blue Ivy make their way from the Meurice hotel in Paris on June 4.

The mother and daughter were spotted at Bergdorf Goodman's in New York by a fan in October 2012.

Jay and Blue Ivy.

Bey shared these photos of a ten-month-old Blue Ivy in November.

SING LIKE TALKING、2年ぶりのニュー・アルバムをリリース!

The marriage bra, unlocking the key to women's hearts everywhere.

Fish food sold separately.

Maybe you can't grow bigger boobs, but you can grow rice!

This bra helps you score a hole in one every time.

This bra demonstrates the rise of women in Japan and looks super comfortable!

Because nothing promotes tourism and pride in one's country quite like a bra.

Who wouldn't like to eat food like this?!

The jury is out. This bra is guilty of being uncomfortable.

A bra designed by Bjork.

How romantic!

Overcoming addiction just got a whole lot easier.

If this bra doesn't stop the birth rate decline in Tokyo, then I don't know what will.

Turn your iphone on and turn him on with Triumph's solar bra. Because what is more attractive than a fully charged phone?
