kyary_nadaKYARY PAMYU PAMYU will be releasing her second studio album titled Nanda Collection later this month.

The album features 12 songs and collates Kyary’s earlier single releases Fashion Monster, Ninjari Ban Ban, Kimi ni 100%/Furisodeshon and Invader Invader.

The album also features new songs such as Mi (preview below) which again continue the scary hairy one’s trend for bizarre and catchy J-Pop tunes.

The album’s title is based on a play on words as the Japanese spelling is ‘Nanda Kore Ku Shon’ which comes from the combination of ‘nande kore’ (“what in the world is this?”) and ‘kore ku shon’ (“collection”).

Kyary herself has been keeping busy following her global tour (which included her UK debut in February) expanding her profile abroad by promoting ‘Cool Japan’ on visits to the USA.

Nanda Collection will be released as a CD-only regular edition and also as a special First Press Limited Edition that will feature a photo book and additional DVD featuring 4 music videos.

The CD album release features the following tracks:

  • Nandakorekushon
  • Ninjari Ban Ban
  • Kimi ni 100%

  • Invader Invader
  • Mi
  • Fashion Monster

While the Limited Edition release features a DVD as follows:
