MOMOIRO CLOVER Z to release two new albums simultaneously in 2016

Idol outfit Momoiro Clover Z have unveiled plans for their follow-up to 2013’s 5TH DIMENSION album which will actually involve releasing both the 3rd and 4th albums together.

Momoclo have been relatively quiet on the record front in 2015. January saw the release of their collaboration single with US rock band KISS, titled ‘Yume no Ukiyo ni Saitemina’. The sinister guitar rhythms of the song seemed to slot in perfectly with Momoiro’s theatrical vocal style and the result was an engaging slice of idol pop gone rock.

In March, Momoclo released their 14th single, the wistful ‘Seishunfu’ and followed this up with ‘Z no Chikai’, which saw the outfit returning to their more familiar hyper-kinetic pop style. ‘Z no Chikai’ featured in the anime film Dragon Ball Z: Fukkatsu no F and the music video has the Momoclo members dressed as various characters from the Dragon Ball universe (the members also have voice acting roles in the film itself).

Momoclo’s 3rd album AMARANTHUS and 4th album Hakkin no Yoake are due for release in February and both albums will feature 13 tracks each.

As ever, special editions will also be released featuring Blu-Ray discs with videos, documentaries and additional footage (both Blu-Rays will feature separate content relevant to each album).

Although precise details of the album track listings have yet to be unveiled, the info on the albums so far are:

AMARANTHUS
Standard Edition:
– CD with 13 tracks

Limited Edition (CD+Blu-Ray)
– CD with 13 tracks
– Blu-Ray: Music video + Album documentary + Off-shot footage

Hakkin no Yoake
Standard Edition:
– CD with 13 tracks

Limited Edition (CD+Blu-Ray)
– CD with 13 tracks
– Blu-Ray: Music video + Album documentary + Off-shot footage

The decision to release both their 3rd and 4th albums at the same time is certainly a bold one, but getting two album’s worth of Momoclo in one go isn’t something that fans are going to be complaining about.
