May’n to release recent albums in US

HEAT, the new album from May’n, is due for release via iTunes in the US later this month alongside her 2011 release If you…

May’n is probably best known for her contribution to Macross Frontier when she became the singing voice for the character Sheryl Nome back in 2007. Her recent 2012 album HEAT reached the Oricon Top Ten on its release and includes the anime themes ‘Brain Diver’ (Phi Brain) and ‘Scarlet Ballet’ (Aria the Scarlet Ammo), plus Giant Step from her collaboration song for Kamen Rider Fourze.

May’n’s previous album If you… released in 2011 includes more anime and game themes, such as ‘Ready! Go!’ (Okami-san and her Seven Companions), ‘Moshimo kimi ga Negau no Nara’ (Valkyria Chronicles 3: Unrecorded Chronicles), and Shinjitemiru (Incite Mill – 7 Day Death Game).

Both albums will be available on iTunes USA on May 16th as well as her latest single ‘Chase The World’, which features in the anime Accel World.

These releases coincide with May’n performing two concerts in the US in June 2012 (May’n had previously performed at Anime Expo in Los Angeles in 2010).
