Oh no another Ai no Uta to add to the list. But those covers, damn. It's been way too long since a release, and it seems like she's coming back with a vengeance haha

I'll echo what everyone said. Great covers. Since everyone's praising her covers, which one is your favorite? I think a recent one I really liked was the cover for "Hatsukoi". It's actually a nice contrast to this one.

It's hard to answer with only one particular cover, each has it's own mood; Aishiteru; CANDY GIRL and Ichiban kirei na watashi wo's are my favs.

I like the music video. She's so beautiful with the red outfit but it's also a bit creepy. It's perfect! The song... hmm... I'm not sure. I find that the vocals and the instrumental don't go well together.

Hanataba is the best song she's done in years - great progression, excellent melody and catchy chorus. Thank you Nakashima Mika for swooping in to save jpop.

Beautiful covers. And the MV is gorgeous, but the song... nothing new. Reminds me of previous songs, which is bad, cuz now sounds boring. But it's not that bad either. Listenable at least.

P.D: YES is a masterpiece. Period.

and she'll be going on tour again this year. Her very first acoustic tour, which is pretty exciting IMO. I wasn't expecting her to tour again this year, which is just perfect coz I'm planning a trip this summer and I was kinda bummed I wouldn't be able to see her perform but I will <3

I like the idea of the tribute album! Am I right in saying Aimer had already covered Orion? I wonder if Aimer and Hyde will be re-recording their songs?

Yes! You are right, Aimer covered it a while ago. I think they will just include the songs on the tribute album. For those who didn't listen to it yet:
