Nothing on the release news front, but he's recently changed labels to Ariola Records, making him labelmates with Sukima Switch, Hajime Chitose and Hata Motohiro amongst others.
It's still under Sony, so he hasn't left his parent company.
He's also doing a Ken's Bar tour in the next few months, with final performances on the 23rd and 24th December at Yokohama Arena. Went to Volume 1 at Budokan a few months ago; setlist is as follows:
