This album cover is exclusive to Japan, and some other parts of SE Asia.
The U.S. & worldwide album artwork will be different.
This Is Where We Are, the title of my new album, is on it's way out, via SE Asia, and then to the U.S. and hopefully the rest of the world.
It's being released next week on June 19th in Japan!!! This will be the first place in the world who will hear my new album. Some of you might be wondering, why Japan? Why not the U.S. first? Well, as some of you know, I'm no longer on a record label in the U.S., so I've actually made this album all on my own here. So we're in the process of locking down a few deals in the U.S. right now. After that, we have to do the proper promotion, so that people (other than my hardcore fans) will know of its release. The intention is to have a big and successful release, rather than a small and unnoticed one (so please tell your friends!). The release date for This Is Where We Are
will probably be sometime in late September or October in the U.S./Worldwide. I'm bummed some of you have to wait that long. Especially since I'm so excited to get this album out there to you!!! But the following releases will be something like this:
JAPAN - June 19th
S. KOREA - July
TAIWAN - September
U.S./WORLDWIDE - late September/October
SE Asia gets to release my album first, because I'm still on labels there, so we've been doing promo for it for a little while. Hence, why I'm still in Taiwan! :)
I am having a BLAST here! I feel like it deserves its own separate post. I'll work on it during my flight to Beijing today.
Lots of love,
