Kimura Kaela (official Facebook page) has a new cover album focused on 80's popular tunes (and some older ones). Various producers and collaborators are featured, including Ishino Takkyu (Denki Groove), Hosono Haruomi (YMO), Okamura Yasuyuki, Chara, Predawn, Kishida Shigeru (Quruli), Okuda Tamio, CSS and more.
This was being released on ELA, Kaela's own new label (sub-label of Victor). There are limited editions that come as a record-sized jacket, one with a bag designed by Kaela. Below is the regular edition (CD only) to keep things simple.
