Original Love, the solo unit of Tajima Takao (ex-Pizzicato Five), has a new album coming this week! For this album Tajima says having played all instruments and done everything by himself down to mixing and mastering. It also includes a first collaboration with Scha Dara Parr, all promising a lot of fresh sounds!
At a recent show, fans were asked to record video for new song "Free Ride" and to upload their videos to YouTube! It seems like those fan-submitted videos will end up being used in an official video, but for now the ingredients can all be viewed separately here on YouTube. Below you can watch what was filmed from an official camera, including the fans' reaction to the surprising request.
This album comes in two editions, a special limited edition including a bonus DVD of one live track for the same price (while supplies last).
