Toshiyuki Yasuda has a brand new album out now! This is his 6th album, the follow-up to "Nameless God's Blue" (2015), although this time he used a completely new process to produce music which he calls "Version Up Music". Started in 2016 as a crowdfunding project, participants were allowed to give their feedback as the compositions evolved version after version, until this 10.3.3 which finally got released as an album. Some songs have guest vocals by Swinky, Sebastian Gullbrandson (Trombone) and san (antennasia).
The album is available digitally (on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, etc.), and otherwise as a CD which appears to be sold exclusively at CDBaby and Tower Records. The CD edition has an original wax seal on the front.
