Wakita Monari has a new single out this week! Her new funky jazz tune "Wingscape" was written and produced by COUNTJOKE (aka jōdan hakushaku, unit of Maezono Naoki and Arai Toshiya) (Facebook page) and features Smooth Ace on chorus! The B-side is a cover of CountJoke's own "LED" (single, which Monari had often been singing on stage for a while since her solo debut a year ago. Lyrics of the A-side were co-written by Monari, and "LED"'s lyrics were also tweaked just for her.
Several in-store events will be held, including ones at Tower Records Ikebukuro on release day November 22 from 19:00, at HMV record shop Shinjuku Alta on November 25 from 17:00, HMV record shop Shibuya on November 26 from 12:00, and at Tower Records Shibuya on November 30 from 21:00.
