there wasn't any bonuses unless you entered the fundraising.
Oh yeah. That one. Shame I didn't try to take part in that one, haha!
I think my brain is trying to lock that memory away from my conscious mind.
I wasn't sure if I was gonna get it, but after this preview I have to.
Eh, no physical release?
There is, but it only seems to be available from jp retailers. Amazon JP have it though and you can order it to your country through that... Either way at midnight it'll be available through streaming anyway.
Edit: it's on Spotify/Streaming! I'm five songs through and Kozi's track... Brings a certain song to mind But I enjoyed it.
Thanks for the tip. Bought it from Amazon.
Also threw in "Matina 20TH ANNIVERSARY MEMORIAL CD 「RARE TRACK COLLECTIONZ」" 20th anniversary memorial and it only has one cd and it's not even that long. Lol. Good deal.
Who did which tracks?
Közi was responsible for the Wink cover, and it honestly surprised me how it really brought back his circus influences. Had a big 月下の夜想曲 touch to it, and some small nuances that slightly reminded me of his first solo album.

Yeah, track 4 had a real je te veux / gekka feel with the whimsical/carnivalesque influence.
I'm not familiar with many of the originals, any actually apart from 'hymne l'amour' so I can't comment on whether they're 'true' to the originals or good covers. But for those who want to dive in and out, tracks 1-4 are maybe more typical of solo Kaya, 5, 6 and 7 are two slower paced tracks, 8 to 10 are rockier, harder tracks, and the last two are slower.
I'm still getting to grips with it, but my favourites are 4, 5, 8 and 12. I think if you wanted to show a friend what a vocal powerhouse kaya can be, this would be the record to send them.
The song that Kozi did is amazing! Literally is a MM song! Love it!!! (I know is a cover and the original song sounds like MM but the song is older than MM so Kozi copy Wink back in the day xD)
Keep your ears open for the 'Ju te veux' and 'ILLUMINATI' callbacks in Kozi's arrangement.
Overall a pretty fun cover album even though I was only vaguely familiar with about half of the tracks.
My copy should arrive on monday...
Mi Amore is the only one I know, and it's my fave Nakamori song...so he was doomed from the get go on that one lol
No Kaya calendar for 2020?
Dun dun dunnn. A new calendar! But only on the Japanese store :/
And my one-man show here continues...
I got the 2020 Kaya calendar in mail! White Rabbit is a pretty fast service, I must say.
Some activity on Kaya's YT channel!
Sadly not a new single, though
Has anyone mentioned the new LINE stickers of Kaya that went up recently (I think recently, anyway)
I think they're pretty cute! Although I do wish he went a more Yu~ki route and had an illustrator draw some up.
... I don't think I've ever seen photographic Line stickers before. Isn't that actually against the rules? XD
I don't .. think so? I've seen them here and there. Some Kpop groups have some and good ol' Pikotaro has a set that sings the PPAP song...
Personally, I prefer the cartoon/illustrated variety but I guess WHATEVER SELLS
