Tokyo Jihen Announce New Album, Tour Dates

Ringo Shiina and co.'s latest to drop on June 29

It's been a year and a few months since Tokyo Jihen's last album, Sports, hit Japanese shops. Now Ringo Shiina and her upbeat rock/jazz outfit have announced their next album, Daihakken (Great Discovery), for release on June 29.


The first single from the album, "Sora ga Narutteiru / Onna no ko wa Dare demo," makes its debut on May 11. The album will also reportedly feature new versions of "Tengoku e Youkoso" and "Dopamint!" among its 13 tracks. 


In addition to the album and single, Toko Jihen will also be embarking on a nationwide tour (sorry, fans outside of Japan) that's sandwiched between start and stop dates in Tokyo on September 30 and December 2, respectively.
