Preview Girls’ Generation’s New J-Pop Album, ‘Love & Peace’
K-Pop Kweens Girls’ Generation already released a fantastic Korean studio album this year called I Got A Boy — but why stop in one territory?
Next week, the nonstop nonuplets will release Love & Peace in Japan, the follow-up to 2012’s Girls & Peace. (J-Pop record title creativity? Not their strongest suit.)
The collection includes their past three Japanese singles “Love & Girls,” “Galaxy Supernova” and “My Oh My,” as well as a bunch of new tracks, including “Motorcycle,” which just dropped today. It might take a listen or two, but it’ll click — that stomping chorus is a killer. C’mon, bebe!
But wait, there’s more! An album sampler, to be exact.
Judging by the new tracks, the album sound rill promising so far: There’s the glitchy, frantic electro-opener “Gossip Girls,” (which reminds me of Koda Kumi‘s “But”). “Flyers” sounds like an instant TV/movie theme song just waiting to happen, “Lips” is a fun throwback-turned-modern ’90’s Ariana Grande moment (and a little bit BoA — OBSESSED with this one), “Karma Butterfly” sounds like slick, sophisticated dance floor thumper and “Everyday Love” sounds like a major electro-R&B Ryan Tedder-esque midtempo ballad.
Good stuff. Get it, girls!
‘Love & Peace’ will be released on December 10. (iTunes)
