New album “Adan Ballet” artwork and tracklist revealed with Cocco’s message!!

Cocco has revealed her new album “Adan Ballet” artwork and tracklist together with her message.

【Cocco’s message】
Ever since I heard stories about people who survived the WWII by sheltering themselves in bushes of sharp-spined adans, “Adan” has been engraved in my Okinawan heart as a symbol of the survival.
I grew up long ago before I knew it, and I’ve unintentionally became a survivor.
The album “Adan Ballet” is created by a survivor for survivors.
I dedicate this album to all survivors who live in the present.

New album “Adan Ballet” will be released in two types of packages; in first-press limited version and in original version.

First-press limited version package of the album includes 56 pages photobook which compiles Cocco selected behind-the-scenes pictures of the recording sessions, exclusive photos taken at Cocco’s old school in her home town Okinawa, plus the latest artist images. The behind-the-scenes recording session pictures were taken at a studio in Tokyo, which you can catch Cocco in relaxed mood, as well as her lively recording scenes with her band members.

In addition to that, the photobook includes the pictures of hand-written lyrics of all tracks.
And the artwork of the album is also handwritten by Cocco herself.

Actually, the character is an illustration of the front face of Cocco elephant (no ears)! “It’s funny that it looks like a tadpole!” (by Cocco), and so it is scheduled that Cocco elephant in various expressions will appear in goods lineups in the future. The small and simple print in front blends well with the stripes, and the huge Cocco elephant face (no ears) print is located on the back. Don’t miss this very kawaii, funny and eye-catching tee!

The exclusive interview article will appear on Papyrus Vol.56 (28 August release).

---------------------------------------------
Cocco will be releasing “Plan C”, the first album in four years.
It’s a great album that songs sound gentle, yet in lyrics, you would find her deep and profound world which is there like lying secretly under water where even light can’t reach.
During the last four years, Cocco eagerly worked on both music and non-music works such as appearing in films and on stages, and writing essays.
And now what’s in her mind as an artist? With what kind of feeling had she made the album?
“I’m thinking that maybe I had spent enough time on center stage”
It’s the exclusive interview with Cocco revealing her honest feeling at the moment.

The theatrical play “Les circonstances de Gilsé” is written and produced by Maruichiro Maruo from popular theater company ”Gekidan Shika goroshi”. Cocco had dreamed of becoming a ballerina, and the story is based on Cocco’s beloved classic ballet “Giselle”. The set of the play is in modern day in Tokyo, and it’s a drama with singing and dancing pieces.

●Comment from Cocco regarding starring a play for the first time
I am establishing a carrier as a singer, but I’ve grown up watching my grandfather acting on Ryuku drama stage.
Living in inevitable movement of life, I have always believed that I would perform on the stage someday and now I’m given the chance. I feel like dancing to my excited heartbeat.
This will be the first time for me to be on the theatrical play since “White Snow” stage in nursery school, but why am I not scared.
Now, I’m on the start line.
I would try my best on my stage as an Okinawan with my strong nerves of steel.
Looking forward to see those of you who always support me, and also those of you who will meet soon for the first time.
