Jin Akanishi to release a new album both in Japan and in the U.S.
It’s been announced that Jin Akanishi’s first album, ‘JAPONICANA‘, will be released simultaneously in Japan and in the United States.
Due to time zone differences, the album will be available starting March 6th in the States, and on March 7th in Japan. It will also begin distributing in other countries through the iTunes Store. Though there will only be one edition for the U.S release, the Japanese edition will come in two versions: a CD+DVD limited edition and a regular edition, which will include a CD and a photo booklet. Of course, fans in Japan will also be able to purchase the imported version (U.S release version) as well.
Akanishi has also announced that he will be holding another North American tour starting on March 9th. He will be hitting up five cities in March, starting in Los Angeles and ending at San Francisco.
The tour schedule is as follows:
Friday, March 9th: Los Angeles, CA (Club Nokia)
Saturday, March 10th: Vancouver, Canada (Centre For Performing Arts)
Monday, March 12th: Honolulu, HI (Hawaii Theater)
Thursday, March 15th: New York, NY (Best Buy Theater)
Saturday, March 17th: San Francisco, CA (Warfield)
As reported earlier, Akanishi’s second digital single, ‘Sun Burns Down‘, is also scheduled to be released on January 24th in the U.S.
