Morning Musume ’17 will release their new album 15 Thank you, too on December 6th.
As its title indicates, this is the 15th regular album of the idol group.
This album is the first by the idol group for 3 years, the first with the members of the 12th, 13th and 14th generations (integrated respectively in January 2015, January and June 2017) and the last with Kudo Haruka who will gradauate from Morning Musume ’17 in mid-December.
The title of the album is not chosen by chance! It’s a real game with numbers : “Thank you” is pronounced in Japanese “sankyuu” as the number 39, and “too” is pronounced as “two” (2): the two numbers summed to 41, the total number of group members integrated during these first 20 years. In addition, the addition of all the actual or phonetic numbers in the album title (1 + 5 + 3 + 9 + 2) gives 20, the age of the group.
Also, note that the limited edition cover of this album pays particular tribute to the first album of the group, First Time, released in 1998.
The CD will contain a total of 15 songs; you’ll be able to find the two singles awarded to “Morning Musume ’17” (such as Brand New Morning / Jealousy Jealousy et Jama Shinaide Here We Go! / Dokyuu no Go Sign / Wakaindashi!).
A new version of Joshi Kasimashi Monogatari (2004) is interpreted by the current members of the group.
You will also find the song Ai no Tane (20th Anniversary ver.) sung exclusively by current members for this album.
The Blu-ray of the limited edition will contain the video of the concert celebrating the 20th anniversary of Morning Musume, held on September 14th.
