Jump to life: Perfume - Spring Of Life, Doumoto Tsuyoshi - Shamanippon - Rakachinotohi, Claris - Birthday & more!

Perfume burst forth with new music for everyone this season. The beat is like the bubbles in sparkling wine. Tangy and a little heady, the techno pop sounds bring forth the energy in an icy cool way.

They signed with Universal Music in 2012, and this is not only their first single released this year, but a new start under a new label. This year, they are setting their sights on the global music scene.

Their music producer Nakata Yasutaka uses the girls' voices as instruments. Instead focusing on storytelling with the lyrics and the meaning behind the words, he pays more attention to their sounds. And so their songs appeal to the senses in a more direct way.

The CD+DVD version includes the music video Spring of Life. Watch the girls dance and see how they tell their story through visuals:

It's been three years since Dohmoto Tsuyoshi released a solo album. His newest Shamanippon brings you a series of songs that connects the past with the future. Living in the present is one of the themes. And the strength of humans is another.

The present is created by people of the past through their strength and the future is what we create for the next generations. Dohmoto Tsuyoshi seeks to show this flow of time through his music. From the hi-tech techno to the soft and mellow sounds, the album tells the story of changes in an artistic way.

Their Limited Edition Type A comes with instrumental music clips and the Rakachinotohi Shapomentary clips. Type B comes with the music video clip of Kuni no Uta and the Shapomentary of Kuni no Uta.
