Kyary Pamyu Pamyu’s brand new single is entitled Iisuta (良すた) or simply Easter in English. Just as the title suggests, the song is about easter.
This is already her 14th single. As noted by Moshi Moshi Nippon (もしもしにっぽん), this is Japan’s first Easter party song. The song will be used as a campaign jingle for AEON (イオン)’s “Let’s start EASTER PARTY” commercial. Kyary Pamyu Pamyu will also appear in the said ad.
Easter is another song produced by Yasutaka Nakata (中田ヤスタカ) just for Kyary Pamyu Pamyu. It is a song that welcomes spring season and signifies the very essence of beginning the new season with positive vibes. The word Easter came from the goddess Eostre, whom Kyary will portray in colorful clothing in the commercial.
In the ad, you will see Kyary celebrating Easter with children with bunny ears in a very vibrant background. You can also see Kyary dancing with the kids to the tune of Easter. The commercial is airing from March 17th. A video clip that will show the choreography of Easter will also be uploaded on AEON’s special website for “Let’s start EASTER PARTY” on the same day.
The single will come in two editions. One is the limited edition featuring a CD and a photo book while the regular edition will only contain the CD. The CD will include five tracks.
First is the title track Easter, then a coupling song entitled Todoke Punch (とどけぱんち). There is also an extended mix of Sai & Co (最&高), and instrumental versions of the songs Easter and Todoke Punch. The limited edition will cost 1,800 yen while the regular edition will cost 1,200 yen.
Concert Blu-ray and DVD
Not only will Kyary Pamyu Pamyu release a brand new single, but also a concert Blu-ray and DVD entitled KPP 5iVE YEARS MONSTER WORLD TOUR 2016 in Nippon Budokan (日本武道館), which will also be released on April 5. The first press limited edition will include VR glasses that you can use as you watch the concert! The regular edition will only include the Blu-ray or DVD.
6th Tour 2016 COSMIC EXPLORER Blu-ray and DVD
Another electronic pop act called Perfume will also release a Blu-ray and DVD on April 5 2017! The concert entitled Perfume 6th Tour 2016 COSMIC EXPLORER will contain the dome edition, standing edition and a digest of their North American tour in 2016. The limited editions will contain three discs that will feature bonus footage from Perfume’s concert.
Perfume also just released a brand new single in February 2017 called TOKYO GIRL.
TOKYO GIRL was also used as a theme song for Yoshitaka Yuriko (吉高由里子)’s starring drama Tokyo Tarareba Musume (東京タラレバ娘).
Perfume of Perfume
It’s about time that Perfume released their own fragrance! The band’s Perfume of Perfume was released for a limited time in Amuse Inc.’s web store A!SMART (アスマート). Now it will be available for purchase in select Isetan (伊勢丹) stores in Japan! However, unfortunately, the product cannot be purchased by overseas fans since perfumes cannot be shipped abroad.

You may purchase Kyary Pamyu Pamyu and Perfume goods from Tower Records (タワーレコード), Tsutaya (ツタヤ), and HMV (エイチエムブイ) in Japan. If you’d like to shop online, Amazon Japan, CDJapan and HMV Japan are good choices as well.
I’m so excited to hear the full version of Kyary Pamyu Pamyu’s song, Easter. I already saw the commercial and it sounds lively. It also gives a very refreshing vibe that is perfect for the spring season! I’m hoping to buy both the single and concert DVD when it’s released.
I also cannot wait to watch Perfume’s COSMIC EXPLORER concert. I’ve seen the footage from WOWOW TV and I can’t wait to watch the full version! I’m also saving up to buy the limited edition DVD.
