Two Hello! Project shuffle unit “singles” titled Compilation Single A & B (tentative titles) have been announced.
The first single, Compilation Single A, will feature Tanpopo #, Pucchimoni V, and Shin Mini Moni and it will come in two versions – Regular (CD) and Limited (CD + DVD). The second single, Compilation Single B, will also come in Regular (CD) and Limited (CD + DVD) versions and it will feature High-King, ZYX-a, Aa!, and Zoku Biyuuden.
Each “single” will feature new songs, instrumentals, as well as a bonus track. The new songs will be one for each group, although it isn’t clear whether the bonus track will feature only one group or all of them (most likely all of them).
It’s great that we are getting more shuffle unit releases since the only release they have had was on the Pucchi Best 10 album, and even then it only featured 5 groups out of the current 7 shuffle groups (Zoku Biyuuden and ZYX-a didn’t get a release).
The mention of new songs as well as bonus tracks is interesting since it might mean completely new songs and if that is the case there is the slight possibility of there being some PVs for the songs, especially with the DVD that will be included with the Limited versions, which would be great since we have only had a chance to see them perform in concerts.
Even though we don’t have that much information about this new release it will be interesting to see the tracklist as well as the covers, and if we are lucky we might get a chance to see some PVs on the DVD included with the Limited versions (although there is a chance that it only has concert performances or other extras).
This “single” hasn’t been officially confirmed but hopefully it is since I would really like to hear more songs from the shuffle groups, as well as a unique shuffle release.
The release date is set for 6/30.
