Hajime Chitose releases new album in July

Hajime Chitose releases her fourth album, Cassini, on July 16, so says Oops Music. A limited edition first pressing includes a DVD with performances from the live album, Fuyu no Hainumikaze. Producers on the album include Sakamoto Ryuichi, Tokita Shintarou of Sukima Switch, Kanno Youko, Haketa Takafumi and — perhaps the oddest name in the bunch — the Chieftains. Yes, the traditional Irish band. Hajime’s next single, "Hotaruboshi", comes out two weeks earlier on July 2.

    Performances not from the live album, but from the live itself – her “fuyu no HAINUMIKAZE” concerts are an annual event she started in 2003; the DVD with “CASSINI” features the entire main concert held on 26th December 2007, the setlist of which is below:
