Charice’s Sophomore Album in Japan to be Released October 5, 2011

Charice’s Sophomore Album in Japan to be Released October 5, 2011

This piece of news might surprise a lot of people since most artists based in America release their albums first there, and then when it’s successful, release it in other countries.

But remember that Charice is Asian, so that might have been a big factor in the way that she has become so famous in Japan – so famous that Warner Japan is building on this popularity and releasing her second album just a year after her debut.

Charice in "Sukkiri!"

A deciding factor in her early Japan release might be the beautiful single, “Far as the Sky”, which is the theme song of the hit Japanese TV drama, “Bull Doctor”. Coupled with the popularity of the drama and Charice, her second album might just beat her debut’s platinum sales record.

The release date of Charice’s sophomore album was announced during her August 9 appearance on NTV’s morning show, “Freshen Up!” or “Sukkiri”. The early Japan release of her album is scheduled on October 5, 2011, though the album is still untitled to this date.  Thee 11-track album is now available for pre-order at a price of ¥1980 (about $26). You can reserve and pay for your copy here.

825 Charices Sophomore Album in Japan to be Released October 5, 2011

The Platinum Debut Album of Charice (Japan Edition)

The tracks included in her second album are:

Far As The Sky
Louder
New World
Before It Explodes
Lost The Best Thing
One Day
Never Always
Bounce Back
Lighthouse
Lesson For Life
Living It Up

Based on this article from HMV.com, this album is a special Japan-only album. If that’s true, then this is not actually the same as Charice’s sophomore album that will be released in early 2012. For sure, the singles that she released like “Louder”, “Lost the Best Thing”, and “Before It Explodes” will still be included in her 2nd US album, but could be accompanied by other songs.

It’s still not clear whether Charice’s sophomore album is already this early Japan edition, but it could be similar, maybe without the “Far as the Sky” song. It’s highly possible that Charice would really release her album first in Asia, as she said in this interview with ology.com:

So what are you working on right now?

Actually it’s my day off right now, but this week I am going to fly to Japan to promote my album. And I am going to be there for a few days, finish my album that is coming out this fall, and then I am going to do an Asian tour.

Great. Do we have a date yet?

We don’t have a date yet, but it is definitely going to be the fall. It is going to come out in Asia first then here.

There’s not much info yet for her U.S. album. Charice has revealed two dates for her album release: Fall 2011 and Early 2012. To avoid major disappointment, just expect the her second album to drop in the first quarter of 2012 – and this is the most believable date since Charice said this in her latest interview at the Teen Choice Awards 2011.

    I think her team are still looking for a top 40 pop single for radio play here in the states before releasing the album here. I just wish it would be sooner.

      Alex. *One Day* is definitely good enough for a single. I hope they play it on the air

        I like One Day, but I think it’s owned by Acuvue and not by Warner Music. They can’t use it as a single.

      Copy the link provided above then Google the link. Once you see the link in the results, click Google translate. If you use Google Chrome (I don’t have that) as your browser, it will be easier (according to MagnusToday).

      Similar to other sites, you have to create an account when placing an order. Ignore the other promotions like points, etc. (it’s easier for me). The site will verify your email address. Once verified, you can continue shopping.

      I didn’t complete my order as I’m not sure of the link as I got the link from the comment section of an earlier charicemania article so I was thinking that it was not an official link. My intent back then was to know the total price. The cost, for my location, is $40 (includes shipping, no taxes as my state does not charge sales tax; I don’t know if that price included Japan taxes as it did not mentioned any.). HTH

          Yes, as noted above in the article, that’s the Yen amount you have to pay if you live in Japan. In the US, it would be like double that amount because of *overseas* shipping. I just converted the total Yen amount to US dollars as I live in the US. If it’s made in USA, it wouldn’t be that much. Typically, 10 to 15 dollars like her debut album sold in Target/WalMart. But we love Charice. :-)
