Charice’s 2nd Japan Album is Titled “Infinity”

Charice’s 2nd Japan Album is Titled “Infinity”

It’s been two weeks since the announcement that Charice’s second album in Japan will be released on October 5, 2011. And now, we have a title for this special Japan-only album: “Infinity”.

A fitting title, right? There’s just too much potential for Charice as she’s just starting on her path to world super stardom – her career has no specific high point in sight yet and the possibilities are infinite.

The album artwork is also great: simple yet striking. Charice is wearing a black and white printed scarf, a studded black fedora, a knitted off-shoulder top, and black leggings (the Japanese stylists really did an amazing job). A large infinity symbol in transparent white is also a great alternative to the normal text titles in most albums.

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

The order of the songs are not yet final, but at least we know what the songs are. Most likely, this track list will be very different from her U.S. edition sophomore album.

“Infinity” is available for pre-order at Amazon Japan for ¥ 1,980. The album will be available on October 5, 2011. Charice’s second album is currently in number 633 in Amazon’s Bestseller list, while it’s number 16 in the RnB category.

    I compared Cha to Mozart and this is why.

    Mozart was a prodigy with the ability to create music but only until he mastered playing instruments. He then became educated to learn and write music from talented mentors. This all began at around 4 years old and continuously progressed from then on.

    Charice’s progression is much different but I suspect her genius talent lies on her ability to absorb the subtle notes of what she hears in songs and gifted with a rare vocal anatomic structure which was discovered by her mother around four years old.

    I would add to the list a remarkable memory to render the songs she sings and what is more noteworthy is her ability to add creative value to the way she interprets them. Knowing what I learned from Mozart’s childhood is the ability to improve other composers’ work. He would listen to it once and he would play it back to his dad with a few or more altered notes that results to its heightened beauty. Eventually of course he opted to create his own pieces. Because he can and because there are stern people making sure that he does just that, such is the life of a prodigy during his time – hardly any playtime.

    Charice’s talent does not solely rely on her vocal ability but in the combination of how her brain absorbs music and how her vocal apparatus delivers them. The result is why people like us talk about her.

    I am sad that she was not afforded with similar support as Mozart did as a 4 year old. On the other hand, I’m glad that she is now enjoying the fruits of her labor considering the humble beginnings she has had.

    Now she’s 19 years old, that may be a problem as far as creating her own songs. I’m sure she can create melodies because she’s aware of her vocal range. But to write lyrics with emotion might require a strong command of the english language or even with tagalong as it is used today. Remember also, that the music of today is marred with all types of sounds that has separated listeners worldwide.

    Whereas, Mozart’s time in western europe, everyone was aiming for the same classical tune. I’m sure if Charice were to focus her efforts, she may well produce masterful pieces of her own. But from a practical stand point, I’m fine with masterful pieces from collaborative efforts from the best writers.

    Words in a song are just words, but what makes them explode is the instrument that sets them off. The instrument is Charice.

    I’m just a fan. Thanks for reading.

    Actually, I see two large eyes staring at me…whoever he or she is behind those blinders, is waiting for my move. Something has happened and there’s a tense situation…I need to act fast. Well, Charice, in the background in her balck outfit, sultry pose, and a pair of eyes to die for, is saying, “Don’t worry, Chaster…I’ve got it under control. I will never let any Chaster down.”…whoaaaaaa, what do you know? Charice saved me. Behind that diminutive frame, she has the strength of a steel and a heart made of gold. She is the ultimate person. Cha, you are Cleopatra, you indeed have ties to the Pyramid, you are eternal.

        The Japanese song will be the theme song for Play Station3 to be sold locally in Japan, while Charice’s song will be the theme song for those for sale internationally, except in locally-sold XBox-360 and in some Asian countries. These will be released this coming December.

        The report a;so said that Charice and Mai will be singing the same song, although the songs will be arranged differently.

          I’m a huge Final Fantasy fan, and a Charice fan as well, so you can just imagine how I practically bounced off the walls when I learned the good news on Umagang Kay Ganda. Boy, was that a good way to start the morning!

          Anyway, I thought having Charice sing for mind-blowingly popular JRPG series was just wishful thinking–I winced when Square Enix chose Leona Lewis’s My Hands as the English theme song for Final Fantasy XIII (I actually liked My Hands, it’s just a bad fit for the game. Square Enix explained they didn’t have enough time (and maybe budget?) to get the Japanese theme song translated and sung.

          Charice was only starting to get popular in Japan when FFXIII was released, and I had this crazy idea when I heard Kimi ga Irukara for the first time that she’ll be a good fit for it’s English version. FF theme songs have always been ‘birit’ songs. Easy peasy for Charice.

          Anyway. This news only makes me more excited to get Final Fantasy XIII-2!

    “What is this charge from yesasia?” (My husband asked me). I said, I ordered Charice’s Infiniti album and Hitman Returns with Charice in Mandalay. He smiled and kept quiet. He approves anything about Charice and of Charice. I am so happy for you Charice. We’re praying for your continues success.
