Having recently released her 11th studio album, "Rock'n'Roll Circus" this past April as well as a trilogy of singles afterwards, Ayumi Hamasaki is giving her fans yet another reason to jump for joy - her 12th studio album, "Love songs", will be hitting stores on December 22nd, just in time for Christmas!

"Love songs" will include 6 previously-released A-sides, plus 9 new songs, bringing the total to 15 tracks.

The album will arrive in 3 different formats: 'CD-only', 'CD+DVD', and 'microSD+USB+DVD+Photobook'. Ayu will be the first Japanese artist to release exceptional high quality versions of her songs on a USB stick; it's said that the sound quality of the USB tracks will be 278 times greater than that of a regular CD. Additionally, the DVD will include 3 newly-shot PVs, including one for"Last angel" from her latest single, "L".

That's not all though - on the very same day, Urata Naoya, leader of Avex pop group 'AAA', will be releasing a solo single featuring Hamasaki. "Dream ON" will be in stores alongside "Love songs" and is available in 2 editions, CD-only and CD+DVD. The entire single, including lyrics, PV, and CD art, were produced by Ayumi.
