Pop singer Goto Maki, who recently announced that she will be going on hiatus from the entertainment industry after the end of the year, is still giving it her all. After releasing a new digital single, "What is LOVE/SCANDALOUS", she has just revealed the details for her first full-length album with avex entertainment, "Aikotoba (VOICE)".

"Aikotoba (VOICE)" will be released on November 2nd, and will feature 3 different versions of the album. The album is planned to have 15 tracks total, including the lead songs from her previous 3 mini-albums and the popular ballad "Hanauta -hanauta-". In addition to the CD-only release, the CD+DVD version will have a DVD comprised of all of her PVs since transferring to avex, including the previously unreleased video for "Queen Bee with BIGGA RAIJI" from the SWEET BLACK feat. MAKI GOTO project.

The Limited Edition Box will offer a number of special items. The first unique item is a special book of 15 postcards featuring images photographed in Kabukicho, Shinjuku last winter. Previously considered to be too shocking for release, the pictures feature Maki styled in the images of Lady Gaga and Madonna, set against racy backdrops such as pachinko parlors, love hotels, and host clubs. Combining the talents of enthusiastic young Japanese creators with the creative direction of Lady Gaga's stylist, Nicola Formichetti, it's sure to be a must-see.

As well as the album CD and PV DVD from the other releases, the Limited Edition Box will also include two more discs. The "Collabo-Works Disc" CD will feature all of Maki's project and collaboration songs that were released between her joining avex and her re-debut under the name "Goto Maki". The "Making Movie Disc" DVD will be a special disc containing behind-the-scenes and making-of footage of various works, including the aforementioned Kabukicho photoshoot, as well as the filming of her newest PVs. All four discs will feature picture labels, and will be collected in a special collector's box. With all of these extras, the box will definitely be a wonderful memorial item for any Goto Maki fan!

The 3 versions of the album are priced at 3150 yen ($40), 4200 yen ($53), and 7665 yen ($97) respectively. Which version would you be interested in buying? Let us know in the comments!
