The catch-phrase for the upcoming album is "Our footprints are ahead of us", and there will be 4 different types.

Limited edition Type-A (2CD+1DVD), regular edition Type-A (2CD), Type-B (2CD), and theater edition (1CD). 




Reportedly, 15 new songs have been written for the album. There will also be many unit songs. For instance, a song called "Boy Hunt no Houhou Oshiemasu" is sung by AKB48's Shimazaki Haruka, SKE48's Kizaki Yuria, NMB48's (and AKB48) Yagura Fuuko, and HKT48's Sashihara Rino

It was also revealed that the DVD (approximately 90 mins long) which will come with a limited edition Type-A, will contain all 257 members' "air handshake event" footage in which the viewers can experience as if they are attending the handshake event.


AKB48's 5th album "Tsugi no Ashiato" is set for release on January 22.

Is it just me or does that cover look very similar to Morning Musume's latest best album cover?

I hope there are new MVs in the DVDs. The cover looks like Yume no Kawa's MV.
