Iwata Takanori (Sandaime J SOUL BROTHERS from EXILE TRIBE, EXILE) will release his first album "The Chocolate Box" on October 12.
The album will feature a total of 12 tracks including the three songs from his solo debut single "korekara" released last September. On the album, Iwata commented, "You don't know what to expect until you open the box - I aimed to create an album that will bring that type of excitement. A total of 12 songs - each with a concept and filled with my feelings. It's an album that serves as my personal greeting."
The album's limited edition will come with a Blu-ray disc containing music videos and footage from his fan meeting 'Takanori Iwata 1st Fan Meeting "Be My guest" -vol.0-', which was held last December at Blue Note Tokyo.
One of the album's tracks "Ready?" will be released digitally on August 26. It was written by Iwata with the image of a night drive. It has a speedy beat and a catchy melody that features the catch phrase "Take it easy." The single's jacket artwork was designed by Iwata himself.
In addition, Iwata will hold his first solo tour from November. You can check out the album details as well as the tour schedule below.
