This is my favorite Scandal song this year (yet)... Nice One I love it Mami-chan!

I can't wait for the PV.. And the singles cover... And the Nanai night as well..



Off topic: As much as I hate to open a Credit card, with this single, the Hello World Album plus the ticket in their World Tour, I'm out of options... My wallet is crying... White Flag

I'm really digging this new song. Its really catchy and I like all the riffs and pauses with the different instruments mixing in before Rina breaks into her drumming fill. 

I cannot wait to see the PV for this song, I can picture it being awesome.

Even with bad audio, the single sounds surprisingly good. Seriously, I was surprised. I don't know what's the inspiration for this song, but it's perfect to listen to when you are experiencing a bad day or something. 

I don't know but for me the sound is something new.

I'm predicting that this'll be my 2nd favorite single from them, slightly below Awanai. I hope the lyrics also has some inspirational feeling to it

SO GOOD, this is now my favorite song ever! hahaha I say that every time they release a new song. But I'm really loving this one. Mami has improved a lot writing songs, I'm so proud <3
I can't wait for the lyrics to be translated, and the PV is going to be so amazing.

The new song is awesome! I LOVE IT! If the new album is at the same level they might actually outdo themselves! Extra bonus for being a MAMI song.

I really like the melody, the riffs, the fills and Tomomi's bass playing is as awesome as I've come to expect from her. A driving, powerful song and the lyrics are pretty nice as well (the lines I could pick up anyway; my Japanese listening still sucks)

Wooo Its out!! Oh the morning of my maths exam! Tongue

Lovely composition there I must say. Though the prominence of Rina's snare was a little off putting... it quite loud, comparable to Haruna's voice.

I love it!!! This song is like all of the Scandal songs I love put together...this is just really good. Like I'm impressed. MAMI really has come along way, and her skills are mind blowing. The vocal were easy on the ears and the music was just amazing. The whole time, I kept repeating, "This is a really good song..." These girls are just too much for me, I love them. I need headphones to hear it the best you can with the low quality, but even without it, this song is one of my favorites already. And yes, it is very anime like.

I think I'm gonna like the direction "Image" and (possibly) "Hello World" are heading.

If this single has any promotional ties, I could see it getting fairly big.

Recently I heard the song, and I have to say, It's a wonderful song, seriously.
I noticed its pretty similar to some fall out boy's songs... Specially w/ hum hallelujah on the drums beats (I'm not saying its plaggio, so don't make a drama again), considering fob is an altern rock band...the song sounds to me like a altern rock gender.
Maybe it's a new music gender? J-Altern Rock?

Seriously, you can put this song among other fob's songs and it won't be a violent change of gender, what a beautiful song!

Firstly, please go easy on the emoticons. If you use too many your posts will start being marked as SPAM.

Secondly, your question doesn't pertain specifically to "Image," but CD Japan is a good place to get their releases:

^ Both, but first they're releasing the single titled "Image" on November and then, on December, there is an album titled "Hello World", and then, on The same month, starts The tour for the album.

But this thread actually is for the single, which is coming on November.

Here's a short lyric video for "Image" that was posted on SCANDAL's official YouTube. It's surprisingly viewable for people in the US!

Hm, or perhaps it's because they're going on their world tour soon and want to hold true to their HELLO WORLD title? It's only fair to the countries they're going to to be able to view content from the new album, after all!


Anyway, since the "Image" lyric video contains what I'm assuming to be the official lyrics, here's my translation of them.

Spoiler:
On the other side of a city on the verge of tears
A new life is born on the TV news
Everyone's celebrating and laughing
I believe even I can make a fresh start like this
Redoing and repeating isn't easy
So I'm a little worried, but deep down in my heart I hope tomorrow goes well
I can't stop, so I'll carefully imagine and wait for morning

A new me is there when I open my eyes
I can draw anything from here on
I can jump over anything when I step forward more lightly than usual with my well-worn shoes
The ideals I imagined are more difficult than reality
But a new start is always kicking off
