Digital Single - 「恋するユニバース」
Koisuru Universe




SCANDAL will be releasing their first digital-only single, Koisuru Universe (恋するユニバース; "A Universe In Love"), on October 22nd from 12 am JST via various music distribution sites!






From SCANDAL's Twitter:


On 10/22 (Sun.) we will be releasing our first digital-only single Koisuru Universe!!

The tracklisting will be announced at a later date, but in addition to the title song, one more new song + several live songs from yesterday's show at Billboard Live OSAKA are scheduled to be included! Look forward to it!


Also:


By the way, "Koisuru Universe" is a hard live number that you couldn't guess from the title. Coming soon!






「恋するユニバース」
Koisuru Universe


Release Date
             October 22, 2017

Tracklisting
             01. Koisuru Universe (恋するユニバース; A Universe In Love)
             02. Futari (ふたり; The Two of Us)
             03. Kimi to Yoru to Namida (Billboard Live OSAKA 2017.08.21)
             04. Koe (Billboard Live OSAKA 2017.08.21)






Here's how to purchase and/or stream "Koisuru Universe" if you're outside of Japan.

Edit: The single should be available to buy on iTunes Stores, Amazon, and Google Play worldwide!

Spoiler:
1) Pre-order the single through iTunes Japan


By pre-ordering the entire single (1,000 yen), you get to download the title track "Koisuru Universe" right away, and will be able to download the other 3 songs when the single officially releases on October 22nd. Or, you can just buy "Koisuru Universe" for 250 yen. In order to do so:

■You're going to need an iTunes Japan account first of all, which is the most difficult part.

If you have an Apple device (iPhone, iPad, Mac), the easiest way to do so is to follow these directions (if you don't have an Apple device, this unfortunately will not work for you, as you need to be able to access Apple's App Store). If you don't have an Apple device or it's not working for you, the easiest way might be to have a shopping service such as FromJapan set up an account + buy the single for you.

■Once you have your iTunes Japan account, you'll need an iTunes Japan gift card to buy the single. Although some stores are sold out of 1,000 yen cards right now, some options include:

-SEA Gamer
-Japan Code Supply
-Japan Codes

■Once your gift card is purchased and you're e-mailed the code, redeem your code on your iTunes account and simply buy the single.


Also: It's possible that the single will be added to international iTunes stores after the release date and you can just buy it how you normally would on your own iTunes store.



2) Stream it via Spotify Japan


It's region-locked to be streamed in Japan only, so in order to listen it you'll need to connect to a Japan VPN (here's a good one), sign up for a Spotify Japan account, log in to Spotify on the app or desktop program, and search for "SCANDAL 恋するユニバース".



3) Purchase "Koisuru Universe" (song only as of right now) via Amazon Japan



"Koisuru Universe" is up on Amazon Japan to purchase as an mp3 download. This might or might not work, but if you decide to attempt it, make sure you read this first.

If you're willing to wait until release day, the single will then most likely be up for people to purchase worldwide. Watch this page and/or sign up for e-mail alerts for new releases.



4) Have a shopping service purchase the song and/or single for you



If all else fails, you can ask a shopping service such as FromJapan or Rinkya to buy it for you. Sign up for an account, go to their custom order page, explain what you want, and they should be able to get it for you.

Also: "Koisuru Universe" is also available to buy on other sites such as mysound, mora, or Recochoku (they're higher quality as well at 320kbps, compared to 256kbps on iTunes or Amazon). A shopping service will be able to get them for you. FLAC may also be available on Recochoku when the single is out.

Freaking finally!!!!

I was waiting for this so long!

Hope they upload the single to spotify 

Will only be one song or there will be b-sides?

also, why a digital single? because CD sales are not that high anymore?

Wow,  good amount of Firsts for Scandal this year, first 47 per nation wide tour,  first time at two summer festivals, first artists in Story Tellers, first joint band tour,  and now this.  They're trying new things that's for sure.

And Hooray!!!!. Finally new songs Dies, it's sounds like it could be a cool song. Maybe Rina wrote it. 
Happy

It certainly sounds like there will be more than one song, since they said they'll announce the tracklisting at a later date. If it was just the title song, they would have announced the tracklisting at the time of this announcement.

They haven't said why it's a digital one, but it's probably because they've been so busy and don't have the proper amount of time needed to put out a physical single. They also may not have finished the B-side(s) yet.

It could be a marketing move they haven't exploited yet: release the new single in a digital format with no indication that physical product will exist; and then once the digital sales start to die down, release the physical product with an extra song or some other previously unreleased bonus.  This way you get people to buy the product twice.

BTW, I have been purchasing all my Scandal digital albums and singles from Amazon.  This new single will probably be available there, but on a slightly different release date than in Japan.

I'm really glad Koe acoustic is up there, tho I personally would liked a couple more songs up there, but eh cant win them all lol
Futari, sounds like it might be a pop/ballad type song, but only time will tell.

I wonder if the price for this single is gonna be different from there usually physical copy singles.  It doesn't have any special editions(as far as I know) or bonuses or anything so it might be a bit cheaper.

It'll definitely be cheaper since they don't need to account for the costs attributed to releasing a physical disc.

Comparing this to the Haruka single that also contains 4 songs, it's looking to cost around $3.96 USD for the entire single. Haruka is that price on both iTunes US and Amazon US (oddly enough, though, it costs 1,000 yen/$9 on iTunes Japan).

4$ are ok for 4 songs, but 9$ aren't.

Will the songs that are recorded from live performance, Kimi to Yoru to Namida and Koe, have the background noise cut out ?(the noise made by the people in the hall).

Do Amazon provide 320 Kbps MP3 or high quality FLAC for download ?  If yes and I like Koisuru Universe and Futari this may by the first songs pack I buy from Scandal.
