And it finally comes to light that yui (the new spelling of her name) is going to debut this summer with her new band FLOWER FLOWER

here's the lineup of the band

Vo&Gt:yui (ゆい)
Key:mura☆jun (むらじゅん)
Ba:mafumafu (まふまふ)
Dr:sacchan(さっちゃん)

Spoiler:
YUI、5月にバンドで活動再開 金髪ショートで再出発!
YUI will restart her activities as a band in May! She sets off again with a new short blonde cut!

 昨年大みそかの歌番組出演をもって活動休止したシンガー・ソングライターのYUI(26)が、ロックバンド「FLOWER FLOWER」(フラワーフラワー)として活動を再開することが2日、わかった。ロングヘアをバッサリ切った金髪ショートヘアのYUIがボーカルを務める同バンドは、5月4日に東京・新木場STUDIO COASTで行われるロックフェス『Japan Jam 2013』で初お披露目される。
After going on hiatus after a performance on a music TV show last New Year's Eve, we found out on the 2nd that singer songwriter YUI (26) would restart her activities in the rock band "FLOWER FLOWER." Drastically cutting her long hair off, the now short haired blonde YUI, who is the main vocalist in the above mentioned band, will make the first official announcement at the rock fest "Japan Jam 2013," which will take place on May 4th in Tokyo - Shin-Kiba STUDIO COAST.

 活動休止前に「新たに挑戦したいことが見つかった」「“YUI”としての復帰は考えていない」と話していたYUIが、バンドで再出発する。自身が敬愛するミュージシャンに声をかけ、バンドを結成。今年に入ってからスタジオセッションを開始し、先月から全国数ヶ所でシークレットライブを行って準備を進めてきたYUIは「このメンバーで音を出したら音楽を純粋に楽しめると思った。それぞれのアイデアやプレイから新たな閃きや音楽の可能性が自然と広がってきている」と手応え十分の様子だ。
YUI, who has said things like "I've found something new that I'd like to challenge," and "I'm not thinking of making a comeback as 'YUI'," before her hiatus, is starting off again as a band. By calling out to the musicians that she herself respects and loves, the band was formed. From the start of this year, they started doing studio sessions and from last month, they started playing secret lives in various places across the country, and as she is steadily preparing (for their debut), YUI said "With these members, once we produce a sound together, I thought that I could genuinely enjoy music this way. With our different ideas and play styles, the potential of our insight and music just naturally expands." It seems like the results are extremely satisfying.

 バンド名は「気どってなくて自然な名前にしたかった。かっこいい名前はいくらでもあったかもしれないけど、あえて肩の力が抜けている、自然と入り込んでくる名前にしたかった。パワフルでおもしろい発想を自由に表現したい」という気持ちを込めて命名したという。
For the band name, she put in all her feelings of, "I wanted to pick a name that wasn't flashy, but was natural. There were probably a lot of cool names that I could've picked, but purposely, instead of doing that, I wanted to pick a name that seemed effortless and relaxing, and had a natural feeling injected into it. I want to express powerful and interesting ideas freely." and thus named the band what it is.

 同バンドは、5月4日の『Japan Jam』出演を皮切りに、同26日に東京・新木場の若洲公園で行われる『TOKYO METROPOLITAN ROCK FESTIVAL 2013』に出演することも決まっている。楽曲のリリースは現時点では未定。3日深夜0時に公式サイト(flowerflower-net.jp)が開設された。
Starting with the performance on May 4th, the band is also scheduled to perform at "TOKYO METROPOLITAN ROCK FESTIVAL 2013" which will be held on the 26th in Tokyo at Shin-Kiba's Wakasu Park.

here's the new link to her band.

it's a cover only, just imagine her voice Love

ENGLISH

If you were to die my breath will also stop
“Why? It’s not good”
You said with a worried face

Love is shapeless, but
in fact,
it leaves a lot of hints behind

Let’s live with unchanged smile
It’s alright even if we got crushed, let’s laugh

[REFF]
A world without you
has no meaning to me
and yet, you gently scolded me
as you used to do

If the world were to end tomorrow
I want to be loved
and tell him “thank you”

I might also forget how to love,
but I want to be by your side

Even if you turn to hate me
this feelings will not vanish
my feelings are overflowing
that it can’t be expressed with words

I will always love you
who look at my effeminate eyes
with your surprised-like face
You are my treasure

If someday I’m gone
you must live, properly...

I was quite sad when YUI was going on hiatus, but the I heard a rumors about FLOWER FLOWER.

Tried to search the web about this but not much can be obtained.

Can't wait to see them perform (although it is quite weird seeing YUI short blonde hair...I miss her long black hair)....

Thank Hawaii Fan for the info....

I was like full on laughing crying when I saw the photo... I seriously thought it was a dude if there was no description of her...

Short boy cut blonde hair was the last thing I'd sport YUI with... but anything can happen...
We'll see how they go :3

I really don't like her new hair, to be honest. I still prefer the simple and plain hairstyle for her. But I guess it is a way of introducing her new identity as part of this new band. Well a comeback isn't really that exciting if there is nothing new, I guess... But I still think she's gone too far with that new hairstyle Onion Cry I hope she will still bring back the old YUI style that we've known before. but whatever it is, still here to support her.

their band name reminds me of legendary girlband [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. Flower Flower is way better than basing the band name from its most popular member (like [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]) just hope that the rest of the band will be treated fairly and not merely as a support group

It's quite sad, but she's in the right age and as long as it makes her happy I'll be happy for her as well. I hope all the fans would understand and will keep their support. I also hope this will inspire her to continue making good music.

First good quality video is available on youtube: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

The encore song was not streamed but there's a lower quality self recorded version here: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] 

Maybe I want to hear things but it sounds like the encore song (kind of a party song) is in english but I can't figure out the whole lyrics just words.
