Radio rip of "Ai ni Naranakatta no sa" (It Didn't Turn Out to Be True Love):




Also, as confirmed by RINA in her most recent blog, MIRROR will have songs featuring all of the band members on lead vocals!





Since a few fans transcribed the lyrics to the new song, I've gone ahead and translated them into English (there may be changes when the lyrics are officially out)

The official lyrics were released early on Jan. 12th. Here's the updated translation:

In an alternate universe this would be a hit in the country charts. It just needs a tiny bit of pedal steel.
Suppose you like going to a restaurant that makes a really good corned beef sandwich. It's the best corned beef sandwich you've ever had. But since tastes have changed, corned beef sandwiches don't sell as well as they did. People are eating healthier things like Poke Bowls. So your favorite restaurant starts selling Poke Bowls. They're good, but not why you've been going to that restaurant. In fact, you can go just about anywhere to get a Poke Bowl.
I kind of feel that way about this song.
On the other hand, the lyrics are really sweet and touching, and the arrangement will fit nicely with the others on the album I've heard so far.
I do hope this song attracts more fans, even if that encourages the band to write more songs like it. After all, if they don't make money, they might consider retiring, and nobody here wants to see that.

UPDATE: Turns out I like Poke Bowls.

@hogradish nailed it on the head for "Ai ni Naranakatta no sa."

I do like Mami's solo.  It's a bit different than what she typically has been playing.

Haru's current vocal style fits this one. It also has some interesting guitar work.

This new song (Ai ni Naranakatta no sa) sounds like a song from one or two of our modern local bands here in our country. It's really easy to listen to.

I can't specifically pinpoint a song but in terms of local artists/bands I could say a touch of the songs from Agsunta, Madeline (band), I Belong to the Zoo, or Ebe Dancel

I really like this song and I really like their "new" style.

I put "new" in quotes because I don't think they have lost their rock roots. (Take a look at the Best Christmas setlist.) Since they formed her, they seem a little more introspective, and they are bit older and seem to be putting more of life's bumps and bruises into their music. But this is not new, look back at "One Piece" or "Namida no Regret." Like all the best rock bands they've always recorded great ballads too. Maybe it's time for another anthem like "Place of Life." Or maybe something harder like "Queens Are Trumps" or "Hi Hi Hi."

I don't know what inspires them today or tomorrow, I can't imagine what music they will write in the future, but I know I will be here waiting and wanting to hear it. I am sure it will be different, and I'm sure somebody will lament, "Man, this isn't like the old stuff." But that's the whole point, no one is. 

I love this band!


And p.s.: Mami, are you OK? I would truly hate to be the love you left behind.

I have taken the liberty of loosely interpreting "It Didn't Turn Out to be Love" as a country song, with the appropriate country lyrics. In English.  I sincerely hope the excellent members of the Scandal Heaven Cover Band try this. I also hope you all (or y'all) try to sing it. It mostly fits, once you get the hang of it.

Well...I guess now is the time to finally give up hope for any heavier rockin' tunes appearing on there. Won't judge the songs themselves from such short snippets, but it sure sounds overproduced as heck. 
The more we learn about this album, the less I look forward to it.  RINA cry

To me, the snippets in the trailer don't give any real idea of the new songs. I guess a trailer is supposed to be an appetizer but this one doesn't work for me. I expect to like the album when we get to hear it anyway and happy to have pre-ordered it

I'm not excited about this trailer either, the music they want to make now just doesn't suit my taste at all. I understand and respect that they want to do something new to stay excited about making music ... but this time my expectations are pretty low, too much Dance / K-Pop music and synth sounds and not enough "rock" guitars for my taste.
However, I will listen carefully to the full songs because they spent a lot of time doing them in the studio.


So far I've only ordered the edition with the magazine translated to English (can't wait to read the interviews), I don't think I'll be ordering the Japanese editions this time around.

No trailer for me this time. Last time I wasn't so happy with the teaser snippets in Kiss from the darkness, this is why I pass this time. I like Rock Scandal but let's see what the girls serve us. I have no problems with dance music or eletronic influences, it needs to be catchy, though.
MAMI hmm

I think this is going to sound really odd to people, but as much as I like the older sound of Scandal, this album might be the one I listen to the most.
I can't wait for Legacy Hall. If Scandal plays "It Didn't Turn Out to be Love" the people there unfamiliar with the band, like the staff and stuff, are going to lose their, uh, shoes. At the chorus their heads will swivel around as they try to match what they're hearing to what they're seeing, ha ha.

It will be again definitely something new that we haven't heard from SCANDAL yet. Who ever doubted it? So I'm really looking forward new music!!! 
And hope this time FedEx will not let me down and quickly deliver package with CDs before the serial code for the concert wasted

I'm not particularly crazy about this dance trend they're now into (and I realize we are only getting the chorus for each of these songs), but based on the snippets, this album sounds more cohesive than their last one, KFTD.

Both ETERNAL and IVORY sounded better within the other songs in the trailer, and I'm not a major fan of either tune when they were released as singles.  I may actually enjoy listening to this album in full, but we'll see when it comes out.

Good bonus with the live show offering.  Still waiting for a vinyl edition to be announced before I pre-order; otherwise, I'll get the digital copy from iTunes.
