RINA's liner notes for "Futari," "Electric Girl," and "Koisuru Universe":
M8. Futari
No action has been taken even though you've known for a long time that you both have the same feelings; won't that disappear if you don't hurry? It's a song about a pair that provokes that while enjoying that time they share together. The lyrics for this came first. A lot of the lyrics came first this time
M9. Electric Girl
Wanting a thrilling song, we made a flashy one that's full of playfulness. After we finished recording track 8 was when the album title came to mind, and we tried including "sweet nectar" that was connected to the word "HONEY." We want to shout out the "Isse-no-se" part before the chorus with everyone - I really can't wait for our tour
M10. Koisuru Universe
A love song with a 120% degree of happiness that could even be played at a wedding ceremony. "A perfect universe in which we met you" who has chosen SCANDAL's music. This album "HONEY" is a work that we're proud of in 2018, the 10th anniversary of our major label debut, and one that closes with happiness. Thank you.

RINA's liner notes for "Short Short" and "Mado wo Aketara":
M6. Short Short
A strange tale that's shorter than a short story―a story of a girl who desires a love like a short short story. The mix of HARUNA's transparent vocals like meltwater with plenty of chorus work feels nice. Some of my favorite lyrics that were able to be written with good balance of words with a softness and sharpness to them
M7. Mado wo Aketara
This album was made mostly with songs that were written within the past year, but this song was written by TOMOMI three years ago. We're happy that the timing when we could have everyone listen to it finally came along. We've been really thinking strongly about making our ways of living into songs, and that we'd make our favorite music just as it is. Music that people can see is really enjoyable

『HONEY』 Liner Notes - Midnight City - Sat Feb 17, 2018 8:14 am

RINA's liner notes for "Midnight City":
M5. Midnight City
"Comparing myself to others makes me hate myself, and I can't speak sincerely to anyone―why am I like this?" Being attacked by loneliness and an inferiority complex means that you're the one who knows best that you can still do more, and that you can set high expectations for yourself. A song with a sweet and poisonous atmosphere to it, and one that features RINA on main vocals for the first time in a while

RINA is beginning to post album liner notes about the songs on 『HONEY』!
M1. Platform Syndrome
A title we coined that's attached to the image of giving a name to the sadness you feel the day after your heart's been broken. Even if you can't be positive, nor forcibly move forward when you're hurt, it's okay to let time take its course and progress at a different pace―that's I thought while writing this song. It feels like we were finally able to give shape to something that we had been wanting to do now
This was recorded with a sound feeling that I especially like. I like the connection to it from track 1, and it's a song that we'd like to grow at lives. I also recommend it to those in our cover bands because they're captivated by bands. A song about when a pair of lovers who have been seeing each for a long time and have already gone beyond love are about to become a couple, and one party makes a decision after seeing the future
M3. Take Me Out
With this song that was made after we returned from our world tour, it felt like we changed completely into HONEY mode starting from this single. A killer tune that we can proudly take along with us anywhere, such as festivals and events, and one that we all cultivated at our live shows.
M4. Oh! No!
Falling in love isn't actually the most important thing for a girl; isn't it more fun to love yourself and shine on? This nonsensical song that's very MAMI-like has those feelings that overlap with a rapidly changing rhythm. It's fun listening to MAMI's vocals filled with nuances, and she'll probably sing with a different approach at live shows, so I have great expectations

Going on a day trip drive with friends to get away from it all for a bit while being heartbroken day after day, and living positively each day. A song where a Sunday like that is given a Motown beat! 〈TOMOMI〉

A song packed with the relaxed band atmosphere while on our world tour last year. It's not too much to say that we were able to complete 『YELLOW』 by completing this song. 〈HARUNA〉

M1. Room No.7
Topics tagged under linernotes on  HJl36XO

An instrumental song--our first one-- that opens 『YELLOW』. It's a funky, edgy track! The title comes from this being our seventh album, thus "No.7". 〈HARUNA〉

I'll be posting translations here accordingly as the band posts them!

『STANDARD』 Liner Notes - Fri Oct 04, 2013 7:35 am

It might be too soon to ask this since it looks like most people are still waiting for their copies, but has anyone gotten a signed sticker in their Regular Edition of STANDARD? In case you weren't aware, they randomly included individually signed stickers in the RE, and that edition only.


RINA is tweeting liner notes about each of the tracks.
M1. Brand new wave
We wanted to make a dance number that had danger and sharpness to it. TOMOMI was tweaking the lyrics all the way until we started recording. We made this track 1 after much agonizing. That's why the order of the songs is a gradation that goes from glittery to rocky. The CM song for ITO EN's 「Stylee Sparkling」 drink
A song that the 4 of us sing on. We had Yasutaka Nakata produce it. It's a song that we've sung on TV a lot too while wearing red jumpsuits. Chatmonchy happened to be working at the same studio when we were recording it, and we were given a watermelon picked from Ecchan's parents' home. Needless to say, it was delicious.
M3. Uchiagehanabi
A simple message: 「I love you」. I'm glad we're now able to sing a song like this. We recorded it at its best state while repeatedly updating the chorus's melody. It's a song that ends with the same sequence as in the beginning. We changed it to HARUNA's idea of having it suit our ages. The best
M4. Orange Juice
Without deciding on a title in final stages of recording, we left the studio for a change of pace. Getting back a few minutes later, TOMOMI, orange candy in hand, said 「Do you think "orange juice" or "mikan" is better?」 Those were two great selections. Although it's a word that isn't in the lyrics, if there was a flavor to this song, there's no doubt this is it. A war of a girl's love
M5. Metronome
This is THE most SCANDAL-ish song. Our axis is here. That's why it's okay to not worry about whatever happens, and not to think about unnecessary things. I hope we'll continue to be a band that does many things. It was made while imagining a live! On this song, the drums took the longest time to recordー. It's cool. Let's jump when we say 「jump!」!
M6. Weather report
A love where you can quarrel and still believe 「I'm definitely going to marry this person.」 is fascinating and beautiful. But, it's not about growing up, naturally choosing conversations, and the person you'll be with for life. Knowing that, I think we are able to to choose a love that has a time limit. It's a song that's like love that's cloudy even if it's sunny or raining.
M7. Hachigatsu
We formed on 8/21. It's the only song on this album where we sing about ourselves. HARU didn't show us the lyrics until they were complete, and this is the finished version. We pulled out MAMI's demo from 2 years ago and it finally took shape. It's a letter from the members to the members, and a message from the 4 of us to everyone. It seems we might sing it for a while
M8. Awanai Tsumori no, Genki de ne
Since we started this year with this, the word "STANDARD" came to mind for an album title, and we wanted to make a work that fits live venues and could be BGM that suits each day. This song makes ours lives even flashier. I want you to watch the music video
M9. Kagen no Tsuki
A single where we made the covers and PV quite to taste. Lately, I've been really attracted to songs that have a bewitching atmosphere. Personally, I think that this is most radio-friendly song that we have. There really is a power that comes from listening to a single on an album. How is the intro this cool
M10. Koi no Gestalt Houkai
Wanting to do a crazy song that can be shared at lives, we did the lyrics and arrangement as such. Since the songs I've written up until now are mainly middle ballads with serious lyrics and sweet songs, I tried breaking it. We recorded breaths in the interludes and tried to violently shake the sound side to side. It's interesting when you listen to it with headphones in. The joy and feeling of disappointment when the person you longed for turns around
M11. Kimi to Mirai to Kanzen Douki
We went on a trip to Las Vegas shortly before making this, and we were really moved by the entertainment we saw there. We also experienced things we didn't know about yet. It's a song that we did right after a new essence entered our bodies and minds. A slightly different flashiness and poppiness comes out in it. Thrils and suspense we don't want to forget
M12. Namida yo Hikare
An up-tempo song that unconditionally raises the excitement. Our first punk song. It was made with a very simple musical performance and lyrics. But, singing this is the most important. Everyone wants to dance at lives. In a happy feeling. I think this is the easiest song to cover on this album
While on tour, we did the arrangement during rehearsals and wrote the lyrics while at hotels. Because we wrote it during the time we were seeing all of you, it's full of a live show-feeling. It's the title track and it's something we made seriously, but it feels a little different. Music, firstly, needs to be fun. This was it! Its provisional title was 「A Song That's Only In My Head」. Let's all shout out together
