It’s pretty cool to see a band, in this case HY, remain indie and onto their 5th album. “HeartY,” to be released on April 16, follows the album “Confidence” which was released about two years ago. The title of the new album is a play on the H and Y of their group name and the Japanese word ai which they translate here as heart. The 13-track album will be sold for ¥2,500 and come in five—FIVE of ’em—limited-edition versions for the store that it’s being sold at. While they do have an English version of their website available, updates to it are trickling in so keep your eye on it for future news on the band.
HY’s English-language single, “AM11:00,” is on-sale at the iTunes Store.
