I will surely remember it when spring comes. Seven spring poems. Nisshoku Natsuko's 6th Mini Album "Hanayodo" will be released on April 5th (Wednesday) & new artist photos released!

Piano singing artist Natsuko Nisshoku has announced that she will release her 6th mini-album "Hanayodo" on April 5, 2023 (Wednesday).

This work, which will be released for the first time in about a year, is not necessarily bright and gorgeous, but that's okay. Completely different from the previous work "Mimesis", which was sprinkled with metaphors and traps everywhere, the result is a melancholy yet soft conceptual spring work full of straight thoughts and sounds. Continuing from the previous work, we would like to pay attention to various arrangements including collaborations with Asian artists.

The artist photo released at the same time as the release announcement was taken by photographer Kenta Aminaka. Sophisticated visuals with a natural and emotional atmosphere are finished to expand the world view of the work.

Pre-orders for the CD have started today. Benefits will also be available for reservations made by February 19 at the target corporate store. Please check it out.

— Solar eclipse Natsuko’s comment —
I have lived thinking that spring is not the season of encounters, but the season of parting.
Everyone is buoyed by the cheerfulness of spring, budding new premonitions, and set off on a journey with the lukewarm wind blowing. Yes, we do that every year.

I suddenly felt like I wanted to claim that it was my own kind of spring.
Torn, muddy, scattered all too easily, but still I am invited again.
In such a season when flowers and sediments mix,
I will collect seven songs and bind them as a work called "Hanayodo".

Born May 8, 1991 in Hanamaki City, Iwate Prefecture.
Started playing the piano at the age of 9 and writing songs at the age of 12. From the age of 17, she started full-scale music activities based in Morioka as "Nisshoku Natsuko". The meticulously crafted lyric world and composition techniques that sway the heartstrings have attracted attention, and have appeared in many large festivals. Released in 2021, "Anti-Freeze" was selected as a prize-winning work at the 14th CD Shop Awards 2022, and in recent years he has also written many new movie theme songs and commercial music. Nisshoku Natsuko's dense music that she creates one after another knows no bounds in creativity, and her musical ability and performance, including her unique composition style that expresses guitar, bass, and sometimes even percussion parts such as drums with a single piano, are outstanding. It goes beyond the imagination and framework of a piano-playing artist. Strength, weakness, sharpness, ephemeralness, the piano music that runs at full speed pierces the listener's heart and provides a unique musical experience.
