Cornelius Announces New Album Mellow Waves

Last year, Cornelius’ landmark Shibuya-kei album, Fantasma, was reissued after 19 years, and the Japanese musician has recently announced that he’ll be putting out a new album — his first (aside from soundtrack work) in 11 years since 2006’s Sensuous — later this year. It’s called Mellow Waves and, while it doesn’t have an international release date yet, i’ll be out in Japan on 6/28. The first single, “Anata Ga Irunara,” is also now out in Japan, and he’s announced that a second single, “Itsuka / Dokoka,” will be out on 5/24. Here’s a teaser video that features some new music:
