安田寿之7thアルバム(2024年夏頃完成予定)より、先行シングル5曲を2024年3月より順次デジタルリリースして参ります。コンセプチュアルからノンコンセプチュアルに、エレクトロニックからアコースティックに移行してきた安田寿之作品の極みの、非常にシンプルな楽器構成の楽曲集。スタンダードのような美しい作曲を、フェルトピアノ、コントラバス、歌、少しのシンセだけで演奏する、ジャズ的な落ち着いたオーセンティック作品。4人のフィーチャリング歌手は全員日本人の女性アーティストで、説得力のある母国語で作詞、女性の力を感じる作品を目指しています。

リリース1曲目「Lulu」は、Bophanaでも活動してきたLicaを作詞家、歌手として迎えたワルツ。美しく広がるメロディを、芯のある唯一無二の声が奏でます。

5 advance singles from Toshiyuki Yasuda's 7th album will be released in sequence from March 2024. This is an album with a very simple instrumentation, representing the peak of Toshiyuki Yasuda's music, which has transitioned from conceptual to non-conceptual and from electronic to acoustic. The album is jazz-like authenticity, which have beautiful compositions like a standard, performed only with just felt piano, double bass, singing, and slight synths. All 4 featured singers are Japanese female artists, and the lyrics are convincingly written in their native language and aim to convey the power of women.

The 1st release "Lulu" is a waltz featuring Lica as the lyricist and singer, who has been acting in Bophana. A beautiful and expansive melody is sung by a unique voice with a strong core.
