ALI PROJECT vocalist Arika commented, “ALI PROJECT will celebrate its 25th anniversary this year.
In commemoration, we will release a 2-disc best album including tracks from our past releases with 2 themes; “Gothic Lolita” theme with tracks such as “Kinjirareta Asobi” and “Seishojoryoiki” from the anime Rozen Maiden, and “Gothic Horror” theme with tracks such as “Kyoumu Densen” from the anime Another.
“The CD jacket and music videos of the 2 new tracks were shot at the Fontainebleau Palace in France. We chartered the Palace and wore different costumes for Gothic Lolita and Gothic Horror, using the day and night scene at the Palace to draw the world of light and darkness. It is a gorgeous album that brings you fully into our Gothic ALI PROJECT world with sound, images and visuals!”
