TOKYO GIRLS’ STYLE release new album Nocturnal

TOKYO GIRLS’ STYLE release long-awaited new album ‘Nocturnal’


TOKYO GIRLS’ STYLE has released their sixth album, ‘Nocturnal’ – their first full-length release in seven years. The title refers to creatures that come alive at night and night-blooming flowers, and the album has the theme of “thinking of someone on a sleepless night.”

The group members were still elementary and junior high school students at their debut, so this will be the first album they’ve made while in their twenties – and its nighttime theme indicates that they have grown up.

Also, on August 3, the music video for the new song ‘Corner Cut Memories’ premiered on YouTube. This dance number crossed genres from disco to funk to jazz and was written by Umi Kinami, who also worked on TOKYO GIRLS’ STYLE’s recent single ‘Viva La Koigokoro.’

The video shows the girls dancing in a nightclub, which carries a “save our space” subtext that echoes the many music venue closures during the covid-19 pandemic. As the world continues to change at a dizzying speed, ‘Corner Cut Memories’ is an upbeat song that reminds us of the fun times.

The members of TOKYO GIRLS’ STYLE made the following comments:
