歌手の平井堅(36)が、20日に発売する新シングル「キャンバス」のミュージックビデオを母校の横浜市立大学で撮影した。10年ぶりに母校を訪問。実際に授業を受けていた教室で撮影を行った時には、エキストラの学生から拍手で出迎えられ照れた笑顔を浮かべていたという。同曲を収録した約3年半ぶりのニューアルバム「FAKINPOP」は3月12日に発売される

The PV of Hirai Ken"s (36) newest song "Canvas" was shot in his former university at Yokohama City University. He has not visited his old school for 10 years, and current students greeting him with appluases and smiling faces as he was shooting the PV.

The song will be included in his upcoming album to be released in March called "FAKIN' POP"

If the album will include all his singles, than it will be POP STAR, by(e) My Melody, Elegy, Kimi no Suki na Toko, fake star, Canvas & Kimi wa Suteki, then........? Only 7 songs. How bout the remaining 6 songs? Any idea bout the remaining 6?

The cover is kinda unusual and fancy...THe album title too is kinda weird to me. I don't like it much...Sounds corny to me....
I'm more into its content. I'm sure the songs inside will kick some ass... Can't wait the album to become a monster hit selling like hotcakes in its first week of release.
I wonder how can I grab a copy of the album on this part of the planet (Philippines).. LOL!!!. Oh well, if there's a will there's a way as some say...

View user profile http://www.facebook.com/ChangHQ?ref=profile
what about concert? Is there going to be any concert regarding his new album release?

View user profile http://michannosekai.livejournal.com
Thanks for the translation Marcus; i never knew/cared about his past because i love his voice & attitude/passion in his music. Out of curiosity, what did he study?!

Problem with releasing so many singles before the album is that it makes the release of the album less exciting. It's almost a collection of old works compiled. It might be for marketing sake but it's not as anticipated for fans (ie ME)...

Nevertheless, i'll buy the CD/DVD as soon as it is released. He's like a drug to me, sweet poison.
