Thanks for your hard work.
Sayubee aka Takagi Sayuki here.
Today I did recorded album songs.
Today I think
I’m going to talk about that album,『First Squeeze！』. ♪
Speaking of albums,
I think as one work they are very interesting.
Don’t you listen to the albums of your favorite artists and stuff a lot?
I always have.
（I do now too.）
Whenever I had a new album at hand,
no matter what time I constantly listened to it.
So, the scenery and atmosphere, smell, and temperature that went with the music, the moment the intro to that album plays I am revived as if in a time slip.
I think it’s wonderful.
When there was a new album with new songs, with great happiness I’d memorize that song, and practice the harmony,
I’d mimic down to the clothing,
and then in the living room, in front of my mother, I’d do an impersonation of a LIVE. *laughs*
I really heard the songs countless, countless times, and studied them.
Also the song order on the album
has all kinds of thoughts wrapped up in it.
「I wonder why this song was put here？With this song order, with this song here it feels like it’s floating」I thought.
was a song that the artist-san wanted to put on the album no matter what.
From the moment I understood that, it was floating.
When that song comes up in the song order, I have come to start crying as soon as the song starts。。
Since it is full of all those kinds of feelings, I think those listening it can also enjoying finding more and more various things.
We’re in the middle of recording for this album,「First Squeeze！」,
And the way I have been thinking about my singing, it really feels like it’s grown.
Since it is music that you can cuddle up with daily, I’ve been obsessing and obsessing until now, it’s only the fine details until it is made, it is because our senpai were there to influence our music.
Also when recording,
I look at the lyric cards I was given, and listening to the CD simply sing.
Ir isn’t good enought to get an OK from the director-san,
If I think to myself「I am able to sing more！, I’ll ask「Please let me sing one more time」, then I am able to sing 1 more take, so I’ve come to be able to do those kinds of things, not just what I am told.
And I have also come to understand why you don’t sing directly into the mic.
「So you don’t fail」
「So you don’t make a mistake in pitch」
「So you don’t rush the rhythm」
those things are also important, but,
But I have come to be able to see what is more important than that, and that is to be able to sing from the heart and enjoy it.
Like that, I got really fired up, and I am also looking forward to listening to the finished album.
Since I think it’ll definitely be a wonderful album, I want everyone to also look forward to it！
And, it would be great if it became an album that would blend in with everyone’s daily lives. ♫
I really talked a lot. *laughs*
About that much makes me really fired up！*laughs*
Everyone look forward to it。。♪
Everyone, what feeling do you have
while you wait for the release day of First Squeeze！？？
I will have a lot of opportunities to hear your impressions of listening to the CD,
But since I can’t heard your feelings since it hasn’t arrived yet,
Please tell me how you are waiting！
I should consult you！
