Shonen Knife Soon To Release New Album Pop Tune & Promo Video

Release date: 6th June 2012

A new album by all-female super-group, Shonen Knife, entitled Pop Tune will be released on CD and digital download on 6th June. It features ten original songs (see below for listing and to hear samples), including ‘Osaka Rock City’, which has been selected as the theme song for the movie adaptation of Robin Shio’s “Soul Train Flower”, directed by Hiroshi Nishio and to be released later this year!

Bassist, Ritsuko, takes lead vocals on “Sunshine”, and drummer, Emi, takes lead vocals on “Psychedelic Life”. For all other tracks vocals are provided by guitarist, Naoko. This could well be their first full band masterpiece yet!
