There are a few reports of SAWA's latest one man stating she performed three new songs titled:

ミスターブラウン (Mr. Brown)

Also in attendance were Aya Arvin homa (a frequent lyric collaborator on SAWA's albums), DJ AYUMi (recent producer, for Christmas Eve), Yukihiro Fukutomi (SAWA's Obi-Wan) and Emi Tawada.

There's also a string of new live dates for next month and another big one-man in November.

"Title that doesn't stir up insane excitement but let's everyone know that it seems like there might be some progress"


No big news, sorry.. However SAWA tweeted a pic of some interest today of Hisashi Nawata working on a track at her place.

Haha, notice the SAWA glass.

So... something in the works..

Nawata recently did some production on Shibasaki Kou's CIRCLE CYCLE album with one of hte best tracks on it, パラレルワールド・リーディング (Parallel World Reading) and Sowelu's album last year with the song NEVER feat. VERBAL. Of course he also produced SAWA's last mini-album title track, あいにいくよ, so expecting good things!

Give it a listen

They seem to be pretty good friends and he's joined her for many lives to play keyboard as well.. Wonder if they'll have it finished for the next big one-man-live?


Also.. there's a post of SAWA-fan interest at the wonderful STEREO_NiGHT LJ community.. you might wanna check it out. You have to join, though!

Also2.. SAWA's started her myspace blog back up, check it out for some pics she took of her recent trip to Paris!

That is all for now!
