Taiwan's pride and joy, superband Mayday are back and ready to release their latest album <Her Story> on the 26th of June. But wait...What's so different about this album? The fact is that NONE of the actual band members will be performing in the album at all! Instead, they will be represented by a slurry of female artists who will weave their stories through Mayday's most classic hits, creating their own renditions of Mayday's songs.
Here's what their little blurb for the album says:
她的故事，我的五月天 Her stories, Our Mayday
Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday,
Yesterday, Today, Mayday...
10個女生10首女聲 10 Girls 10 women's voices
Day by Day, coming soon...
From what I can hear, I know that Lala Hsu, Fish Leong, Jia Jia, Waa Wei and Karen Mok are among those who are involved in this project, but apparently out of everyone who has listened to the audio trailer, no one has been able to correctly identify every single female voice within the album.
Track Listings for the album have already been released:
0:00 生命有一種絕對 Life has a kind of definite
0:14 盛夏光年 Eternal Summer
0:32 離開地球表面 Leaving the edge of the earth
0:46 溫柔 Gentleness
1:09 你不是真正的快樂 You are not really happy
1:26 我不願讓你一個人 I can't bear to leave you by yourself
1:41 如煙 Smoke
1:52 愛情萬歲 Long live Love
2:12 我心中尚未崩壞的地方 A place in my heart that hasn't collapsed
2:32 突然好想你 Suddenly thinking of you
Well, I'm going to take on that challenge and have another crack at it! What are some of your thoughts on the singers of the ten songs? Let us know in the comments below!
For rainie yang's current concert , she is putting together a showcase all about the queens and princess of the chinese music industry. She has released a new single called <Love Voyage> , which is a delightful mashup of all the greatest Love songs of our generation-by female singers of course. They include the hits of jolin Tsai , Karen Mok , Rene Liu , Tanya Chua and Elva Hsiao , Fish Leong , Angela Chang and more. Can you guess which ones are in it?
She has also released a second single , which is her cover of Faye Wong's 1997 hit , <暗湧>.
So many singers that i love are releasing their new albums soon! Sorry if I've repeated some of these updates before - I just want to make sure I've got them up here:)
-more new info on S.H.E's new album! The three sisters will be releasing their first album together in three years on the 16th of November this year. The album is called (花又开好了)(the flowers are open again) I'm really excited to see them together again , and I'm sure so are all you S.H.E fans out there!
-Angela Chang will be releasing her new album on the 21st of October and it is called （有隐的翅膀)（wings that have a shadow) . I'm guessing it may be something to do with her 2006 hit song , <Invisible Wings>.
-Lots of singers are actually planning on releasing greatest hits albums this year , show luo will be releasing his in November this year while elva will be releasing hers in December!

Plus they usually record one or two singles to go with it:)
