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:
