CM Yoko 2, the newest album from composer Yoko Kanno, is now available in Apple's iTunes Store not only in Japan, but also in the United States and other countries. The iTunes online digital release arrives on Wednesday — two months before the planned April 22 release on standard CD, Japan's Mora digital music service, and Napster. While Yoko Kanno is best known for her work in anime such as Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, Cowboy Bebop, several Macross projects, and Escaflowne, this new CD contains her commercial themes. The first CM Yoko album ranked as the top album on the soundtrack chart, the iTunes Plus chart (of songs with no digital rights management or restrictions), and the overall chart.
