Tokyo Girls' Style Release Long-awaited New Album 'Nocturnal' – Their First in Seven Years

Four-member girl group TOKYO GIRLS' STYLE have released their sixth album ‘Nocturnal’ – their first full-length release in seven years. The title refers to creatures that come alive at night, as well as night-blooming flowers, and the album has the theme of “thinking of someone on a sleepless night”. The group members were still elementary and junior high school students at the time of their debut, so this will be their first album they've made while in their twenties – and its nighttime theme is an indication that they have grown up.

Also, on August 3, the music video for new song ‘Corner Cut Memories’ premiered on YouTube. This dance number crosses genres from disco to funk to jazz, and was written by Umi Kinami, who also worked on TOKYO GIRLS' STYLE's recent single ‘Viva La Koigokoro’. The video shows the girls dancing in a nightclub, which carries a “save our space” subtext that has echoes the many music venue closures during the covid-19 pandemic. As the world continues to change at dizzying speed, ‘Corner Cut Memories’ is a positive song that reminds us of the fun times.
