MIYAVI, a world-famous guitarist. The long-awaited new album “Imaginary” will be released on September 15th. It will be the 13th original full album released on September 14th, which is her 40th birthday.

With “Imaginary”, MIYAVI will enter a new world. With the power of imagination, it denies the weight and brings the light of hope. MIYAVI’s unrivaled guitar style has brought genre-crossing chemistry throughout his career, and this new album incorporates contemporary pop nuances to further sublimate his style and fans of the past. We will reach new audiences and borderless people widely.

ECC x MIYAVI “Let’s become a world person” project theme song “Are You With Me?” In addition to original songs, there are a wide variety of original and planned full albums that include songs including covers and collaborations. The song will be recorded.


Great! I’ll be waiting for it :slight_smile:
I hope it’s better than the last one

Same. I Hope some day he makes something like old times


Would be nice if he actually tried going in a new direction or doing something similar to his older music (it’s been a while) instead of releasing the same album for the 8th year in a row or whatever it is now.


I guess this might mean we’ll get some sort of teaser/idea on what the album sounds like soon…


I have not really enjoyed anything completely after the 2nd album but the last album was pretty awesome I think.
Def agree he needs to change things up but hes probably really comfortable with his current state. Needs some producer to come in and shake him up😅


MIYAVI × STEVE ALBINI - someone make it happen!

(tho now that I think about it, his WHAT’S MY NAME album is close to how that would sound :')))


Miyavi desperately tries to appeal to the west part 3


Haha yah maybe wouldn’t be so far off.

Someone crazy and raw like Ross Robinson would be awesome for him.

But myv has got an amazingly easy overseas touring setup so more power to him on doing it this EDM mix up way too.


You can check the slick album art and the pre-save links here:

…and a new song also dropped! (I can’t seem to access it yet, region-blocked lol)

Despite my earlier comment ‘Feel the new gravity’ is alright, sounds like standard EDM/Future bass stuff but it’s not bad.
Maybe it’s the skateboard but the artwork reminds me of the birthday cards for 10 year olds that reads something like “Have a radical birthday dude!”.


I hate myself for stanning this monstrosity during his indie peak, and still coming back to his threads, but i really can’t break this habit it seems.

if this track is indication of anything off the coming album, he hasn’t evolved in any capacity over good ten years. his children will graduate school and he’s gonna be recycling same tired-ass beats while screaming barely coherent nonsense over them.

the new covers are heinous.


LMAO, this is also me.

I managed to get a 30-second sneak peek on Amazon Music and it does not bode well…


Not sure if apple music is region blocked but they have previews for all tracks.

Single is ok, but after checking all previews if you told me this was an album of b-sides from the last one Id believe it :sweat_smile::sweat_drops:
Feels like everything good from the last album but robbed of its energy :thinking::sweat_drops:

OH NO. :laughing:

So this is where we’re at now. Movie-trailer-music covers of Nirvana and P.O.D., and a remake of a track that’s more than a decade old to finish it off. I wasn’t expecting anything and I’m still let down.
