Excite: So, it’s been about half a year since your last single release. The single after your first album “Rainbow,” “Hanabi Sky” (Released in June of 2009) came out while you were on a nation-wide tour which began this interval of releases.
Fukuhara: That’s right.
Excite: So, what did you do during that time? (Laugh)
Fukuhara: Like having a good time? Hahaha! Honestly, I was probably having fun with my music. This time for about a year and a half I got the time to do things I wanted, like carefully crafting music. I kept on trying to make an album as opposed to just a single.
