Japan’s very own guitar samurai MIYAVI is back with force, showcasing the release of his new song “Afraid To Be Cool” and the announcement that his new album for 2016 will be out on August 31st.

Although we only have the short version of the music video and song available at the moment, just within the 1 minute and 57 seconds preview we get, you can already tell this is gonna be another chart topping song for Miyavi and his endless amounts of talent. For his new release he joined together with the amazing Japanese artist Fantasista Utamaro – of whom has a very extensive list of people he has worked with such as LM.C, YUZU, Aya Hirano, Ko Shibasaki, Shina Pikarin, Amiaya, Pharrell Williams, and Ai Shinozaki to name a few.


On april 12th MIYAVI’s youtube channel teased fans with a trailer for his “Afraid To be Cool” release, but was also giving a glimpse into his B-side of the track “Raise Me up” – an added bonus to the video was the announcement of his new Japanese tour “New Beat, New Future” which starts in Sapporo on the 19th September, and finishes in Nagoya on the October 2nd. Good news is that “Afraid To be Cool/Raise Me up” are both available for purchase on the itunes Store which has already hit the #1 itunes top album charts in Japan and entering the top 10 itunes charts in Hong Kong and Finland.
