The singer’s first album Pamyu Pamyu Revolution and second album Nanda Collection were both made available in 111 countries through paid online music services. The first album topped the iTunes Electronic Charts in the US, Belgium and France, and the second album landed in the No.1 slot on the iTunes Electronic Chart in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Malaysia and Singapore.
KPP’s upcoming third album will be released under Warner Music Group (headquarter office in New York), which is one of the three major record labels in the world. The album will be available in the US on August 12th and in the UK and France on July 21st.
KPP will join a list of artists who Warner Music Group promotes worldwide, including Bruno Mars, LINKIN PARK, RED HOT CHILLI PEPPERS and MUSE.
The lyrics will be translated into English for fans in North and South America, Oceania and Europe, and will be translated into Chinese for fans in Asia. Both versions will also include a 20-page booklet, which comes with many photos of the singer.
Kyary Pamyu Pmyu embarked on her first world tour in February 2013 and is currently on her second world tour.
In the recent years, the 21-year-old singer has received the remarkable amount of global attention that no other Japanese artists have. The singer received wide media coverage every time she landed in a different country, and also appeared on the front page of several newspapers in Asian countries including Taiwan.
After the release of the album, KPP will embark on her Arena tour, which will draw a total of 90,000 fans.
