X-Japan, one of Japan’s biggest rock artists, is releasing Jade tomorrow, a digital single from the bands upcoming English debut album. Described as a mix between Queen and Muse, the song has mostly English lyrics and is actually pretty awesome! I’m fast becoming a big fan of X-Japan and I’m really excited to hear the new album.

“This is a years-long dream of X Japan’s, to release a record in the Americas and in Europe,” said Yoshiki, X Japan’s leader/producer/songwriter/drummer/pianist. “Music is very powerful, and we believe it can help us bridge the gap between east and west. We hope that ‘Jade’ will be the first step.”
