Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, the far-out Japanese pop singer I described only barely exaggeratedly in a recent essay as "the most exciting person making music and the new artist I care more than anyone about," released "Furisodation" this morning. Simultaneously celebrating Japan and Kyary's 20th birthday, the video showcases a very red and adorably choreographed drunken Last Supper; its title is a play on the word furisode, a formal kimono for unmarried women. Like all of her songs, "Furisodation" was produced and written by J-pop mastermind Yasutaka Nakata, and it comes out January 30th, along with Kyary's as-yet unheard new theme song to the popular TV show Shin-chan, called "Kimi ni 100%,” and a presumably bizarre photo book about her becoming an "adult."
