When one becomes calm and transparent, anyone could reach out the courage that is possessed by all. Hope people get very excited by listening to this song”.
THe new album will be due on March 18th.
Toshi will be releasing his 19th (16th Japanese) original full length new album, “L.O.K” on March 18th from Sony Music Japan.
The pop legend is showing us his seasoned jam, matured energy with loving heart
It is Toshinobu Kubota’s original full length new album, “L.O.K” fully prepared in last three and half years.
A full year of just planning, R&B missionary tosses in today’s music, spells with his signatured approach and convincing vocal skills. Knowing the style and the sweetness, sexism and playfulness, he’s become more colorful than ever with eternal energey.
The album title, “L.O.K” stands for “Lots of Kisses” and it reflects “Thankfulness” and “Appreciations”. The title calls our appreciation for our being: being in love, being broken hearted, striving but not necessary making it, our actual life, and for those who gives us such feelings.
Each song on the album has its own story, but all together, it represents “L.O.K” Instead of saying “Thank you”, Toshi uses the phrase “Lots Of Kisses” in his own way.
The national tour “L.O.K” starts on April 23rd and includes 41 shows.
Kubota's 2015 National Tour has been announced and including the following 41 dates!
