There is also another thread with the same kind of news, only the rumored album is named Love Story. Also, the tracklist is different from this rumored album "Love Piece".

she is coming out with PEACH / HEART in June, right?
so why is she coming out with a new album BEFORE her new single?
she didn't even post anything on her website about this.
i think its fake. nice try though!

Seems like they're also going to release CD version of Ai am Best on this day. Shocked

Regarding this new album, I'm definitely looking forward to it. I don't know japanese language. CD version has got a 40 page photobook? I think there's gonna be a U-boat PV? And there's gonna be different colour packaging? Ahh. Someone please translate. Crying

YES! at last! this album's sooooo overdue. should've come last year. but yeah, she was busy with tokyo friends. anyway, i'm really excited now. Boogie can't wait for the tracklist. and the previews. and the cover. but 6 songs from singles.... i hope that she'll cram in as many new songs as she uses to anyway. i saw that the HEART PV will be on the DVD too. Smile

and hmm... how does this title connect to food? a piece of a cake or something? Tongue or peas? Laughing
also, the [Rumor] tag should be changed to [Confirmed] or something. and the first post should be updated too.

thanks a lot for the info, pon pon!

Yay!
Thanks for the notice, pon pon! Boogie

Hmm... 11 tracks total--the 6 singles + only 5 new ones. Sneeze

First Press Info:
CD: 40 pg Photobook
CD/DVD: DVD also includes U-Boat PV

Both will have different color cases (randomly selected from blue, green, black, yellow, purple, and pink).
There's also this: 三方背BOX Confused
'3-way/sided Box'...? Not sure what this'll turn out to be. We may have to wait until pics surface of the packaging.... Shifty Sad

Can't wait for this to arrive! I think I'll actually be ordering *both* versions this time...

Now available for Pre-Order @ CD Japan:
CD only
CD/DVD

Also, there's a special for the fan club again. The "LOVE9CUBE" version comes with a 'LOVE PiECE Puzzle'.
^
Perhaps this explains Ai's intention regarding the album title?
'PiECE' references puzzle pieces, the missing piece, fitting/joining together, being part of a whole/larger picture...?
Could be. Tongue Love

yea!!! new album!! would the CD+DVD version have the 40 page booklet as well? or only the CD version has it? I was actually looking forward to having a HEART PV in this album...never thought they would have a PV for u-boat~

New full-length album from Ai Otsuka features six latest hit singles which are not included in "AI am Best." This edition comes with a bonus DVD with the music videos for "Kumuriuta" and "Heart."
Kumuriuta? seems like cdjapan got some more info. the official site says that HEART and a new song will be featured on the DVD, so apparently this could be one of the new songs. but what does 'kumuri' mean? Confused

and that first press color case also sounds interesting.

hurray...! I was surprised to see LOVE piece appear at wiki.theppn, thought it was a fake or something til i verify it over here from u guys. Kinda sad that the new album has less new songs than b4, but it's ok still as long as it's a new album from Ai. Hope that i could get the CD+DVD version...

@ orange_ka:
Embarassed Sorry to worry you.
I meant that the U-Boat PV is a First Press Bonus *in addition to* regular DVD PVs (HEART and another one, presumably Kumuriuta based on CD Japan's info).
This means that after the First Press runs out, you won't be able to get the U-Boat PV anymore (I guess not until the next Best album...).

On the Japanese version of CD Japan, the song is given in katakana as 「クムリウタ」 [as a reminder, while katakana is used for foreign words, it is also commonly used to emphasize native ones].
Kumuri 「曇り, くむり」 means cloudy weather, cloudiness, overcast.
So, 'Cloudy Weather Song.' Smile

This is likely a reference to Komoriuta 「子守歌, こもりうた」-- a lullaby.
The most famous (and most often known as simply 'Komoriuta') is the Edo Komoriuta.
This site has the lyrics (romaji), translation, and a sound clip. Love


ETA:
About the mysterious 「三方背BOX仕様」...
It could mean a CD jewel case that opens 3 ways for the 3 discs (CD, DVD, Bonus-DVD), like a normal double case w/ an extra layer! Shocked

i see the connection between Komoriuta and Kumuriuta. and i thought about 'cloudy weather' but 曇り isn't spelled くむり, it's spelled くもり (kumori). so 'cloudy weather' can't be right. if she's just playing with words, then maybe she's just putting meaning in the くむ part, and the meanings i find of that are (組む) "to put together", (汲む) "to ladle", "to dip", "to have a drink together", "to consider", "to sympathize with" and (酌む) "to serve sake". but since it's in katakana it could be some foreign word (despite what you just said). can't think of anything fitting, though.

and about the cd case that opens three ways... maybe there's like some kind of push out thing in the middle (like a cd tray) and then the two sides. just a thought. Smile
