This time the inverted heart on the cover was changed to the familiar "LOVE & PEACE" heart logo we've seen on the official site and in some of the CMs before.

Otsuka Ai's 15th single is a double A-side!
[PEACH] is a refreshingly upbeat tune for the blue, springtime sky.
In contrast [HEART] is a drifting nostalgic piece with a medium-slow tempo.
Lastly there is a rearranged version of last October's single [Ren'ai Shashin] called [Ren'ai Shashin -spring-].
This single is filled with such splendid variety!

Great news! I like the title "peach". It's so fresh and so summer.

But what about her album? 5 singles and not album? strange....

A 15th? Sweet, another 2 months? Hehe, I can wait, maybe I could. Laughing This sounds like an interesting single. It looks like it's gonna be like SMILY/Biidama I guess. Nod

HEART sounds a little too overused imo... let's see.

This is my attempt at translating the gist of that message with my junior japanese skills.

Otsuka Ai's 15th Single is a "up tune" (up-beat song) that will make one feel the summer!
It will, without a doubt, become this summer's "standard song".
A deluxe double-A side single containing 3 songs!

Very exciting!
Thanks for the news, edwx. Love
Not totally surprising -- most of us guessed it here a while ago... Shifty

4th Album following this?
The Double A-side format allows for an automatic bonus PV... Love

Yes, Rinoa, my thought as well. Blank stare Especially after all the heart business in the LOVE MUSiC PV... (Which was lovely, don't get me wrong, but more...?)

Already available for Pre-Order from CDJapan! Shocked

PEACH/HEART Single:
CD/DVD - Jacket A
CD Only - Jacket B

Appears that the two version will have two different covers... Shifty
Prob. one for PEACH and one for HEART...

Thanks. I'm not sure if the cover will be to represent each side since most double A Side singles don't do that much.
