Update: 10/24
Full version of "Pocket" PV is out on jpopsuki tracker.

love_cherry and zyzzyva provided us some insight into the meaning of the PV, especially the background about red threads that can be seen in the PV.

zyzzyva wrote:
The theory is that every person is born with an invisible red thread that connects him/her to every other person he/she will meet in life. The thread may tangle or stretch (meaning the timings of the meetings may change), but it will never break.


The Red Thread is about a strong bond, a kind of life- or blood-line -- connectivity.

Shukumi shared with us a leaked full version of "Pocket": ポケット mp3

Short version of the PV was also uploaded to jpopsuki by doobie.

So it has finally arrive. After one year of waiting, Ai will be releasing 'Pocket' as her next single on November 7, 2007. All we have right now is the release date, and that Pocket will be on it. Even the single title 'Pocket' it's just temporary.

Ai first perform this song at the Love is Born 3rd Anniversary Concert. But most had never heard it because the performance wasn't included on the DVD. Her site state that this is a ballad that will warm everyone's heart this winter.

A rough translation of the official statement:
Ai's official site wrote:
It has been decided that Ai Otsuka, who will be releasing her 4th studio album "LOVE PiECE" on September 26, will release her 16th single "Pocket" (temporary title) on November 7th.

The dreamy ballad first performed during the "[LOVE IS BORN] ~3rd Anniversary 2006~" concert last year has finally been scheduled for release!

For the winter this year, please use this song to warm your heart.

Nod I hope it's better than Peach, which is not one of my favorites. It's not just the PV but the song is...well it's the opening to a TV Drama I'm watching with 堀北真希(Horikita Maki) I guess having to hear it all the time is making it old.
