AKB48 28th Single Announced

Today, at the end of the first day of AKB48 in TOKYO DOME ~1830m of Dreams~, the live that the group has long desired, it was announced that AKB48 will be releasing their next single on October 31st, 2012.


Following [Gingham Check], this will be AKB48's 28th single. The new single, titled [Kakkoii] (meaning "Cool"), will be of the same style and image of past singles like [RIVER], [Beginner], and [Kaze wa Fuiteiru], and at the same time pushing the frontiers of AKB's music.

The single will come in Type A, Type B and Type C, all three sharing the same title track and a common coupling song, and one more song that will be different for each type. Including off-vocal versions, each type will have 6 tracks, and a DVD included that will contain music videos for the 3 songs and a bonus video.

As usual, each copy of the first press limited edition will come with 1 of 2 handshake event tickets, and the regular edition will come with a random photo. In addition, both limited and regular editions will come with a voting ticket for Request Hour Set List Best 100 2013 for a limited time period.

UPDATE: Sorry for the mistranslation on my part. The article meant to say that the song would have a cool image. The title has not been confirmed yet.
