Pretty ridiculous that the whole thing is up on YouTube already.

In a way, but if I had not heard it and have listened to it about five times now I wouldn't have ordered it. I am not a big Sakamoto fan, but hearing this persuaded me to order it.

Of course there are folks going to download it from here and you know. F<K> them.

Thanks for posting this. That track has a wonderful atmosphere. Could easily imagine him singing on that too in a different world.

Milan Records just released "async remodels"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sxZ9AwIPDa4

As one-third of Yellow Magic Orchestra and an Academy Award-winning composer for his work on the soundtrack for The Last Emperor, synth pop innovator Ryuichi Sakamoto is among the most groundbreaking artists to have emerged since the late '70s. A musician's musician, Ryuichi Sakamoto has created intriguing musical unions with artists such as David Sylvian, Iggy Pop, Tony Williams, Bootsy Collins, Jacques Morelenbaum and many others. Following the massively successful release of the electronic masterpiece async in 2017, Ryuichi Sakamoto's first studio album in eight years, Milan is proud to announce the remix compilation 'async remodels.' 'async remodels' features a dozen remixes of async's tracks by a who's who of experimental giants - everyone from Icelandic composer Johann Johannsson (Arrival, Sicario) to Oneohtrix Point Never (composer of Good Times) to Arca (producer of Bjork's numerous releases) have gotten their hands dirty remixing Sakamoto's work. Even reworks by the Canadian synthpop duo Electric Youth and Austin-based synthwave legends S U R V I V E are included. With such a well of talent reinterpreting such a personal album, this is one release Sakamoto fans can't afford to miss.
