It was worth the three hours I spent last night from 9:00 pm to midnight trying to get access to download the full re-recorded version of the pre-release of Tohoshinki’s “Doushite Kimi Wo Suki Ni Natte Shimattandarou?” (I Wonder Why I Fell in Love with You)! A BigEast friend sent me a link as a gift, and I struggled with the download for hours! But for lucky Japanese fans or residents in Japan, they can easily access the new digital release of this song for all Begin Again Album buyers until 10/24 midnight!
For non-residents of Japan, you must have your App Store configured to the region of Japan in order to install the Mumo Music App. The App is required to playback and access the download! In order to change your region, however, you must also enter a Japanese credit card for the App Store.
All other fans will need to wait until 10/25 to purchase the album on iTunes digitally or purchase the CDs online.
If you’re dying to hear a preview, you can access Mumo using IE browser: here.
Congrats to Tohoshinki for reaching the top real-time ranking on Mumo Music!
A screencap from earlier hours below:
Generally, fans could expect the album to be released digitally on mu-mo (and other Japanese online music websites) as well as iTunes Japan (may not be available in other iTunes stores, though).
