Perfume LEVEL3 1mm
See the stunning vision above? That’s a new promo photo from Perfume’s upcoming fourth album, LEVEL3. The trio’s also released the album’s covers, tracklist, and a brand new promotional song called “1mm.”

Following the cutesy crap of “Mirai no Museam” and the bright “Magic of Love,” Perfume’s shifted back into more alt-electro territory for “1mm.” Sonically, the song slots somewhere between Daft Punk’s Discover and Human After All, which is funny because After School just channelled “Get Lucky”-era Daft Punk on “Heaven.” You can never have too much Daft Punk or too much J-pop, so this is pretty awesome and hopefully the start of a hot new trend that will last for the rest of the year.

As for the album covers, one of them is the cheapest Windows Paint job I’ve ever seen, and the other is a blessing for the eyes that sees Kween Kashiyuka brush her bangs away to reveal her glorious forehead to the world.

With the exception of “Mirai no Museum,” the tracklisting is really strong: All the great singles and their accompanying b-sides are on there, plus seven brand new songs. Additionally, “Magic of Love,” “Spring of Life,” and “Spending All My Time” have all received the Nakata “album-mix” treatment, and there’s a special DVD containing a music video for “1mm.”

My body is ready to be elevated to LEVEL3 on October 2.

    Here for it. I wonder how much longer they’ll last though. They hinted that they’re trying to get more creative control and are over being Nakata’s puppets. With Kyary on the rise I wonder.

    I was just blinded by the beautiful sight of Kashiyuka’s forehead.

  • Michael Curd

    • Reed Livengood

      That is so unfortunate! I will have to jam it in there on my iTunes.

  • Josh Chinnery

    LET US ALL TAKE A MOMENT TO WEEP FOR THE FLAWLESS HURLY BURLY HAS BEEN LEFT OFF THE TRACKLISTING, WHILE THE CRIME AGAINST PERFUME FANS EVERYWHERE MIRAI NO MUSEUM HAS BEEN INCLUDED IN IT’S ORIGINAL FORM. WRRRRRRRRRRRYYYYYYYYYYYY, NAKATA?!!!?!?!? WRYY?!?!?!?!?!?!

    *ahem* Sorry about that, had to get that out of the way. Anyway, My body is ready for this album. I have been all over Magic of Love and Spending all my Time ever since I allowed Perfume to take over me (out of ignorance, I once rejected the holy trinity of perfection known as Perfume, but I know how my mistake and repent for it daily), so I can’t wait to hear the album versions of everything. 1mm is going to take a little bit to grow on me, but I know I’ll love it in about a week XD It always takes the good stuff time to grow on me :3
