alan – Michishirube

1. Michishirube

Michishirube is the fourth Japanese digital single by Chinese/Tibetan singer alan, released on March 25, 2015.

Oh how I miss this girl, really. alan’s earlier work still is among my favorite listens ever and now she hasn’t released much mainstream material for a long time. Michishirube might not be at all like her earlier songs when it comes to the style of the music, but it is very pretty and effective. It has an exciting buildup with a little edge to it while the overall ambience of the song remains peaceful and breathtaking. I love how she still does that distant Tibetan wailing in the bridge of the song, she gives me goosebumps every single time she does it. While this song may be quite simple, it’s the secret alan formula she incorporated into this new song that makes it work so well. Very good for ‘just’ a digital release!

  1. Still hoping for a new japanese release, one day it’ll happen.

    • Me too, she really used to be one of my favorite singers so I hope she’ll return to Japan someday! She’s active in China but I like her Japanese stuff so much more.
