Abe Natsumi Returns!

It’s been a while since we’ve seen anything from her, huh?

Natsumi will be releasing her first self-cover album, titled Smile… ♥on the anniversary of her solo debut.

The album will include re-arranged and re-recorded versions of 10 songs that reflect her history.

She will also be kicking off a nationwide tour, titled Abe Natsumi Summer Live 2014 ~Smile…♥~ on July 19 at OTODAMA SEA STUDIO.

Songs for the album, tracklist order has yet to be determined:

・Best Friend
・Iki wo Kasanemashou
・25 ~Vingt-Cinq~
・Itoshiki Hito
・Sweet Holic
・Yuugure Sakusen Kaigi
・Toumorokoshi to Sora to Kaze
・Senkou Hanabi

Abe Natsumi Summer Live 2014 ~Smile…♥~:

Saturday, July 19 – OTODAMA SEA STUDIO (Kanagawa)
Saturday, July 26 – Flamingo the Arusha (Osaka) *Two shows
Sunday, July 27 – Nagoya Blue Note (Aichi) *Two shows
Sunday, August 10 – TSUTAYA O-EAST (Tokyo) *Two shows
Saturday, August 23 – Otaru GOLDSTONE (Hokkaido)

It’s nice to see something from her again! This will mark Abe’s first solo work in about 4 years, as her last was the single Ame Agari no Niji no You ni which was released in September 2010. I’m excited to hear these songs, but I’m surprised the tracklist isn’t a little longer, with a few more songs from her H!P days, which are some of her most popular.

The album releases August 13th.


  1. The most important aspect in a person for me is kindness, and abe seems very kind, I’d love to hang out with her, and of course she’s an awesome artist, that goes without saying.
