The year 2018 has definitely been a rollercoaster for everyone involved, and I’m sure some people are enjoying it a little more than others. With that being said, there’s one person who has definitely worked for and earned their right to be enjoying the year; that person is Sheena Ringo, as she celebrates her 20th anniversary of being a musician. As a musician, Sheena Ringo has grown up alongside some other pretty major artists in the industry, and in recognition of all her hard work, those very musicians are banding together to create the ultimate tribute album.
Set to release in Japan on May 23, the upcoming album “Adam to Eve no Ringo” (Adam and Eve’s Apple) calls on the likes of Utada Hikaru, Kensuke Kita (ASIAN KUNG-FU GENERATION), and a number of other frequent collaborators to build the thirteen song tracklist. It’ll be priced at 3,240 yen, and is currently available for pre-order at all major retailers. Let’s take a look at the tracklist below:

It has most definitely been an incredible 20-year legacy for Sheena Ringo, through the times of Tokyo Jihen all the way until now, she proved herself time and time again to be an absolute powerhouse. It’ll be interesting to see what the future holds for the performer, and we can’t wait to see how she carries herself onwards. Oh, and by the way, you can bet I’ll be jamming out to the Utada Hikaru track on repeat.
