More about the Single,“Origami”

The single comprises the following 6 tracks:
M-1: Origami  
M-2: Hato  
M-3: Origami -English Ver.-
M-4: Origami -Chinese Ver.-
M-5: Hato -English Ver.-
M-6: Hato -Chinese Ver.-

Origami - Theme based on the traditional Japanese art of origami paper folding. A bouncy dance music number combining a cute and natural anime-esque voice, Japanese musical instruments and electronic dance music. Within the EDM sound that is already a club standard all over the world, is the insertion of keywords related to traditional Japanese sounds and culture. It is a fitting song for Valerie, who is an avid lover of Japanese culture.

The lyrics will definitely repeat over and over in your head.
Hato - "Po, Po, Po" is a line that is known to every Japanese person. A daring dance music arrangement of the song from the Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science, and Technology. Valerie's sweet, unfaltering magical voice and a vaguely reminiscent track arrangement is wonderfully entwined together to form a pleasant number. Just like "Origami", a magical number that will become a habit once you listen to it.

Valerie's Origami is now on sale at HMV Singapore.
