NEWS - Koi no ABO (11th single)

Limited Edition
After a tour that ended at the start of the year 2009 ended up being rather quiet for the group. In fact this single is the only 2009 CD release for NEWS and the only other group release of the year was the concert tour DVD release at the end of the year.

This is also one of the once rare releases that had a DVD to go with the limited edition of the single. But like the previous one, which came with Hoshi o Mezashite, this did not have the music video for the single. Instead it has concert footage from their most recent tour at the time NEWS WINTER PARTY DIAMOND.

The regular edition has a recording of the song Share, which was written by the group together. It was recorded at the NEWS WINTER PARTY DIAMOND at Tokyo Dome concert where they debuted the song. I would eventually get a studio recorded version with the next album released by the group.
