NEWS - LIVE (4th album)

Limited Edition
The most noticeable thing about this album is the lack of single tracks. There were only two single tracks, Koi no ABO and Sakura Girl included, but they were also the only singles the group released before the album. BE FUNKY though had been used as the theme song for a late night drama Kato Shigeaki starred in, Trouble Man, which had fans speculating that it could have been a new single for the group but in the end it ended up just being an album track.

That said there were some other departures from how the group had been releasing their albums since their comeback. Most notably there were no solo or unit songs on the album, only full group songs.

The album's regular edition had the studio version of the song Share, which all the members of the group wrote together. It also had an unplugged version of the song Forever as a bonus track.

The limited edition came with a DVD, which was another thing that broke the mold set by the previous two albums that had only a larger booklet as their LE incentive.

This is the final studio album that features the six member line-up of the group.
