    The long-awaited new album will not be released. As the band is very successful, the Johnny's Jimusho has decided to go further and has announced the release of a new maxi best album....

    After 5 singles (soon 6, for Everything will be out next week) and around 3 millions CDs sold since the release of their latest album, Arashi have established themselves as the most trendy group in Japan. To put icing on the cake, they could have released an album, but they will actually release a best album, entitled All the BEST! 1999-2009, which will be out on August 19.

    There will be two CDs crammed with songs, most of them being Arashi's biggest hits since they were formed at the end of the century... Thus the second half of the second CD contains their latest A-sides. And there will be a previously unreleased song which has no title yet. Overall, there will be 32 songs that people will be able to (re)discover.

    A limited edition will also be available. A third CD, titled “ARASHI’S Selection”, will be included in it, and contain 10 other songs, most of them being unreleased songs from the group's previous albums.

    Pre-orders are available on CDJapan
