Columbia Music’s official website has been updated and is now listing the recently announced Dragon Ball Kai CD release, officially titled “Soundtrack 3 & Songs”, which is due out in Japan 22 September 2010 for ¥2,940 (~$35). Early reports indicated that the album would be a continuation of previous Kai albums and would include TV versions of both the opening and ending themes, new background music from the series, and new image songs, which I believe is now solidly confirmed. While Columbia’s listing does not provide the entire track listing for the album yet, it does list three of the image songs that have already been recorded and are set to be included on the release.
- “The Lone Warrior” / Vocals: Takeshi Kusao (Trunks)
- “My 18th Magic” / Vocals: cAnON.
- “News of the Cell Games” / Vocals: Kenji Ootsuki
For all you Trunks fans out there Takeshi Kusao has recorded an image songabout Trunks, which to my knowledge has never been done before! Unfortunately it appears that I and many others have had their dreams crushed, since Norio Wakamoto will not be doing an image song about Cell. Instead, rock singer Kenji Ootsuki will be taking care of that image song.
As of right now, there is no cover art for the release, so we will keep an eye out for that. In the meantime, you can pre-order a copy for yourself at CDJapan or Amazon Japan.
