X Japan has been teasing the release of a new album for a substantial while now, mentioning here and there that it is in the works.

In the recent article at Digital Journal and subsequent Yoshiki’s Facebook post, Yoshiki had this to reveal:
X Japan’s album is actually completed. It took over 10 years to record, I’m looking for the perfect timing to release it.
Yoshiki also revealed in the interview with JROCK NEWS, which we conducted two years ago, that the upcoming album will be in all English. No further details have been specified, such as the album’s title, tracklist, or artwork, but according to Yoshiki, it appears that the album is ready to go. It simply remains a mystery as he mentioned that he’s “looking for the perfect timing to release it”.
The reactions of X Japan’s fans on Yoshiki’s Facebook post appear to be a little mixed. A lot of fans are very excited for the album. “It will take another ten years”, others write, skeptically.
