The virtual YouTube personality AZKi, who of course is also an active singer, announced two new upcoming songs Fake.Fake.Fake., and Inochi that will be released simultaneously on April 30. These songs will make up AZKi’s seventh and eight original work in her journey to release 12 original songs.
Released under AZKi’s rock alias “AZKi BLaCK”, you can expect Fake.Fake.Fake. to be speedy, emotional, and cool. The song is composed by Keita Tanaka (田仲圭太) from the studio SCRAMBLES, previously worked with idols such as BiSH, BiS, GANG PARADE, and more.
Inochi will be released under the pop alias, “AZKi WHiTE”, and is expected to offer an emotional, and sentimental sound that includes piano and strings instruments, as well as AZKi’s emotional singing. Unlike the previous song mentioned, this song is composed by the Vocaloid producer Wataru Sena (瀬名航) who in the past helped compose AZKi’s song, Melancholy.
Additionally, AZKi will perform her first ever solo and “real” concert in Akihabara Entas on May 19, titled The Shitest Start. Tickets are already up for grabs through the digital ticket service, PassMarket.
The virtual diva AZKi was reincarnated into the virtual world back in November 2018. Her objective is to “communicate with talented people and create a new world through the virtual world”. Due to her now being in the virtual world, her age will forever stay at 18 and never grow old.
AZKi was given life by Cover Corporation, an entertainment content and technology startup company focusing on “live entertainment with characters”, typically within the VR (virtual reality) and AR (augmented reality) space. The company essentially focuses on digital avatars that are controlled by people on the other side of the screen. This allows for almost seamless interaction with the characters, as they are able to respond and act exactly like a person.
