Back in the studio

Yes, that's right.
According to todays diary entry they were up in a studio in Daikanyama (Tokyo?) somewhere recording a new song. This is great news. Not just because they're back in the studio so soon after Tip Taps Tip, but because they stuck with i-dep's Nakamura Hiroshi to do it. I loved both of his contributions to the Tip Taps Tip single (Pisudori and Halcali 'n' Bass), and back in my review I hoped that he would become a regular part of the new team.
Although they weren't really single material, those b-sides represented a much smoother transistion from old Halcali to new than Tip Taps Tip did. So with any luck this is an indication that Halcali are going to form the kind of small, tight songwriting group that saw them through Bacon so well.
No other details on the song yet of course, except for a "wait 'till next year!" comment from Haruka. This also fits right in with what they said during this interview (Thanks to Sora Kara) about putting out more singles next year. Although this was always a given、it's good to get something concrete on these things.

Update (finally some more news...)
That "new song" they mentioned is going to be a new single, and by the sound of things it should be released early next year. They finished some b-sides for it too.

Update 2
New single next month!

Alright! I really look forward to new singles from them ^_^
And hopefully there will be some more consitency in their music for the next album. :P

*looking back at their sales last week, we can all legitimately say that HALCALI charted higher than Namie Amuro and Ken Hirai. No one who doesn't know needs to know any more details than that*

Nothing specific, sadly. Just

"来月にゎNew Singleも発売されます/The new single will be on sale next month"

Too much to hope it'll be called Twinkle Star...!?

anyway, happy new year!
