Taka remarked about the album, originally written in 2003, but not intended for release until now:
“I wasn’t actually thinking about sharing this album with anyone at the time. It didn’t sound like MONO, so I left it as a trail to my envisioned world, as my personal collection.”
Mono is also releasing a limited edition photo-book on April 14th, featuring 100 pages of black and white photos, 2 CD’s of live tracks from their last European Tour. Just 800 hand-numbered copied of the book will be available.
