ORANGE CARAMEL is getting ready to release their first Japanese album, the self-titled “ORANGE CARAMEL”. The album includes songs from their first two Japanese singles, additional Japanese versions of their Korean songs, new songs, and 2 undecided tracks for a total of 10 planned tracks. ORANGE CARAMEL’s first Japanese album comes on three editions and hits stores March 13th 2013 – read on for full release details and preview videos for new album song “Cookies Cream & Mint”, plus previously released “LIPSTICK”, and more.
ORANGE CARAMEL is a sub-unit of AFTERSCHOOL featuring members Lizzy, Nana, and Reina. They have a more cute, sweet, and light-hearted theme than the sexier AFTERSCHOOL. They debuted in Korean with mini-album “Magical Girl” June 2010 and second mini-album “A~ing ♡” November 2010. Most recently they released their first full length Korean album “LIPSTICK” on September 13th 2012.
In Japan they launched activities with single “Yasashii Akuma” (“My Sweet Devil”) – a cover of 1977 song by Candies. The single released September 5th 2012 and included a Japanese version of their debut Korean song “Mahou Shoujo” (“Magical Girl”). Their second Japanese single “LIPSTICK / Lum no Love Song” released December 12th 2012 and included the Japanese version of their Korean song and cover of first opening theme song for anime Urusei Yatsura (1981, Yuuko Matsutani orig.).
