- A new version of the Japanese artist's double-LP arrives January 24th.
Akiko Yano's 1980 album, Gohan Ga Dekitayo, is getting reissued via Wewantsounds.
Roughly translating to "dinner is ready," the double-LP was recorded with Yellow Magic Orchestra and originally coproduced with Ryuichi Sakamoto across Tokyo and Los Angeles. The 14-track album showcases Yano's move away from her pop and jazz funk origins towards a synth pop sound. The reissue will come out next month, complete with original cover art and a four-page insert.
Akiko Yano is a Japanese pop and jazz musician and a longtime YMO affiliate. This reissue follows two Yano albums rereleased on Wewantsounds this year, Japanese Girl and Iroha Ni Kompeito.
