When I first thought 'I want to make an album called "blue" and make the image of the colour into sound', the second thing I thought was 'am I going to make only this one colour?'. Soon I decided that it should be "yellow" after "blue". But why "yellow"? There are various reasons, but what I first thought at that moment was that I am a kind of yellow (Asians), and that if you place the second album next to "blue", it would be yellow that complements blue most beautifully. It has given me great pleasure to make a wish come true to include music from our neighboring Asian countries like Hong Kong, Korea and Okinawa on the album. No showy and bright yellow to the core came out. There are more songs with stronger rhythm than on "blue". I hope you enjoy the tone of "yellow" which is a result of collaboration between HaLo and many other artists.
