Takahiro, 23, and Akira, 27, from popular group Exile opened their Exile Shop in Tokyo Midtown on Tuesday, an event held for their new album “Exile Ballad Best," of which more than a million copies have been shipped to stores. The album went on sale Wednesday.
The Exile Shop at Tsutaya will run until Dec 7, and will be selling limited edition shirts, photos, CDs, handtowels and other goods. Akira said: “I walked into the store, and was just surrounded by photos of us. I’ve never seen so many. I was really happy.”
Of the album, Takahiro said: “There’s a lot of feeling in it. Something you can enjoy seeing and hearing.” Akira added: “There are some emotional songs on there. I hope people can see the world from our point of view. I’ll probably spend Christmas by myself and listen to 'Lovers Again' and fantasize away,” a remark which fired up the onlookers.© Wire reports
