On January 6th, Jolin attended a 王國紀元 LORDS Mobile event in Taipei. She’s the game’s spokesperson.


華西都市報 Huaxi City Daily has released an interview where Jolin talks a bit about the new album and her collaboration with DJ Hardwell on We Are One !

Highlights:

► Jolin: “I am a curious baby, I have been constantly trying new possibilities, I just cannot stop. I like to learn, I learned a lot on the road. People who inspire me, whether they are teachers, fans or passers-by, give me a great feedback, and many of my hobbies, whether they are making cakes or painting, I can put them together and they can play a role in my performance”

We Are One was not particularly a close collaboration, Jolin hopes to have the opportunity to write an EDM song with Hardwell, and to perform live with him.

► She doesn’t know if fans really love EDM so there might not be a lot of EDM songs in the new album, but she doesn’t exclude EDM rearrangements for live performances.

► The new album will have a different style, and its theme is “women” (note: just like she said a few months ago to Billboard “I want to talk more about females. Because I have been exploring some social and mental phenomena related to females in recent years now I have a lot to say to girls. And I also want to say something on behalf of women. Therefore that’s the direction my new album is heading to.”).

► When asked “is it hard to find good songs for the new album ?”: Jolin has received a lot of good demos, but she stops when she feels like she has already done this kind of song several times in the past.

► She’s working on the new album this year, no plan for a tour.

► Jolin likes watching movies, dancing on her favorite tune or cooking when she wants to relax.

PLAY World Tour DVD/BD press conference in Taichung: new teaser featuring performance with Namie Amuro

Today Jolin held a press conference for PLAY World Tour DVD/BD at 麗寶樂園 Lihpao Land (an amusement park) in Taichung.

Full conference
(it starts at 18:30, new teaser at 33:45)

New teaser only

Recap of the 35 minute event:

► Jolin’s performance with Namie Amuro on I’m Not Yours will be included in the release. She praised Namie, saying that she’s a really attractive artist. According to Jolin, in private she’s as cute as a little girl.

► Jolin watched Namie Amuro’s performance at NHK’s Kouhaku on December 31st. Since there were no Chinese subtitles, she could not understand what Namie was saying, but she could feel that she was very emotional (Namie Amuro is retiring in September 2018).

► Every time Jolin sees 美杜莎 Medusa‘s headdress, she remembers the feeling of having her neck very sour (the headdress was very heavy, that’s why Jolin doesn’t dance during the performance).

► When asked about concerts leaving the deepest impression on her, Jolin mentioned the Malaysian date of PLAY World Tour. It was outdoors, she was not used of outdoors concerts. It was raining a lot, she was drenched, slipped with her high heels and fell on stage. She finished her stay in Malaysia resting and aching.
Jolin also mentioned a concert she held for her 3rd album Show Your Love. She had lost a lot of weight, and while performing 你還愛我嗎 Do You Still Love Me, her eyes couldn’t focus, she was seeing double. After this, Jolin realized the importance of health.

► Sam Chen, Warner’s CEO, appeared on stage to offer a “gift” to Jolin: the word “呸 Pei” (Chinese title of PLAY album) written with oiled rice, and pink eggs, a symbol of the concert’s DVD/BD festive birth.
He said Jolin could be considered an “underground producer” since she went several times to the editing room. Jolin answered while laughing that she felt like she had given birth to a child and thanked Sam Chen for helping her “giving birth”.

► Last time Jolin went to an amusement park it was 3 years ago at Universal Studios Japan. She can only remember the Harry Potter games.

► Jolin thinks rollercoasters are more exciting than Ferris wheels, but she has seen too many thrillers, and fears now that the rollercoaster might stop in the air.

► For Jolin, Ferris wheels are not romantic, things from everyday life are, like cooking and eating together.

► Jolin said while laughing that she read posts by fans online saying that PLAY我呸 was already an old song. She’s very happy to finally launch PLAY World Tour DVD/BD.

► Jolin hopes to release the new album this summer to wear less clothes, and relax.

PLAY World Tour DVD/BD will be released on January 30th. You can buy it on 5music DVD|BD (standard shipping or EMS) or books tw DVD|BD (EMS only).
