The J-pop group GENERATIONS from EXILE TRIBE will be kicking off 2018 with a bang by dropping its first greatest hits album on New Year’s Day.
Several different versions of the collection entitled BEST GENERATION will be made available. The regular version will feature all of the seven-member male vocal and dance group’s 15 singles plus a new song on a single CD. The collector’s edition will contain another disc featuring seven covers, including newly recorded versions of EXILE’s hits such as “SUMMER TIME LOVE,” “I Believe,” “Lovers Again” and other songs.
The versions with DVDs/Blu-ray Discs will contain all 26 music videos plus a video of their new song, and the collector’s editions will come with additional discs featuring a live recording of their a-nation 2017 performance and a documentary of the five years since their debut in Nov. 2012. The first editions of the release will also contain a commemorative photo book.
In addition to these various Japanese editions to choose from, the group will also release an international edition featuring English versions of all the songs in the greatest hits album. The visuals for the international release will contain a documentary of their world tour.
And don’t worry if you can’t decide on which version to get, because there will also be a limited box set containing all the Japanese CDs, visual discs, and the international versions, plus a different photo book from the one included in the collector’s edition.
GENERATIONS from EXILE TRIBE is a dance-vocal group featuring five dancers - - Alan, Hayato, Reo, Yuta and Mandy - - and two vocalists, Ryuto and Ryota. The group is currently on tour in Japan until the end of the year.
