ayumi hamasaki - WORDS
WORDS is a new song by ayumi hamasaki which was released digitally via mu-mo on 6th Sept and it's available for online purchase until 30th Nov .
ayumi performed WORDS for the 1st time during the encore segment of the 1st date of ayumi hamasaki Just the beginning 2nd chapter ~sacrifice~ which took place on 6th Sept at Pacifico Yokohama .
It felt a bit strange that ayumi didn't released any new music for 2017 prior to WORDS so it's better than having no material at all .
That said , I feel that WORDS is a nice heartfelt song . There's a somewhat old school vibe that reminds me of some of ayumi's past mid tempo ballads and lyrically it's touching too .
Seeing that the Just the beginning tour is currently ongoing until Feb 2018 , I frankly didn't expect any new songs coming from ayumi so for her to release WORDS was a bit of a nice surprise .
