A clip of their RIJF interview, featuring a part of FAKE IT as well as the first live performance of Spending all my time, can be seen here.

Perfume talked about their impressions of the live, among being big-named artists and performing to a different audience compared to their usual private live. This was the first time the girls performed at a primetime slot compared to previous years, so many more festival-goers were present in their audience. Since there were many fans of rock music, they hoped to bring a performance that matched the other high-energy bands with their own feminine touch.

This led to the discussion of their upcoming Asia tour in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Korea, and Singapore. When asking about any preparations for the performances, A~chan was grateful for the opportunity to perform abroad, as well as recognizing that there may be many people that have yet to hear about Perfume’s music. She hoped that with their tour new fans Asia can realize that Japan has music like Perfume to enjoy. Kashiyuka mentioned that she was very happy to meet their Korean fans at last year’s Asia Song FestivalA~chan reminisced, although they did their greeting in Korean, the audience still greeted them warmly when they reiterated in Japanese.

More images from the event can be viewed on the official Rockin’ On site report.

Perfume LOCKS! airs Spending all my time; Teaser uploaded!

A preview of Spending all my time aired for the first time on today’s episode of Perfume LOCKS! radio. Check out the clip below! The full episode is also uploaded as well.

The song packs a surprising European, trance-pop punch that many Western audiences may be familiar to. Furthermore, the preview only contained a few lines of Japanese lyrics with mostly English filling the track. What might this say about the direction Universial is taking in Perfume’s global expansion? What do you think?

Then, moments after at midnight, the official Perfume YouTube channel uploaded a 10 sec teaser of the PV for Spending all my time, quite litterally teasing all the fans in anticipation of the music video to come.
