The Japanese edition of "In The Now" released on October 12.
Almost a week late from the worldwide release, the Japanese edition of "In The Now" came out on October 12, 2016.
On the very day of the release, "In The Now" suddenly became "out of stock" on Amazon.jp, with a notice that it would "be shipped within a month or two." We had surprised fans inquiring after the situation. Sony Music (Japan) assured us that they had already shipped additional copies at the request from Amazon, and it's now back "In stock." (Note: As I write this, it's back to "out of stock" status again on Amazon.jp.) So far the highest it got on Amazon. jp is #10 in the pop music category. It has also entered the rock category now. It seems the album is selling at a faster rate than expected by someone at Amazon.
