Director Chou busy with "Rooftop", new album delayed, writes song for friend of 13 years Kang Kangby kelvin@multistars - 8th August 2012
Jay Chou is putting all his energy into "Rooftop", his new album was originally scheduled for release on the 12th of December but it is rumoured it will be delayed! Hong Kong DJ Vani said: "I hear the earliest date will be March next year, then it looks like "J Moment" DVD will be the J fans only choice this year!" He can split himself quite well, when he received a request from Kang Kang to write a song, he immediately wrote the song "She of Hangzhou".
Director Chou always hands in his results card to the fans at the end of the year, and he always registers for the Golden Melody Awards, in 2009 he made an exception and didn't release an album to film "The Green Hornet", this year there's again rumours of an emergency, his company JVR Music yesterday said: "Jay is filming right now, the company and Jay hope to release a new album in December."
He has been all over Taiwan for his directed movie "Rooftop", through nights and days, last week the filming outside got cancelled because of the typhoon, producer Will Liu said: "He saw a piano at the hotel, he looked like he found treasure, he immediately started writing a song, he played and sang with everyone during the typhoon night." His first movie was Andrew Lau's "Initial D", it has influenced him, the rhythm is fast when filming, he has high standards, a few days ago Will Liu went to visit the crew, he was dragged into the shot, he played a passerby.
When he first debuted, he was in the "Jacky Wu Family" with Kang Kang, they have known each other for 13 years. In Kang Kang's first album, he wrote "Light Bulb", when he made his second album "Happy Bird Day", he produced, Kang Kang said: "At that time he hadn't debuted yet, he didn't talk much, once he got into the studio he has lots of ideas, he was the producer for my accompany singing, I lent him my car to drive."
He was a newcomer, "Jacky Go Go Go" hosted by Jacky Wu didn't invite him on, Kang Kang took him onto "Snack Junction" and let him get a bit of exposure. Kang Kang wrote the lyrics, he wrote the melody to "She of Hangzhou", yesterday it has been making the rounds online, Kang Kang can't understand how the new song got leaked, "I'm releasing the album on the 8th, this song is the 4th plugged song!" Kang Kang wrote "Walking in He Fang Street, I see her in her hometown." This is actually the real story of him and his Hangzhou wife, "She took me to He Fang Street, that was the place our love began."
