Andymori is Andymori's self-titled full-length debut album, released on February 4, 2009 (2009-02-04).[1] It was released simultaneously with a vinyl EP with tracks from the album, "Tokai o Sugoi Hayasa de Hashiru Bengal Tora" (都会をすごい速さで走るベンガルトラ?, Bengal Tiger Running Through Town with Great Speed).

Unsigned singer Predawn contributed to chorus vocals in the track "Aoi Sora."[2]

Background[edit]

The album was preceded by four months by the EP "Andy to Rock to Bengal Tora to Whisky" (アンディとロックとベンガルトラとウィスキー?, Andy, Rock, Bengal Tiger and Whisky).[1] Three tracks from the EP, "Bengal Tora to Whisky," "Everything Is My Guitar" and "Follow Me" were later put onto the album.

Promotion[edit]

Four tracks from the album had music videos: "Aoi Sora," "Everything Is My Guitar," "Follow Me," and "Life Is Party."[3] All were directed by Masakazu Fukatsu (except for "Life Is Party," which was directed by Fukatsu and Shōji Shinya, one of the founders of Youth Records). "Follow Me" was later nominated for the Best New Artist video for the 2010 Space Shower Music Video Awards.[4]
