According to the personal FaceBook of Dean Karr, he has recently finished his work on the Jade music video that was shot in the beginning of the year in Los Angeles (click here for the article and pictures on LA Weekly about the Jade PV shoot). He also said that it was his ‘longest job in history’ and thanked X JAPAN and YOSHIKI.
It’s still unknown how and when the video will be released or how far the production of the other four music videos (I.V., Kurenai, Rusty Nail and Endless Rain) is.

With the confirmation of X JAPAN’s appearance at Lollapalooza 2010 in Chicago, we have decided to launch a section on our website dedicated to the event. The Lollapalooza FAQ is aimed at those who will be attending the festival and also for those who are still considering going. Here you will find the answers to questions about Lollapalooza itself, X JAPAN’s appearance there, accomodation, transport, and so on. If you have a question, but couldn’t find the answer, feel free to e-mail it to us and we will try our best to assist you.
We have decided to keep the Lollapalooza FAQ in English and Japanese only (ロラパルーザFAQ日本語版はこちら). However, if you have any problems with the English language, don’t hesitate to contact us and we will help out to the best of our abilities.

Just now some more X JAPAN news reached us thanks to Natalie. According to the news website, X JAPAN are planning to release a new full album this summer. The album will contain both, old and new songs which will be held completely in English.
The recording started in March and is planned to be finished in June*.
Thus, X JAPAN will apparently not only play a show in Chicago in August, as we have reported before, they will also be able to present a new full album that their fans were longing for since a long time.
However, because of a not-yet-existing official confirmation, we still should handle these news with some care.
* The planned date to finish the album was not set end of June, as we announced before, but actually in the beginning. Please pardon our previous mistake on that.
