Did you know that 2009 marks Nobuo Uematsu’s 50th year on the planet? Well, in honor of his 50th birthday, he’s decided to publish a solo album entitled 10 Stories. However, unlike a traditional release, he’ll be releasing songs from the album every two to three months until Spring 2010 arrives. At this time, the full album will be available for purchase, with an English version as well. So what will this album be about? Well, all the music and lyrics are written by Uematsu himself and is performed by NOBIYO and the Dog Ears and it aims to bring happiness to a wide range of ages via experimental ways.

Check out details about the first single after the break!

The first single is entitled “Here Comes Conga Boy.” The inspiration for this song, according to Uematsu, was a small boy who plays Conga every morning at the riverside near Uematsu’s house. It’s quite the playful song, featuring a ton of vocalists and lots of cheery instrumentation. For those on the fence about his newest project, you can always visit the site for a small teaser.

So, you might be asking yourself, “When will the first single be released?” The answer to that question is quite simple really. It’s available now on iTunes in all regions so, if you are interested, you know where to look! I really enjoyed this one myself so I look forward to what else he has in store. I mean, I loved his only other solo album, Phantasmagoria, so I think I’ll enjoy this one too. At least, it’s off to a great start!

Are you a fan of Uematsu’s other solo album? What did you think of the sample on the website? What other kind of styles would you like to hear?
