Jamashinaide Here wo go/ Wakaindashi/ Dokyuu no Go Sign
Announced today, a triple A-side single for Morning Musume, to be released in October. No date's been given yet but there is speculation it will be early October. This will be Duu's last.

So probably one that features Haruka, one that features Chisaki, and then one with the usual people.

I wonder if they'll squeeze the anniversary theme into one of the songs.

Tsunku wrote Jamashinaide and Wakaindashi according to his blog.

Wakai has Haruka's image, but it's a song that they can keep using in the future--good for encores and such.

isn't this one of the few years where they've only got two releases??

That's going to be a nice little concert song.
I find that some songs, especially in Hello!Project, only work in a group/concert setting. They just carry a whole different feel to them. Something about the energy in the group and crowd can just carry a lackluster song and make it into it's own thing. It's something a music video and a basic single just can't really pull off.
This seems like one of those songs. I can already hear the fans doing their DO! call.
Also, I thought this felt really C-ute to me. Morning Musume's signature EDM beeps and then the C-ute song rhythm (I'm not sure how to describe it).

I thought it would have a bit more oomph since he described it as an encore song. I agree with Saya, the high notes will probably be horrible live. Also, I feel like the vocals on this are SUPER LOUD. To the point where they drown out the instrumental.

I started to post my first impressions, then it turned into a blog post. Short version: I'm not a fan of this. The money quote: "This song never really goes anywhere. It's an M.C Escher staircase of motifs built with sounds and techniques they've been rehashing since 2014." Anderei's point about the mix is dead-nuts on, and it makes everything I don't like about the arrangement even worse. I hope the full, non-radio-rip mix is better, and contains some unexpected twist or odd chord, because what we got here is 2:20 of ordinary.

Good points, Anderei and JPope. In fact I do feel that H!P songs have some kind of weird mixing lately. It's very obvious live when they turn up the background vocals, but with this song the instrumental and vocals aren't balanced either. I thought this would be a problem of the somewhat less professional digital songs (like Miss Henkan!! who already was mixed badly) but now it's in an official, physical release as well.
Could still be the rip quality, though.

Ah, I'm more a fan of "clean" vocals. That song is not for me.

You mean the music they play when the house lights come on after the show has ended on so that everyone leaves in a calm and orderly fashion?
described it as an encore song
It would be very nice of Q was right:
... but I'm not holding my hopes up too high. And even if it does work like that, it doesn't help it having very little appeal when listening to it on its own. It sits right next to Seishuun Collection in that regard.

I can definitely feel this as an encore song. Will help bring everyone down after the concert high.

I just imagine this as the last song at Duu's grad, like how Endless Sky and Utakata were for Riho and Kanon and..... lol. I mean, it's a good song to focus on Duu but it's not a very energetic or uplifting one.

Most of the group were in SPA! Magazine. Mizuki said in her blog that the outfits they were in for the shoot were the Jamashinaide ones. They're not quite what I expected:

Well at least it's NOT white. Am I right!? (Yes I'm right.)
