On March 10th, her 52nd birthday, Seiko's new management office "felicia club" was announced. Seiko, who is in her 35th year in the business, will announce the summer concert tour schedule later this month.

From comedy show "Dorifu no Daibakusho".

Seiko's "mother", played by the legendary comedian Ken Shimura, requested Seiko to sing her new song while he/she makes various attempts to distruct her.

 

Seiko has left her management company in effective of February 28th. Her official website "seikomatsuda.jp" has not been accessible since March 1st.

Her (now former) management company had Seiko herself and her brother and mother listed as board members. 

Other than that, there are only speculations and rumors spreading online.

 

Seiko will release "Yume ga Samete", a duet with Chris Hart, an African-American J-Pop singer, on October 30th. This will be Seiko's first duet with a non-Japanese singer in 17 years since a 1996 single "I'll Be There For You" with Robbie Neville.

The two will perform together at "SIGMA FES. 2013" at Makuhari Messe on September 14th.

 

"Shiroi Tsuki" (White Moon), one of the tracks from new album "A Girl in the Wonder Land", has been released on iTunes.
