Because they pay more money for the album. (Simples).


Yea but they pay more for everything over there. A dozen eggs probably costs twice as much as it does in the UK but that doesn't mean they should get one extra. It's an eggspensive country. Sorry

That's not it, really. In Japan you can buy the European / American releases of albums for prices very similar to what we pay. And those editions are readily available over there. (I know because I've seen it with my own eyes, visiting Japan). So it really is the case of the Japanese actively chosing to pay more money for a release with extras.

Let Love B (With U) and Only Love (from PP) are great lyrics. Make me think of 1 Corinthians 13, which I also like a lot.

I'm relieved to hear that. Glad you enjoy reading it! :)

Yes, here in Japan, both of the EU edition (¥1,975) and the JP edition (¥2,592) are available. The EU edition is the same with which you can buy from the official online shop, and the JP edition has the extra track, and it is out on the Sony Music Labels Inc.

Also sometimes it works both ways, there have been plenty of CDs in the UK that have had bonus tracks not available elsewhere. For a while a few years back it seemed like every other CD I bought seemed to say "UK bonus track" on it, although I don't really buy many CDs these days so I don't know if it happens so much now.

Thanks for the translations m2 :)
