Yoshiki (X Japan) Releases New Classical Album, Sells Out GRAMMY Museum Performance.

The anticipated new album from Yoshiki (X Japan) entitled Yoshiki Classical is now available in North America. The album - released digitally today - sees one of Asia's most influential musical artists collaborating with legendary Beatles producer Sir George Martin, the London Philharmonic Orchestra, the Tokyo City Philharmonic Symphony, and the Quartet San Francisco.

Fans can purchase Yoshiki Classical on iTunes, Amazon, and all other major digital retailers.

Due to the controversial nature of its overseas skeleton album art, Yoshiki Classical's worldwide digital release has been delayed to September 24th, the same day as its North American physical release. With the new album, Yoshiki is illuminating the beauty in classical music to rock and pop audiences around the world. With songs like "Miracle" and "The Golden Globes Theme," what Yoshiki has created is a symphonic collection driven by soaring strings, smart piano pieces and the melodic style of his earlier work with bands like X Japan and Violet UK.

Last night, Yoshiki made his debut solo performance in Los Angeles in front of a sold-out crowd at The GRAMMY Museum. "An Evening With Yoshiki" is part of the highly regarded series at the Museum, which has seen performances by Lady Gaga, Brian Wilson, Muse, Ringo Starr with Ben Harper, and Natalie Maines.
