Swinging Popsicle, who made their major debut with “Joy of Living” with Sony Records in 1997, released two full albums, one mini album, and five singles during their partnership with Sony, which are now all out of print. Now expanded to 37 songs, the collection features new cover artwork and will be produced on the high-quality Blu-spec CD format, with remastered songs from Swinging Popsicle, Heaven, Fennec!, as well as the single “Satellite Tower”, the ending theme of the Fuji TV music program “HEY! HEY! HEY! MUSIC CHAMP”. TIME TRAVEL will also include a bonus track “something new (CT version)”, a never-before-released studio recording that was discovered during the band’s remastering of the original tapes.

Veterans of multiple U.S. anime conventions (FanimeCon, New York Anime Festival, Anime Mid-Atlantic), Swinging Popsicle has spent recent years contributing to Japanese game soundtracks (Sumaga – Star Mine Girl, Axanael, Kimi to Kanojo to Kanojo no Koi), and released their latest EP flow in 2015.
