From what I know it is 9 October.

The new album is named Capricorn. I can see that the new album has the On the Run influence of country style music, based on Dao Xiang.

Quote from jay-chou.net:

Jay Chou’s first single “Paddy Fragrance” from his 9th studio album “Capricorn” was instantaneously well received by the fans upon its release on 22nd September. The lyrics and composition of the song “Paddy Fragrance” was done by Jay. At the same time, he also directed the song’s MV. In order to fully present the ‘Paddy Fragrance’, Director Chou chose a rural village countryside for the location of the shoot. This MV does not have a female lead, instead, Pres Chou got his good friend Yan Rui Dai (Gary) to co-star in the MV. They sang on an ox cart being pulled through a path in the paddy field, and even raced around the paddy field in a carefree manner!

In the costume department, the costume he wore for the MV was actually a souvenir he brought from Thailand. He even used the Cajón – a drum he brought from Japan – in the MV, once again displaying his musical genius! The MV of this heartwarming song premiered across Taiwan’s on 24th September. What is surprising about the premiere is that it was broadcasted across 6 major News Networks - ERA News, CTI TV, NOW News, Set TV, TVBS News, Us TV – simultaneously! This was an unprecedented move by News Stations to broadcast a Music Video of a singer. It is not surprising that Pres Chou was that singer!

“Paddy Fragrance” combined the genres of Western Hip-Hop and Country Folk. Pres Chou wore a simple village costume in the MV, singing and dancing in the countryside, displaying a very carefree spirit, something that was not done before! The MV was shot at a village called Zhongli Xinwu, which has a rich spread of paddy fields along its vast countryside. The paddy fields were an indispensable element in the MV. This was the reason why this rural village was selected as its shooting location. Over 30 villagers, both young and old, were casted in the MV representing 3 generations. Everyone sang along harmoniously – with Jay beating the Cajón drum and his good friend, Gary, strumming the guitar – creating a very heartwarming scene.

As Pres Chou sang in the MV, the storyline in the MV denotes the life of a young man who suffered setbacks in his career (he was fired). He was so frustrated that he even vented his anger at his wife and daughter. He eventually went home to his hometown, and was welcomed warmly by his mother, relatives and friends. Under the support and love given by his family and friends, he found the courage to continue working hard. The storyline was also to reflect the touching and heartwarming lyrics.

Jay said, “Home is like a safe and heartwarming castle. You can go back whatever the circumstances*. This rural and laidback countryside isn’t something that can be found easily in Taiwan nowadays. It also made me feel like getting Gary to star in the MV as well.” Singing and strumming the guitar on the ox cart while basking in the sunset, the pair appeared very carefree. However, the ox cart was not being pulled by an ox, but a staff, Jay explained, “This is because of animal protection, thus we did not use an actual ox.” In order to get the perfect shot, the cart was pulled up and down the path in the paddy field over ten times. In the end, it wasn’t the ox that was tired, but the worker who pulled the ox cart along the path.

There are other interesting ‘country’ elements that can be seen in the MV, such as the costume he wears in the MV. It was brought from Thailand, and it comes complete with a straw hat and a uniquely tailored shirt, adding to the country ‘feel’! As Pres Chou sang while sitting in the village’s assembly area, he appeared to be beating on the wooden crate he is sitting on. Do not mistake it for a wooden crate! He was sitting on a Latin-American drum known as the Cajón, Jay said, “This is no ordinary wooden crate, it is a pretty ‘Diao’ drum. I brought if from Japan because I found the design very special, it can produce the sounds from both a big drum and a small one. I brought it with the intention to put it to use one day.”

The Cajón is a drum that is hardly found in Taiwan. It is a more common sight in Latin-America, America and Japan. Pres Chou once again introduced a new musical element into his music! He first chanced upon this drum when he was in Japan for his World Tour. While shopping after a performance, he saw street performers creating a wide variety of musical sounds with the instrument. Finding it very amusing and refreshing, he immediately brought 2 Cajóns home. Jay was able to play the instrument after a few short practice sessions! This latest instrument that he introduced to the general pop culture comes after he used other instruments like the Chinese flute, Cello, Guitar, Chinese drums, Western drums, Gu Zheng (Chinese Zither) and the pandourion. After excelling in the piano, Jay went on to experiment with other musical instruments to display his talent in music!

Jay’s “Paddy Fragrance” was very well received by fans after it premiered on air, some fans even claimed that they felt like going back to their hometown after listening to it! MSN.com first released short segments of “Paddy Fragrance” at 6pm on 23th September, once news of this release spread, fans started to call up the MSN’s customer service hotline and sent email inquires asking if this MV was legit. Calls reached an unprecedented level so much so that MSN had to take down the MV segments temporary, before putting it back on after the MV premiered on the News Network. It seems only Pres Chou’s fans can create such an uproar whenever he is.
