There's been a whole lot of buzz stirring on the internet lately, and that all stems down to one simple question -- what's going on with m-flo? Among the cryptic tweets from the group promising a surprise announcement at their 'revival' performance at the Universal Studios Japan Countdown New Years Party, as well as their sleek new artist imagery, there's a whole lot to discuss. It may seem like we ourselves would know all the answers to this, after all, we are a publication founded by m-flo's own Taku Takahashi -- though I assure you we don't. There's perhaps nothing Taku is more cryptic about than his work with m-flo.
It all started with a tweet from Taku Takahashi's Twitter account made on November 22. It was straight to the point and didn't quite play around. The caption proclaimed "First day of recording for new #mflo," attached to an image of three pairs of glasses. It'd be fair enough to assume that the front and back pairs belong to both Taku and VERBAL, though who could that middle pair belong to?

Shortly thereafter Taku would again go on to play with the hearts of fans, re-posting the groups latest imagery. This time, however, the image was altered with the words "Coming Soon..." layered over the top, and perhaps most interestingly, acknowledgment of there being a person in the middle. This was delivered through the image's caption "m-flo. Who is it going to be in the middle?"

Staying true to Taku's prior comment, of course, today we saw this tweet go out from the official m-flo Twitter account announcing that we could expect further announcements come December 15 (JST). On top of that, we should all stay wired for what comes next.
With the 20th anniversary of the group just around the corner, our imaginations are running wild with what could come next for the multi-platinum selling duo. In the meantime, however, you can bet we'll be wired to both their Twitter and Facebook accounts waiting to find out more. Now just one question remains, who's going to fill that space in the middle?
