Track listing

  1. MY LONELY TOWN
    First unveiled as a surprise song during B'z SHOWCASE 2009 -B'z In Your Town-. Opens with a diluted drum machine over an electric guitar before switching to the usual volume. It was also played during the band's 2011 North American tour B'z LIVE-GYM 2011 -long time no see-.
  2. Kirei na NamidaBeautiful Tears, 綺麗な涙
    As with the title song, this track was recorded in Hawaii. It has not yet been performed live.
  3. Ichibu to Zenbu -Ballad Version-A Part & All, イチブトゼンブ
    New arrangement of first song from the previous single, "Ichibu to Zenbu/DIVE". Primary changes include the drums being eliminated in favor of driving piano and string arrangements. The re-versioned song was first heard in the drama series that the original version was featured in, "Buzzer Beat". This version was requested by the drama staff, but only portions of the new edition were played in the drama itself. This was the first time in eight years that a re-versioned single had been released later as a B-side, since "ultra soul ~Splash Style~" was included on "GOLD".
