New Release:   A new compilation has been released titled, "Black Editions Group 2022 Flashback Mixtape". This release is digital only and is apparently not for sale. An email was sent out on December 22, 2022 to folks registered with the Black Editions website. The release includes two tracks with Haino, one from each of the Haino releases that appeared on Black Editions in 2022. More information is posted in the compilations section of the discography.

New Release:   There is a solo Haino release on Sub Pop titled Whenever Wherever, Quietly Plotting, So That It Can Keep On Becoming (Resonating). It can be purchased as a digital file. A seven inch vinyl record can be purchased only through a subscription to the Sub Pop Singles Club. More information is posted in the solo live section of the discography.

Warning: The digital file can be purchased without an account at the Sub Pop online store. However, doing so does not generate a webpage or email with the download link. Apparently, the download link can only be accessed with an account. Our attempts to create an account with the store failed, as the confirmation email generated during the registration process never arrived in our inbox. As such, we have not been able to access our copy of the digital file.
