Anyway, Labss Voctro has collaborated with producer house TheFACT ™ in the new Ballantine’s Plan-B (http://elplanb.tv/).

The Plan-B is consists that the group La Oreja de Van Gogh – Official has composed a new song (music and melody) that still has no lyrics, and every fan is invited to participate in the creative process of writing the lyrics for this song. There is a website where you can listen to the song and write the lyrics, once the lyrics are composed, and this is where we take part, you will be able to listen to it in a new voice we have created for Vocaloid! so you can get an idea of how you would the lyrics sound sung by a real singer.

The website is now online (http://elplanb.tv/) and is a total success, we encourage everyone to go in and test the new voice, also, at the end of this year, Oreja de Van Gogh will choose between all lyrics sent by their fans the one they like best and will become the final song.

We believe this will help us to popularize VOCALOID and give the recognition it deserves!
