UPGRADE 1.0 is a full-length English album from Bentley Jones that was released on the 24th of October, 2012. The album consists of all Bentley original tracks, as well as multiple collaborations featuring May J., Curtis Young, 柴田知美, and SHUN. [2]

A bonus disc was included in the limited edition version of the album, UPGRADE 1.0 〜The Complete UPGRADE Limited Edition〜. The disc, UPGRADE 0.1 〜Non-stop Megamix〜, included remixes by Bentley Jones and VDJ Ta-shi (The Clock Position). Also a part of the limited edition version of the album is the HD MP4 digital release UPGRADE 0.2 〜Videos〜, includes the music videos of "Sexy People" and the UPGRADE Wynter version of "Joyful". While 0.2 was originally a DVD package, the HD MP4 videos were released to the customers who bought the limited edition to compensate for an encoding error found in the DVDs that caused the video footage to warp. Although this problem was spotted very early on in the ordering process, a very small handful of the DVDS were still shipped to a few customers.

In 2013, shortly after terminating his contract with Sound Future, Bentley announced that there was going to be a Re-Release of "Upgrade 1.0" entitled the "International Edition". It will be re-labeled under Remix Factory Music and will essentially replace the "Japan Edition" that was released under SF. The International Edition was released on December 12th, 2014 and contains brand new album art (which was secretly revealed for a split-second in the "What Now...?" music video) as well as a moderately renewed tracklist.
