Hoshino Gen has unveiled the PV for his new song "Pop Virus."
This song can be found in the singer's new album "POP VIRUS" to drop on December 19. The PV was shot in just one cut at a subway in a foreign country that was built in a recording studio. In it, Hoshino performs the song in a subway train with graphic art that evokes hip-hop culture.
Hoshino Gen will release his new album "POP VIRUS" on December 19. To coincide with this release, he will hold a dome tour from February to March of next year.
The new album will include Hoshino's hit songs, such as "Koi," "Family Song," and "Idea." It will be released in four different versions: Limited Edition A (CD+Blu-ray), Limited Edition B (CD+DVD), Regular Edition First Press, and Regular Edition. The Limited Editions and First Press will come with a special booklet.
Hoshino Gen will digitally release "Idea," which is the theme song for NHK's morning drama 'Hanbun, Aoi,' on August 20.
Designed by Yoshida Yuni, the jacket artwork features a puddle that looks like the side of someone's face. In addition, Hoshino's new artist photo shows him kneeling down on the road underneath the blue sky.
It's been announced that Nogizaka46 member Hoshino Minami will release her first solo photo book (currently untitled) on April 10.
The photo book was shot in Portugal. In a video uploaded onto the photo book's official Twitter account (@373_kawaii), Hoshino promotes the book saying, "In the 20 years of my life, I worked on this the hardest. I want everyone to look at it."
