Namie Amuro announces new album "_genic" and album preview



Namie Amuro recently announced that she will be releasing her new album "_genic" on June 10. The album features various international producers such as David Guetta, Joacim Persson (Lady Gaga and Selena Gomez), SeventyEight (Kerli and Loreen), James “Keyz” Foye (Beyonce and Sean Paul), and SOPHIE (Madonna). Zedd also supposedly produced the song "Stranger" on the album, but I haven't found any articles/reports that confirms it. The album is described as an R&B, 80s, and 90s influenced dance pop album. This is a notable difference to Namie's previous releases which primarily featured an EDM sound.

An album preview has been released yesterday to give fans a listen to the new direction in Namie's music. However, the video will be taken down on May 20, so be sure to get a listen before it's too late.
