Namie Amuro Releases Information on Her New Best Album “Finally”

In light of Namie Amuro’s retirement announcement, she has decided to release a career retrospective best album, spanning the years 1992 to 2017. The album is titled “Finally” and is set for release on November 8. The album will come in three editions: 3CD+DVD, 3CD+Blu-ray, and 3CD.

“Finally” will include 52 songs over its three CDs, with the first 39 songs being new recordings.  The album will also include six new songs. Details on two of the new songs, “Showtime” and “Hope”, have already been released. “Showtime” serves as the theme song for the TBS drama “Kangoku no Ohimesama”, while “Hope” serves as the new “One Piece” opening theme song. Another of the new songs, the title track “Finally”, made its debut today as the new “NEWS ZERO” ending theme.

The DVD / Blu-ray that comes with “Finally” will feature 12 music videos, including some for the new songs on the album.

To round out her career, Namie will be doing a five dome tour starting next February, visiting Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya, Fukuoka, and Sapporo. For those who can’t make it to Japan, Namie will be touring Asia as well. The dates for the tour will be released in November.

Namie is asking for her fans’ help in making the setlist for this tour. She’s opened a special site for fans to vote for their favorite songs, in hopes that she’ll perform them on the tour. The site features all of Namie’s releases in chronological order, complete with audio samples. Voting runs from today through December 31.

    • I’m pressed at the omission of:

      and

    • SlyMoonFox

      The thought of not being able to see her live not even once in my poor life just https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/2b41d98621b767466391853716da9710c1b5299765158bf459e833f91e552781.gif

      WHERE IS WILD???

      • yacchaitai

        no naked or go round or yeah-oh either wtf scuffed best album

      • MoMoCHu5360

        Best Fiction V. 2

      • And In The Spotlight, Put ‘Em Up, Stranger, Hands On Me, Love 2000, Alive, Neonlight Lipstick, Do Me More, Fast Car, Make It Happen and… pretty much all my fave Namie songs are missing. At least Want Me, Want Me is there, but other than that it is a kinda disappointing tracklist.

          SAJKCNAKJNCS shit! That’s not the song I meant to put LOL! I meant to put Go Round but I was typing it while reading the tracklist.

      • Amurox

        Hide and Seek and Do Me More weren’t released as singles and i dont think Namie actually likes WILD that much…its only been performed in two tours

    • Guest

      You think they’d make a bit more effort with the album covers…

    • Yes

      She put the Super Monkeys songs on there yasssss

    • Guest

      “with the first 39 songs being new recordings”

      What does this mean? Is it synonymous with ‘remaster’?

      • Azura Of Ylisse

        I imagine she’ll be rerecording her older songs, kinda like how she released a ‘newer’ version of Can You Celebrate? on Ballada? (Which I actually prefer over the original tbh)

    • Guest

      I wouldn’t be surprised if her label pulls a Request Best album next year / after she retires.

      • kazu_no_ko

        I wouldn’t be surprised either… it may actually be a good idea tho.

    • Azura Of Ylisse

      I LOVE the simplicity of these covers!!!
      And it’s so nice of her to release a ‘final’ album with her greatest hits.
      I’m also looking forward to hearing these remasters ^^

      • MoMoCHu5360

        So nice of her to not give Blu-Ray quality of older music videos.

    • Guest

      I’m hurt, I kind of wanted her to include Come…

    • M

      The website says that these covers are just the first press slip covers. She really did re-record tracks 1 – 39 (39 in Japanese is a phonetic pun for thank you) etc.

      • MoMoCHu5360

        THanks for that.

      • Huhh, good, I was just about to comment on how terrible these covers are, especially for such an important album… but well, they are actually OK for slip covers.

    • Nasukwa

      I was trying so hard to stay within my budget, but I couldn’t help it and just pre-ordered the 3CD+DVD version.
      It’s so sad how I won’t be able to ever see her in concert.
      She’s truly a legend in my eyes!!

    • I’m so broke….but I want this….
