Fukuyama Masaharu to release special single for his 25th Anniversary

Hot on the heels of announcing his new Live DVD, singer Fukuyama Masaharu has revealed that he will be releasing a new physical single, his first in over two years, on August 19th in order to celebrate his 25th anniversary in the industry.  The release will be titled “I am a HERO” and will include five songs, each of which has its own tie-in with another piece of media; the title track is currently being used as the theme song for the NTV drama “Hanasaki Mai ga Damattenai” (the remainder of the tie-ins will be listed below).

“I am a HERO” is currently set to be issued in four different versions:  a Regular CD-Only Edition, a CD+Goods Edition which will include a special muffler towel, a CD+DVD Edition which will include the Music Videos for the first two songs on the single, and for the first time, a Fan Club Edition which will include a special booklet with pictures of Fukuyama from when he was a child and dreamed of becoming a hero, as well as from the year he debuted, and a letter to fans which will explain why he chose to cover Ozaki Yutaka’s “I LOVE YOU” on his first solo album “Dengon”.
