Japanese pop star Namie Amuro has had an eventful career. As she celebrates 25 years in the business, Amuro is offering fans a look back at all that she’s done. Starting on October 1, streaming service Hulu will offer up a new documentary series offering a look at her two-decades-plus career.
Documentary Of Namie Amuro is a 12-part series that focuses on the long-running career of Amuro, who debuted in 1992 but needed a few years to turn into a nationwide superstar shaping the sound and look of life in Japan over that decade. It promises to offer a look at Amuro from a variety of angles, and also promising to show us the “real” version of the singer. Which, given that she’s clearly involved in this thing’s very existence, actually means you aren’t getting a particularly unfiltered look at her life.
The series will also function as a year-long celebration of Amuro’s career, with a new edition of the show dropping every month over the next 12 months. So carve out a little time at the start of the month, Amuro fans, because you have a lot of content to go through in 2018.
Beyond 25th anniversary ceremonies, Amuro’s also put out a little bit of new music in 2017. Her most recent single was the mid-tempo string sweller “Just You And I,” which actually feels like a little bit of a throwback. Check out a snippet of that one below:
