DEAN FUJIOKA Releases Music Video For TV Series Sherlock: Untold Stories’ Main Theme ‘Shelly’

29.October.2019 | MUSIC

DEAN FUJIOKA’s talents span across an arsenal of work, from actor to musician, model, film director, DJ and more. The star is set to release his new EP Shelly on December 11. The record’s title track is being used for the new Japanese drama series Sherlock: Untold Stories. The music video for the track was released yesterday (October 28).

Sherlock: Untold Stories is a thrilling drama show inspired by Arthur Conan Doyle’s character. FUJIOKA plays the part of Shishio Homare, a crime consultant with an outstanding eye for observation and a genius pattern of thinking. Playing the part of Watson, known as Junichi Wakamiya in this series, is Takanori Iwata. Wakamiya is a psychiatrist who gets involved with Homare due to a certain case.

 

The song Shelly is a ballad written by FUJIOKA about a girl who is or was a goddess of fate at some point in Sherlock’s life, whether in the past, present, or future. FUJIOKA plays the part of Shelly in the music video, a mass produced android who is delivered to a girl. The girl enjoys spending time daily with Shelly, but she receives a message that all Shelly androids must be recollected due to a bug that may cause them to malfunction. The video sees the girl grant Shelly’s final wish to dance with her just one more time, and they do so against the beautiful nightscape of Tokyo.

 

 

The girl in the video is played by middle-school dancer TSUKUSHI, a member of the Fukushima all-girls dance crew Fabulous Sisters. She has won successive victories in the international dance contest World of Dance (held in the US). Her choreography in the video was inspired by the music in the song Shelley.

 

The music video’s director Atsunori Toushi commented: “[DEAN FUJIOKA] wrote the song and also played the character. The scope he works at is one of the incredible things about him. He’s able to craft something so pure. In this video, he plays the part of an android whose life his limited to a smartphone from which he can move. He lives out fun days with a young 13-year-old played by TSUKUSHI whose dancing is captivating and who is active around the world. A standout scene from the video is when they dance in the city with the magical city nightscape in the background.”

    The new tour is not only Fujioka’s first live tour since the Born to Make History Tour in 2019, but also his biggest national tour to date, with over 20 shows planned in 18 cities. Fans have been anxiously awaiting the pop artists return to the stage, as last year’s Asia tour never came to fruition.

     

    In this first performance, plenty of popular tracks made appearances, such as Shelly, and Searching for the Ghost. Fujioka’s latest song Runaway was performed to massive fanfare, while four unreleased tracks rounded out the 1 hour and 45 minute performance. These new tracks were Sayonara, Sukima, Missing Piece, and Spin the Planet.

     

    It was clear, however, that Neo Dimension was the song which truly set the theme of the tour. The track is an updated version of My Dimension, originally released as a track Fujioka used to introduce himself and express his intentions. Now, he sees it as more of a compass, and intends to use it as a way to lead him and his audience into the future. Dean Fujioka is an artist who prides himself on his evolution, and his willingness to attempt new things on stage. Neo Dimension is meant to express that side of himself in musical form.

     

    The concert showcased parts of the singer which reminded us of his early career, while other moments made it clear how much he has evolved and changed over time. His time on stage wasn’t random–each moment was a visualization of how his career has changed.

     

    Prior to the start of the tour, Fujioka announced that his third album Transmute will be released in December 2021. This will be his first album in three years, his last being History in the Making. The album will contain the four new tracks played during the show.

     

    The title, Transmute, holds an important message. “It’s important to mutate in order to survive in today’s chaotic world, and to thrive in an unpredictable future,” Fujioka says. This tour will play an important role in helping fans unravel and understand the meaning of those words.
