DEAN FUJIOKA recently announced a 3-month consecutive release cycle, with three singles to roll out over three months respectively. The first song is entitled Shellyーfor which the music video was released on Mondayーwhich features as the main theme for the Fuji TV drama series Sherlock: Untold Stories. The second track is entitled Searching For The Ghost and will be released digitally on November 4.
Searching For The Ghost will be used as the opening theme for Sherlock: Untold Stories in which DEAN FUJIOKA stars as the titular character, known as Shishio Homare in this adaptation, a crime consultant with an outstanding eye for observation and a genius pattern of thinking.
The opening theme enjoyed rave reviews from viewers when it first aired. The song pulls you into its world from the first note, with a distorted bass and hand clapping that you just have to join in with. The song’s bass-y sound is dark like that of FUJIOKA’s song Echo which was released last year and was used as the main theme for the Fuji TV drama Monte Kurisuto Haku: Karei Naru Fukushu. It also has rock elements woven into it which, together with the artist’s latest album History In The Making and the announcement of his first Asia tour is proof enough that FUJIOKA is going all out with his music career right now. And seeing as he himself is a part of the Sherlock series, his understanding of it means the music further synchronises with its world.
