Amuro Namie to release her 20th anniversary album
Singer Amuro Namie will release a new album(currently untitled) as the first step of her 20th anniversary project.

This new album will include four brand new songs with a total 13 songs.
One of a tracks, "ONLY YOU", is the first all English lyrics song from the singer. The recording took a place in Los Angeles, and is a medium up-tempo number with a catchy melody.
