Japanese queen of pop Namie Amuro, 37, is back with a new studio album out June 10, and a clever music video released last week. The video for single ‘Golden Touch’ is a “simulated interactive” experience which asks you to become part of the scenes being depicted – simply by placing your fingertip in the center of the screen throughout the track.
We’re not going to ruin the fun for you by telling you what happens, so go ahead and enjoy the video below.
Generally speaking, the “golden touch” gimmick works pretty well, and the song’s not bad either. There are also plans to release an app for ‘Golden Touch’, which would presumably bring true interactivity, not just the simulated kind.
The album "_genic" will be Amuro’s first studio album in two years, and her 11th solo album overall. Since releasing her first solo single in the early 1990s, she has become one of Japan’s longest-standing pop successes.
