After her explosive performance at the Coachella Valley Music Festival in California on April 16, Japanese music icon Hikaru Utada unveiled big plans for her music, including the release of vinyl editions of ther songs and a Tokyo pop-up store.
The Hikaru Utada Pop-Up Shop will open its doors to the public on Tuesday, April 26. It will remain open until May 2.
As the name suggests, the shop will sell the vinyl record edition of all her previous albums. The vinyl versions of her first three records, “First Love,” “Distance,” and “Deep River,” were released in March. But the release of the vinyl versions of her other albums like “Ultra Blue,” “Heart Station,” “Fantome,” “Hatsukoi,” and her latest one “Bad Mode” that came out in January will coincide with the pop-up shop’s launch.
The location of the pop-up store will be at the sixth floor of the Shibuya district branch of Tower Records in Tokyo. Each vinyl album will sell at ¥5,093 each.
Aside from the vinyl albums, the shop will also feature Utada’s outfit worn at the “Bad Mode” music video on display.
Also, the Utada Hikaru Mix streaming DJ event will go live every night from April 27 to May 1. It will feature a different album and DJ every night.
DJ Taku Takahashi will play on April 27, followed by TJO on April 28. Yukibeb will take over the DJ’s booth on April 29, while DJ Yanatake will play on April 30. The final event will be graced by YonYon on May 1.
All sessions are viewable at the official Hikaru Utada staff Instagram account at exactly 11 p.m.
