D=OUT’s vocalist Kouki has announced to start a solo career as a “kayou” singer! For those that don’t know, kayou is a special type of singing that gives off a 20th century type of feel  (literally “Pop Tune”, also referred to as “Showa-era pop”). Also, Kouki’s new stage name will be Hanamizakura Kouki, and was given to him by none other than his friend from Golden Bomber, Kyruuin Shou.

His first release as a solo artist will be out on February 18. The title of this release has no name yet, but details regarding tracklist and different types have been revealed. Lives and events have also been confirmed, but details on that have not been revealed. Pre-order links have also not been revealed
