Junnosuke Taguchi has signed an exclusive contract with Universal Music Japan, marking the singer's first time with a major label since leaving KAT-TUN last year.
Taguchi made his solo debut with the release of "Hero" on November 2, 2016. The single was released under the label Immortal. The singer is now looking to expand his solo activities by switching to a major label.
"I would like broaden my range of expressing myself as an entertainer such as through acting and modeling, but with a focus on new music activities. I will continue working hard and with my heart in everything I do. I sincerely hope for your warmth and support from this point on," Taguchi said.
Taguchi's first major-label single is titled "Connect". It will be available in a CD-Only and a CD DVD format when it is released on April 5. The singer said he hopes to connect people through his music.
