Former NMB48 member Sayaka Yamamoto has switched to Universal Music for her solo activities.
The international label is home to artists such as Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift and BTS.
On April 17, Yamamoto will be releasing her first physical single "Ichirinsou". The singer was involved in much of its creation, including writing its lyrics, composing the music, and performing guitar on the track.
Yamamoto was also the lyricist and composer for the 2 B-side tracks that will be on the single.
3 versions of the single will be available upon release: a Regular Edition (CD-Only), a Limited Edition (CD DVD), and Fan Club Edition (CD DVD Photo Book).
Yamamoto was the captain of NMB48 before graduating in November 2018. Although she had released 2 solo albums while with the group, the start of 2019 is considered the start of her solo career.
