Japanese superstar Hotei has just released the video for his new single ‘Walking Through The Night’, which features the iconic Iggy Pop on vocals. 2016 marks Hotei’s 35th anniversary in music and to celebrate this milestone, Hotei has been touring Japan extensively including over 50 live dates ranging from intimate club shows, to a free open-air concert in his hometown in front of 25,000 fans and will be ending the year with his 31st performance at the Budokan in Tokyo on December 30th, with a very special fan request show.
The “Strangers In The Night” video follows a man’s nocturnal journey through the seedy back streets of Tokyo, lured by the bright lights of temptation. Stunningly filmed and featuring shots of Iggy Pop and footage of Hotei, the video is a gloriously evocative taste of Hotei’s homeland that chimes with the snarling lyrics.
