宇多田ヒカル、『ヱヴァンゲリヲン新劇場版: Q』テーマソングとなるDVDシングル発売決定! 11月17日その全貌がベールを脱ぎ公開初日を迎えた『ヱヴァンゲリヲン新劇場版: Q』のテーマソングが前作に続き宇多田ヒカルの書き下ろした新曲『桜流し』である。現在「人間活動」中の宇多田ヒカル。しかし、映画制作スタッフからの熱 烈な要望と、前二作の劇場版テーマ・ソングを手がけている宇多田ヒカルの「ヱヴァ」に対する深い思い入れからこの曲が完成した。「序」「破」のテーマソン グとは異なり、せつなく美しく、文学的な気品に満ちた命に対するレクイエムとなっている。

Biography

Utada Hikaru born January 19, 1983, known by her stage name Utada in America and Europe is a Japanese/American singer, song writer, arranger, and producer. Since the release of her debut album First Love, which went on to become the best-selling album in Oricon history, Utada has had three of her Japanese studio albums in the list of Top 10 best-selling albums ever in Japan (number 1, 4, 8) and six of her albums (including one English-language and one compilation) charting within the275 Best-Selling Japanese albums list. Utada has had twelve number-one singles on the Oricon Singles chart, with two notable record achievements for a female solo or group artist: five million-sellers and four in the Top 100 All-Time Best-selling Singles. Utada has an estimated more than 52 million records sold worldwide.

She was described by Time Magazine as a "Diva On Campus," a reference to her having attended Columbia University for a brief, career-break semester in 2000. In 2009, she was considered "the most influential artist of the decade" in the Japanese landscape by The Japan Times. In 2003, Utada was ranked number 24 in the survey of Top 100 Japanese Pop Artists of All Time by HMV, number 10 in HMV's Top 30 Best Japanese Singers of All Time in 2006. 

Additionally, Utada is most well known in the West for making two theme song contributions to Square Enix And Disney's collaborative video game series Kingdom Hearts: "Simple and Clean" (which is the re-written English version of her 10th Japanese single Hikari) for Kingdom Hearts and "Passion" for Kingdom Hearts II (later re-recorded with new English lyrics as "Sanctuary" for the North American and European releases of the game). In 2007, her single "Flavor Of Life" reached number 2 in worldwide digital download yearly single chart with over 7.2 million downloads, and contributes to 12 million digital sales for her over the same year.

I was almost forgetting that WL DVD is coming this week. I wonder if the concert edit will be the same shown on TV or it's different, but I guess it's gonna be the same.

And I'm waiting for some confirmation of ITF tour release after WL Blu-Ray is released.

The live was boring, she was just standing/sitting there singing, occasionally moving on some upbeat songs. Considering that it's the last live before her hiatus, it's all rather underwhelming.

^Yeah, but I think if he already got the rights they'll wait for a while to release it.

It looks that someone already got it in Hong Kong, and the package doesn't look that bad: https://fbcdn-sphotos-a.a...591_6734174_224773_n.jpg

And this is best news, if it means we're getting a new song:

Boring... but it made you appreciate the music more, which is what she's about. I really liked it. 3f1268864eb694bb8b9948c131757f941a97c5a3_r
Also, new song yay!!! At least, I hope so.

if anything, the closest thing to a new song would most probably be a remix of some kind, like the PlanitB Acoustica Mix of Beautiful World, or a rearrangement of some kind. A new song would be nice though haha

If she's ever going to release another song I don't know why, but I get this feeling it might be another ballad.

It'll be "Fight The Blues" ~relief remix~ or some crazy thing. I'd love it to be a new song as that would raise the most money, but it is Utada.
