Skrillex & Hikaru Utada Join Forces For Kingdom Hearts 3 Opening Theme Song
Ahead of the release of the highly anticipated KINGDOM HEARTS III on January 29, SQUARE ENIX and Disney today announced that the eight-time Grammy Award winning Skrillex and internationally renowned singer songwriter Hikaru Utada have collaborated for the game’s opening theme song.
Skrillex, a long-time and self-professed fan of the KINGDOM HEARTS series, originally intended to remix the previously revealed Hikaru Utada track, Don’t Think Twice. However, owing to the pair’s friendship, this developed into the new and original collaboration, Face My Fears, to celebrate the game’s release.
Set to be released alongside Don’t Think Twice on January 18, the opening theme song, Face My Fears, has also been produced in collaboration with Poo Bear, the acclaimed record producer who previously produced Justin Bieber’s multi-platinum selling single, What Do You Mean?
KINGDOM HEARTS III will be available for the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4.
