February 14, 2022 | 2749 Visits


Album BAD MODE debuted at #1 on digital charts in Japan and also significantly ranked in various charts in 21 countries and regions around the globe. The album will soon be available on CD, including the Single-run Limited Edition, on February 23.

While we wait eagerly for the CD release, Hikaru has shared the music video for one of the bonus tracks from the album, “Face My Fears (A. G. Cook Remix),” on February 10!

The music video has been released to celebrate the launch of the KINGDOM HEARTS series cloud versions on Nintendo Switch. Created by the video production team from REAL ROCK DESIGN, it features famous scenes from the series edited anew to sync with the music. A world-wide audience has been sending rave comments since the video release was announced, as proof, once again, of the global popularity of the Kingdom Hearts series and its theme song.



The original “Face My Fears (English Version) / Hikaru Utada & Skrillex “KINGDOM HEARTS III” Opening Theme Song” charted in the US Billboard Hot 100, and the new version was remixed by A. G. CooK, who co-produced “One Last Kiss” and “Kimini Muchuu,” also on the album BAD MODE, turning out the brand-new banger.

The album will include three versions of the song: Japanese and English versions of the original and the A. G. CooK remix. Check out all of them!
