The American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers' song registry website lists a song called "FACE MY FEARS", alternatively known as "OPENING THEME (KINGDOM HEARTS 3)" with writing credits to Utada Hikaru, eight-time Grammy award winning artist Sonny "Skrillex" Moore, and producer Jason "Poo Bear" Boyd. 

 

Skrillex is best known for his contributions to the electronic dance music (EDM) genre with multiple Grammy awards under his belt for his various hit records he's released over the years. Back in 2016, he shared an image of Kingdom Hearts on his Instragram showing his love of the series, and has mentioned Kingdom Hearts and Utada Hikaru a few times in interviews and tweets in the past.

Jason Boyd, better known by his stage name Poo Bear, is a producer, vocal producer, singer and songwriter best known for his producing Justin Bieber's albums and co-writing "Caught Up" from Usher's Diamond-certified album Confessions


"Chikai" and "Don't Think Twice" are listed on the registry as the ending themes to Kingdom Hearts III.

WHOA!

There's that PlanetB-esque opener all the fans that didn't think Don't Think Twice would quite fit as an opener were looking for.

EXCITED TO HEAR THIS!

Re: ASCAP lists additional opening theme for Kingdom Hearts 3 by Skrillex and Utada Hikaru

huh. this is interesting

either this is the opening FMV remix of "don't think twice" or a whole new song - and i'd be p happy with either option.

Haha!

Totally on the same page. Not news I expected to ever find to be true, but so glad that it is! I think I was so mentally set to hear either just straight-up Oath or a remix of it that I hadn't even anticipated an entirely different theme for the opening. I think this will draw some new fans to KHIII too, which I will always be a fan of.

I really don't think you can remix Don't think Twice. It works much better as a ending theme. Hopefully it's an entirely new song :)

I mean as I soon as I heard don’t think twice I knew it would be hard to remix

This is like... wow. I’m so pumped now. I was thinking the opening would be somber with Don’t Think Twice, but it looks like we’re gonna get lit. Lol

Keep the trash that is Dubstep out please. I want the opening to be actual music.
It's like you didn't even listen to the opening remixes of S&C/Hikari. They weren't dubstep since that genre didn't exactly exist yet, but they were pretty heavy EDM music that was still really only floating around the fringes at the time it released.

SO LIT.

watch it hit us on a unexpected day, then what will you do?

but interesting
IT WILL BE TONIGHT I BET LOL

"Face My Fears" is a new song entirely.

His stuff isn't really dubstep, it's closer to what Pumpee did with Ray of Light remix.

Also, DAMN, you gotta just bring down the whole vibe, huh

Is dubstep US genre or mostly JP genre

i mean wasn't dubstep in Tron Legacy?

i mean anything is better than US rap so I like to sample his work since this will be the first collaboration opening for KH
Dubstep is a sub-genere of EDM. Daft Punk makes Electronic/Dance/French house music which has inspired a lot of electro house and EDM music in the the states.

Please do not speak ill of American rap in my house. (I mean feel free to do so but I will fight back)
