I just want to note that this is the first time Utada has gotten a banner on iTunes US, so this is such a great honor.

That's awesome. I wish she could somehow become a big pop girl in the US too.

Re: Hikaru Utada's "Face My Fears" EP out now worldwide!

Haven't listened to it yet personally, but I have a question for anyone that's more knowledgeable on the subject? I read a press release today that a vinyl edition is going to be available Spring 2019. I totally plan to get it. I already see preorders on Play Asian and other import sites... but not on English sites. The option is technically available on Amazon, but there's no information about it or anything.

Does anyone know if it's 100% going to be released outside of Japan? Should I preorder it on Play Asia or cdJapan or something just in case?

I love the song, although it feels like there isn't any climax.

Re: Hikaru Utada's "Face My Fears" EP out now worldwide!

After hearing the full version I no longer dislike it. Still not the biggest fan of the obvious Skrillex section, but it's not bad like it was for me in the short opening trailer. It kind of fits, now.

Maybe it's a case of how I felt with "Don't think twice". At first it was boring, but now I like it.

It'd be great to see it available in brick and mortar record shops. (I always scan look to see if she's somehow been imported when I go to mine, but she's never there.) I'm probably just going to order it on an import sites though. I've held out too long on Hatsukoi already, and it has a vinyl release too.

I went ahead and purchased this EP digitally though, because I'm much too impatient, and I have no regrets. These are solid tracks. I'm glad any doubts about the collaboration were hushed.
