Hikaru Utada Reveals ‘SCIENCE FICTION’ Track List, Including a New Song

“Electricity” is on the way.

It’s time to go traveling back to the future, because SCIENCE FICTION is nearly here.

Hikaru Utada‘s first (?) best-of compilation album is set to drop on April 10, just ahead of the forthcoming HIKARU UTADA SCIENCE FICTION TOUR 2024 throughout Japan, and now also Taipei and Hong Kong. (Have you entered into the lottery for tickets yet? I have, and I’m absolutely terrified.)

The upcoming album chronicles “the artist’s journey through their 25 year musical career,” including 10 songs with 2024 mixes, re-recordings of “Addicted to You,” “Hikari” and “traveling,” a new edit of “Somewhere Near Marseilles,” their gorgeous new single “Naniirodemonai Hana (A Flower of No Color)” – as well as a brand new song, called “Electricity” – said to be releasing “soon,” per the press release. (I’m guessing it’s not a cover of the Dua Lipa and Silk City track, but here’s hoping it’s got the same energy.)

Although there’s no way one double-disc album could appropriately cover the full range of Hikaru’s career – it’s missing several No. 1 hits, like “Be My Last,” “Dareka no Negai ga Kanau Koro,” “Movin’ On Without You” and “Wait & See (Risk),” let alone the deep cuts! – this is still a pretty good overview. Just don’t keep staring at it for long, or you’ll keep noticing songs that are missing. “Heart Station”! “Sakura Nagashi”! “PASSION.”
