Utada: Come Back To Me

Now this is the stuff of birthday celebration! FMQB has officially confirmed that Utada's next American release will be "Come Back To Me," due to impact radios on February 10 on Island Records! Come back to me? We're already here, Hikki...We're already here! That's right ladies and gentlemen, the…


Utada Hikaru: Passion

I'm posting Hikaru Utada's "Passion" today, originally released on December 14th, 2005. In terms of its composition, "Passion" is perhaps Utada's most complex: The lyrics are nothing short of poetry (see the below translation), while the song itself fluctuates between various degrees of intensity…


Stay With Me

I've been neglecting the Eastern world for some time, so in celebration of Utada's release of her next single from HEART STATION, I present the full PV of "Prisoner of Love," directed by Takeishi Wataru. He's responsible for many of Hikki's older videos including "Wait & See" and "Addicted To…


Two European Tours, One Sad American

Two epic concerts officially kicked off this weekend...that of the electro queen Miss Kylie Minogue, and that of the Girls Aloud. Since I didn't go to either one, I'm posting some pictures and footage from either tour to give off the illusion that I did while crying at the keyboard. I've also added…


Happiness and Other False Emotions

Welcome back, Muusers. I've returned with a slew of nothing, wrapped up and presented as something wonderful! + For starters, I present an official remix of Goldfrapp's trip-tastic "Happiness", created by Metronomy and featuring The Teenagers! It's all shades of disjointed, and inspires some…


Hearts On Fire

As Utada Hikaru's new album release date draws closer, the promotion is just beginning to unravel. Click below to watch her performance of "HEART STATION" on Hey!Hey!Hey! last night. For those unfamiliar with the construction of Japanese variety shows...No, those are not cadavers lined up on chairs…


Close Up!!!

The cover has been released for Utada's upcoming album, HEART STATION. Luckily, it looks nothing like her other album covers: 45 seconds of the upcoming PV for the song "HEART STATION" have been released on the song's special website, seen here. She has apparently gotten onto the wrong train.…


Too Much Bear, Not Enough Singer.

This has gone too far. Utada's released a CM (commercial clip) for her upcoming single, HEART STATION, and you'll never guess who makes an appearance. This has got to END, HIKARU. Unless--don't tell me. I'm not ready to hear it, but...well. Hikaru Utada...are you a furry?


Somethin' Kinda WOO!

Perfect. HEART STATION has finally been leaked, and it's shaping up to be an instant classic for me. The introduction starts off almost exactly like "日曜の朝," and breaks away almost as quickly with layered English ad-libs lightly floating above the song's stratosphere. I'm absolutely in love…


Everything I Love

I'm on an Utada kick, so I thought I'd feature Utada's arguably finest work ever, "Kremlin Dusk." The song was constructed with the Mars Volta's drummer, Jon Theodore, who does a superb job. Of course, as with every other song on the album, Utada produced and programmed the entire song. The lyrics…


East Meets West

Slow news day. No new music, either. That's to be expected...it is the weekend after all. I don't have anything of value to say, so I'll refer you to the music I've been listening to today: UTADA. Her english releases, I mean. Utada's English career is a sore subject for most fans; some people love…
