Utada Hikaru – New Single Releases

June 29, 2017 by · Leave a Comment 

NEW RELEASES

AVAILABLE FOR DIGITAL DOWNLOAD

MONDAY JULY 10TH 2017

&

FRIDAY JULY 20TH 2017

 

Japanese singer-songwriter, Utada Hikaru will release her first single, “Oozora de Dakishimete” from Epic Records Japan, a division of Sony Music Entertainment Japan, on Monday, July 10th 2017.

Her second single, “forevermore” will follow its release on Friday, july 20th 2017.

Her last record with Universal, Fantome, sold approx. 1.05 million copies worldwide.

(#23 on IFPI’s top selling albums chart from Global Music Report.)

 

Utada Hikaru’s first single at EPIC Records Japan, “Oozora de Dakishimete” aired in Japan in a TV commercial for Suntory’s natural mineral water (Suntory Tennensui).  Since it’s airing, Utada Hikaru has been in such a spotlight that her commercial had over 1 million views on YouTube within 10 days of its release.

 

In a behind the scenes interview, she explains about filming the commercial and the featured track as follows:

“Last time, I was already working on the track [‘michi’] for my album release when I received the offer to feature in a commercial.  But this time, we had gotten an offer before working on the song, so I kept imagining how the commercial might look as I wrote the song.  In “Oozora de Dakishimete”, the lyrics talk about being “reunited by someone you thought you’d never see”, in a “place in the clouds”, “in the big sky”, “in the blue skies”.  When I went to go film the actual commercial, the setting was actually on a mountaintop and was surrounded by fog.  So I felt really immersed in the lyrics.”

 

Utada Hikaru’s first single is still trending, but her second single release has already been announced!  “Forevermore” is going to be used as the theme song for TBS Networks’ Nichijyou Gekijyou (Sunday Theater) drama series, “Gomen, Aishiteru” (I’m sorry, I love you).  Its digital release will be on July 28th.

 

Her song, “Hanataba wo Kimini” was used as the main theme for NHK (Japanese national public broadcasting)’s renzoku TV shosetsu (a morning drama series), “Toto-Neechan” in 2016.  But it has been 9 years since her song was last used in a private broadcasting show.  (Last used was “eternally –drama mix-“in Fuji TV Network’s drama series, “Innocent Love”.)

 

Worldly acclaimed drummer, Chris Dave has worked on both singles, making both songs a must hear!

 

 

 

<CHRIS DAVE PROFILE>

Born in Houston, Texas

Chris Dave started his drumming career when he met Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis in college.  His extraordinary drum techniques has achieved praises from top artists like Robert Glasper, D’Angelo, Adele, Justin Bieber, etc.

In 2016, he was chosen in “100 Greatest Drummers of All Time” in Rolling Stone magazine.

 

 

 

 

 

<Utada Hikaru PROFILE>

Born in New York, NY

Utada Hikaru released her debut single, “Automatic/Time Will Tell” on December 9th, 1998 at the young age of 16.  It sold more than two million copies; instantly making her one of Japan’s top artists.

Just a few months later, she released her first album “First Love”, which made record CD sales in Japan, which still remains unbroken.  Every album she has released since then has topped charts, and in 2007, her single “Flavor of Life” set the world record in its number of downloads.

In 2010, Utada Hikaru decided to take a break from her music career to focus on her personal life.  In April 2016, she restarted her music career by releasing singles “Hanataba wo Kimini” and “Manatsu no Tooriame”.

Her sixth studio album, “Fantome”, released in Sepember 2016.  It achieved critical success worldwide, and her album stayed #1 on Oricon charts for four consecutive weeks; a first for Utada Hikaru.   The album also ranked 3rd on the US iTunes chart.  “Fantome” sold over a million copies, combining CD sales and digital sale.

In March 2017, Utada Hikaru signed with EPIC Records Japan, a Sony Music label.

SYFY ANNOUNCES PICKUP OF PILOT BASED ON GEORGE R.R. MARTIN’S NOVELLA ‘NIGHTFLYERS,’ FROM UNIVERSAL CABLE PRODUCTIONS

June 29, 2017 by · Leave a Comment 

Universal City, CA — June 22, 2017 — SYFY today announced a pilot pick up for NIGHTFLYERS based on author George R.R. Martin’s (“Game of Thrones”) novella and the 1987 film of the same name. Jeff Buhler (“Jacob’s Ladder”) wrote the adaptation for television. In NIGHTFLYERS, in the hope of making contact with alien life, eight maverick scientists and a powerful telepath embark on an expedition to the edge of our solar system aboard The Nightflyer – a ship with a small tightknit crew and a reclusive captain. But when terrifying and violent events begin to take place they start to question each other — and surviving the journey proves harder than anyone thought.

“We are looking forward to diving deeper into George R.R. Martin’s chilling world of NIGHTFLYERS,” said Bill McGoldrick, Executive Vice President Scripted Development for NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment, “The script that Jeff delivered encapsulates this classic sci-fi horror story and adapts it to a platform where we can truly explore the depths of madness.”

From Universal Cable Productions, NIGHTFLYERS will be executive produced by Gene Klein (SUITS), David Bartis (SUITS) and Doug Liman (“Live. Die. Repeat”) of Hypnotic; Buhler; Alison Rosenzweig (“Jacob’s Ladder,” “Windtalkers”) and Michael Gaeta (“Jacob’s Ladder”) of Gaeta Rosenzweig Films; and Lloyd Ivan Miller and Alice P. Neuhauser of Lloyd Ivan Miller Productions. Robert Jaffe (“Nightflyers,” – 1987) will produce.

NIGHTFLYERS was announced in development as part of SYFY’s reboot, which includes previously announced series pick-ups for the highly-anticipated Superman prequel KRYPTON and graphic novel adaptation HAPPY!, starring Christopher Meloni.

SYFY PICKS UP ‘TREMORS’ TO PILOT STARRING KEVIN BACON FROM UNIVERSAL CABLE PRODUCTIONS IN ASSOCIATION WITH BLUMHOUSE TELEVISION

June 29, 2017 by · Leave a Comment 

The Pilot Will Be Executive Produced By Bacon, Andrew Miller And David Schiff

UNIVERSAL CITY, CA — June 26, 2017 — SYFY announced today that TREMORS, starring Kevin Bacon reprising his original role from the 1990 film of the same name, has been ordered to pilot. From Universal Cable Productions, the drama was written by Andrew Miller (“The Secret Circle”), who will also serve as showrunner and executive producer along with Bacon and David Schiff (“Southpaw”) in association with Blumhouse Television.

“This is the only character I’ve played that I’ve ever thought about revisiting. I just got to thinking, where would this guy end up after 25 years?” commented Bacon. “Andrew Miller has a fantastic take on it and we hope to create a show that will be fun and scary for fans of the movie and folks that have yet to discover it. Let’s kick some Graboid ass!”

The killer Graboid worms that nearly destroyed Perfection, Nevada 25 years ago are back, and the town’s only hope for survival is Valentine McKee (Bacon) who beat them once. But to do it again he’ll have to overcome age, alcohol and a delusional hero complex.

“We are so pleased to continue our partnership with SYFY and UCP in reviving this cult classic with none other than Kevin Bacon as Valentine McKee; we look forward to thrilling original fans and new audiences alike,” commented Blumhouse founder, Jason Blum.
