Utada Hikaru comments on the track as below in an interview:

“Since I had known ahead of time that the original story was about how a parallel world filled with monsters was linked within our everyday life, I had inspirations to use Buddhism-related words when I was creating the song. I am looking forward to see how the listeners will take the song.”

 

The world-wide digital release of the new song, “Anata” will be December 8th (Fri), a day before the film release.  Also, Utada Hikaru’s new artist photo and cover photo taken by Polish photographer, Maciej Kucia can now be viewed on Utada Hikaru’s official website.

Please look forward to the film release and the song release in December.
