R&B singer/songwriter Utada Hikaru
has released the PV for her new song, "Sakura Nagashi" which is to be used as the theme song for the new Evangelion movie "Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo
The song will be released for digital distribution on 11.17 on iTunes Japan and as a DVD-Single on 12.26. ‘Evangelion’ character designer Sadamoto Yoshiyuki
drew the jacket cover.
According to her official YouTube, "The music clip was directed by Cannes International Film Festival Grand Prix winner Naomi Kawase
. The clip expresses the concept of "motherhood" in a universal light, using beautiful sceneries of Japan. Kawase says, 'Because we live in a time such as this, I wanted to incorporate the message of 'the need to value the things that are presently and immediately around us and can be touched.
' This is a collaborative film for which Utada and Kawase met and exchanged ideas many times in the process of creating it."
This is a one-time gesture
that Hikki has made to the requests of the movie staff and to show her respect for the Evangelion franchise, which she has provided with music in the past, and her staff has made it clear she does not have any plans of breaking her hiatus she started in 2011.
Utada's last release was "Goodbye Happiness" in November of 2010.
