This is huge news for both video game and electronic music enthusiasts everywhere. With the third installment to the critically-acclaimed Kingdom Hearts series set for release at the beginning of next year, we’ve just received word that the theme song for the highly-anticipated game will be written by Skrillex, Poo Bear and Hikaru Utada.
Although Kingdom Hearts fans are sure to remember Hikaru Utada’s iconic track “Simple and Clean” from the original game, with both Skrillex & Poo Bear joining the Japanese singer on the title track for the upcoming Kingdom Hearts 3, we can’t wait to see what they come out with. As the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) recently added the song, titled “Face My Fears” to their official song registry, we’re not sure if the track will see a release ahead of the game itself (which is set to release January 25, 2019) but couldn’t be more excited to see these three superstars collaborating together. And as this comes right on the heels of a recent post from Skrillex’s sound engineer Randy Urbanski saying the LA-based producer will be “back changing the game next month” plus a video of Skrillex working on a remix of Travis Scott’s “SICKO MODE”, it seems the heavyweight producer may have more up his sleeve than expected. For now check out the registry entry from the ASCAP below and enjoy!
