Kingdom Hearts III released the trailer to the highly-anticipated role-playing video game last month which featured a sneak peek at the theme song made by Skrillex and Hikaru Utada. Now, the Japanese-American singer-songwriter has released her Face My Fears EP, which includes the full debut of the Skrillex-produced track in both English and Japanese versions. Superstar gamer Ninja, who took a dip into the EDM-isphere with his Ninjawerks Volume 1 compilation project late last year, took to Twitter to praise the song, equating it to the reason EDM belongs with gaming.

Through it’s dynamic and forward-moving hook, the track combines Utada’s serene versework with Skrillex’s signature melodic vocal chops thrown towards a stuttering groove and clicking dance-pop rhythm. Utada also released two additional singles from the EP, “Don’t Think Twice” and “Chikai,” which also feature her stunning bi-lingual vocals.
