Milan Records today releases HIKARU UTADA’s new single “PINK BLOOD” and its accompanying music video. Featured as the theme song for the anime television series TO YOUR ETERNITY, “Pink Blood” marks Hikaru Utada’s first time providing the main theme song to an anime television series. The music video for “Pink Blood” was directed by 谷川英司/Eiji Tanigawa of Creative Lab.TOKYO, and features a more imaginative, conceptual look.
“Pink Blood” follows the hugely successful release of “One Last Kiss,” which served as the main theme song to the film Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 THRICE UPON A TIME – listen HERE. Released on March 10, “One Last Kiss” made Hikaru Utada the first-ever solo artist to keep the top spot for three consecutive weeks simultaneously in two of the Oricon chart digital categories. The track also hit the very top in the multi-genre JAPAN HOT 100 chart of Billboard JAPAN, the first time in 10 years for the artist, and it also beat her own record by charting in 33 countries and regions worldwide! The limited edition 12-inch vinyl sold nearly 50,000 units in Japan, making it the top selling vinyl in Japan this year. The vinyl is available for preorder now in the United States via Milan Records.
