Singer Hikaru Utada, best known to western audiences for her work on the Kingdom Hearts series, will premiere a music video for digital single “Time” over at YouTube on July 28.
Hikaru Utada will premiere a fresh music video for digital single “Time”, the popular theme song of NTV (Nippon TV) network’s Sunday drama series Bishoku Tantei Akechi Goro (Gourmet Detective Goro Akechi). “Time” will see its world premiere on Hikaru Utada’s official YouTube channel on Tuesday, July 28 at 21:00 JST (8:00 EST / 5:00 PST). The video was shot at Hikaru Utada’s London home, with a minimal crew & maximum attention to safety in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic that has effectively locked down the world.
“Time” was directed by Anthony Gaddis & Eric Tilford, the duo who worked with Mac Miller on songs “Good News” and “Everybody”. The entire process was done remotely in three countries, with the video shot in London, the production done in Los Angeles, and the supervision & release from Japanese label SMEJ (Sony Music Entertainment Japan).
You can watch a teaser trailer above in anticipation of the world premiere of “Time”! In addition, a new Canvas will be released on Spotify, ahead of the video. You can download “Time” now on popular streaming providers Apple Music (+ the iTunes store) and Spotify through this link. Lyrics to the song are also available at this link.
