As previously reported, singer-songwriter Hikaru Utada will be releasing a new album in early 2022.

Her eighth full-length studio release, BAD MODE will be out digitally on her birthday, January 19th, and on CD on February 23rd.

The album will feature previously-released tie-up tracks such as Kimi ni muchuu, the main theme for TBS Friday night drama "Saiai", as well as One Last Kiss, the theme song for "EVANGELION:3.0+1.0 THRICE UPON A TIME", Find Love, which was featured in SHISEIDO's new global campaign "POWER IS YOU", Face My Fears, the opening theme for action role-playing game "KINGDOM HEARTS Ⅲ", Time, the main theme for NTV Sunday drama "Bishoku Tantei Akechi Goro", PINK BLOOD, the main theme for anime series "To Your Eternity" and Darenimo Iwanai, a SUNTORY Tennensui CM song. It will also contain new songs, and some remixes will be added as bonus tracks.

To commemorate the release of the album, Utada will be streaming a studio concert titled Hikaru Utada Live Sessions from Air Studios online on January 19th.

The concert was recorded at Air Studios in London, and it is said to feature Utada performing the majority of the songs from BAD MODE live for the first time. The show features a line-up of renowned musicians led by bassist Jodi Milliner, the band master for her 2018 tour. The session was recorded and mixed by sound engineer Steve Fitzmaurice, who also worked on the new album, while the video was directed by David Barnard.

The stream will begin at 8pm (JST) on January 19th, and it will end at approximately 9pm (JST). After the broadcast ends, ticket holders will be able to watch an archive on-demand until 11:59pm (JST) on January 23rd.

The performance will be available for streaming overseas via Stagecrowd and bilibili (the latter of which extends availability to fans in Mainland China). Tickets are priced at 2,800 yen, and they are available to purchase for the Stagecrowd broadcast here and for the bilibili broadcast here

Additional details on the concert are available here.

The limited edition of BAD MODE will be bundled with a DVD and a Blu-ray disc that contain footage of the Hikaru Utada Live Sessions from Air Studios concert and a behind-the-scenes documentary covering the show, along with music videos for Time, One Last Kiss, PINK BLOOD, Kimi ni muchuu and BAD MODE.

The music video for Kimi ni muchuu, which was also directed by David Barnard, can be viewed below. It features footage from the Air Studios concert, which makes it double as a teaser for the show.
