Utada Hikaru to Release Single Collection Vol. 2August 9, 2010
For the past year, I was wondering when Utada Hikaru would announce her next Japanese single. Hikki is releasing a best album, Utada Hikaru SINGLE COLLECTION VOL. 2 this fall. Her best album will feature her singles from the last six years and 4 -5 new songs will be added as well. Also, she has announced on her blog that she is going on hiatus next year, she wishes to mature more as a person and plans on taking a 2 or 5 year break. On a happier note, she plans on doing music activities full blast until the end of the year. Before I forget, Utada’s official website has been revamped with a new profile picture (seen above), probably taken when she was in Shibuya for that photoshoot this May.
I’m not too fond of the idea of her being on hiatus for 5 years. Hikki has been releasing something every year (even if they are in big gaps) and it’s time for her to take a break, I’m not surprised about her taking a hiatus, I know she had mentioned it before. I support her decision and hope the best for her! Now, I’m just waiting for that album announcement so I can pre-order it!
