Utada returns with new single “Come Back to Me.”
Island Def Jam artist Utada is ready to let the world in on her new single “Come Back to Me” with a new studio album set to hit store shelves on March 24th.
“Come Back to Me” is described as an energetic ballad and was produced by the hitmakers Stargate (Ne-Yo, Rihanna, Beyonce). The single will officially have its debut on pop radio on February 9th and will then be available via iTunes.
The song is a showcase for the 26-year-old singer’s vocal talents – which have been compared to Madonna, Beyonce, Rihanna and Mariah Carey.
The new studio album features 10 tracks written by Utada and was recorded in New York, Atlanta and Tokyo.
In a release, Utada stated: “I like to make music that’s mutli-layered. You might just want to dance, without really diving into the lyrics. And then if you like words, you might notice the references I make to Captain Picard or Winona Ryder. Both things are equally important to me—to be catchy, so when you hear it on the radio it sticks out, and to have that depth. "
Thanks to a number of album and single releases over the last ten years in Japan, Utada has become one of the most successful and acclaimed pop singers in Japanese music history with record sales of over 52 million.
