Popstar Utada Hikaru was taking time off. She hadn't put out a new song since 2010. Until now.

Utada is lending her talents to the new Evangelion feature film, Neon Genesis Evangelion: Q 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo. She's such a big fan of the series, that she couldn't turn down the offer to do the film's theme. The name of the tune is "Sakura Nagashi" (桜流し).

Besides releasing hit albums, the songstress previously belted out the theme songs for the Japanese role-playing games Kingdom Hearts and Kingdom Hearts II.
