LISTEN TO "FACE MY FEARS":
WATCH THE KINGDOM HEARTS III OPENING MOVIE:
Skrillex and Hikaru Utada have teamed up for the opening theme song from the highly-anticipated video game Kingdom Hearts III. The collaborative song "Face My Fears" is available today in both Japanese and English versions on Utada's Face My Fears EP.
Utada wrote the original Kingdom Hearts theme in 2002, a song that has since become iconic in gaming. Skrillex has been a longtime self-professed fan of the Kingdom Hearts series, and was an obvious fit to create the new theme. The song was originally intended to be a remix of Utada's single "Don't Think Twice", but evolved into an entirely new collaboration between Skrillex and Utada. The underlying theme of Kingdom Hearts has always been about the power of friendship, overcoming tremendous challenges and persevering against the darkness, and "Face My Fears" is their tribute to the series.
Kingdom Hearts III is available on January 29, 2019 for Xbox One and the PlayStation 4. For more information, visit kingdomhearts.com.
Skrillex helped propel one of the largest shifts in modern American music in recent memory. At around the one-minute mark of his first Grammy acceptance speech in 2012, iPhone in hand, scrolling interminably down a list, it became clear that Skrillex doesn't feel isolated from his peers. It's always been a defining trait of his character, this aptitude at building things with others. It's since gone on to characterize, color, and define his career, too. From his music to his label, his countless brand collaborations and his work on major Hollywood movies, Skrillex quite simply loves to make things. Despite being one of the biggest names in music, Skrillex hasn't walked away from the "do-it-ourselves" attitude he's had since his start.
