Utada Hikaru Officially Confirmed for New Drama Theme

It appears as if the rumors that surfaced late last year were in fact partially true. Utada Hikaru is now confirmed to have a new song which will serve as a drama theme in April. The new song will serve as the theme for the new NHK asadora “Toto Nee-chan.” One of the rumors was that she would have a new song with a high profile drama tie-in, and this is it.

“Toto Nee-chan”, which debuts on April 4, stars Takahata Mitsuki. It tells the story of a girl who works to provide for her mother and sisters after her father dies of illness. Pierre Taki also stars in “Too Nee-chan.”

Details on the song and its release have yet to be announced.
