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.
