Ayu paying tribute to Utada Hikaru

Ayumi is one of the artists that are going to be a part of Hikki's tribute album.

「宇多田ヒカルのうた」は全13組のアーティストが宇多田ヒカルのナンバーをカバーする作品。このアルバム には椎名林檎、井上陽水、岡村靖幸、浜崎あゆみ、ハナレグミ、KIRINJI、tofubea ts with BONNIE PINK、吉井和哉、加藤ミリヤ、大橋トリオ、AI、LOVE PSYCHEDELICO、ジミー・ジャム&テリー・ルイス feat. ピーボ・ブライソンが参加する。本作を企画したVirgin Recordsの沖田英宣氏はこの人選について「その人にしか作ることのできない音楽を創造し続けている方 々に参加していただきました」と説明している。各アーティストが歌う楽曲は後日発表される。

なおアルバムの特設サイトにて展開中の、宇多田の楽曲をテーマに多数のクリエイターが作品を手がける企画の 続報もアナウンスされた。この企画には映画「ヱヴァンゲリヲン新劇場版」チーム、「くまモン」のデザイナー ・水野学などさまざまな分野のクリエイターらが参加するほか、作品の一般応募も受け付けられる。我こそはと 思う人はチャレンジしてみよう。

そして今回は宇多田のベストアルバム「Utada Hikaru SINGLE COLLECTION VOL. 1&2」の24bit / 96kHzのハイレゾ音源が12月9日にリリースされることも明らかに。この音源は配信のほか、UNIVE RSAL MUSIC STORE限定でオリジナルデザインを施したUSBメモリ版も販売される。USBメモリ版のデザインは宇多 田本人が考案したキャラクター「くまちゃん」のイラストがモチーフとなっている。

Her music helped change the j-pop scene, though. She's a legend. I think it's a nice tribute

I totally didn't expect that but I'm excited! I wonder which song she'll cover. I've only heard few of Utada's songs but I wonder how Ayu's versio will sound

Yasss Shiina Ringo.

I'm really excited about Ayumi being included. Hikki has for a while been one of my favorites and always was my fav until I discovered ayu to take that place. So it would be dreamy to hear ayu cover a song ♡♡

What a pleasant surprise!!! Maybe now hikki fans will stop hating ayu. =)

I'm excited to see which song she will sing... Passion/hikari please lol.

Passion is my favorite hikki song and I can totally see ayu doing it but it's not one of her greatest hits unfortunately (she has bigger hits).

Wow interesting !!!
In the description of the album If I don't make a mistake it's say that's Utada who chose the different artists and that she only wanted singer songwriters who make very personal musics thanks to their creativity or something like that (?)
And all the artists are fully free to express their creativity through the song they chose to cover =)
To think that Utada decided to choose Ayu is really heartwarming ! I'm really happy ^^

I really can't imagine Ayumi sing an Utada song ... they are so different musically and vocally !! I am really curious to see what song she will cover
