“Face My Fears” set for release early next year.

Kingdom Hearts singer-songwriter Hikaru Utada has partnered up with DJ-producerĀ Skrillex in co-writing the opening theme song for upcoming action role-playing game Kingdom Hearts III.

Skrillex originally intended to remix a Utada track called “Don’t Think Twice” but as things developed, the pair eventually ended up co-writing an original piece of music for the game’s opening theme, titled “Face My Fears.”
