Justin Bieber Producer, Skrillex, And Utada Hikaru Are Behind The Kingdom Hearts 3 Opening Theme Song

"Face My Fears."


Here's something cool and unexpected: Skrillex is teaming up with singer-songwriter Utada Hikaru to write the opening theme music for Kingdom Hearts III. And the song is produced by the person who helped Justin Bieber write "What Do You Mean."

The song is called "Face My Fears," and it'll be released on January 18, 2019 alongside the previously announced Kingdom Hearts III song "Don't Think Twice."

Publisher Square Enix said in a press release that Skrillex originally planned to simply remix Hikaru's "Don't Think Twice" for the opening theme music. But because Skrillex and Hikaru are friends, they decided to write a completely new song instead.

Unfortunately, we'll have to wait a while longer to hear "Face My Fears," it seems. Some other notes about the song: it was produced by Poo Bear, who also produced Justin Bieber's smash hit "What Do You Mean." Skrillex, meanwhile, has won eight Grammy Awards.

Kingdom Hearts 3 is set to release on January 29, 2019 on Xbox One and PS4. For more, check out all of GameSpot's previous written and video content here.
