That’s right, this is the cover for her new single, “HEART STATION / Stay Gold,” due out February 20, 2008. You should notice firsrt that the cover only has the name of one A-side on it; considering that Utada usually includes both titles (if any at all), she might execute a single design similar to “For You / Time Limit,” where she created two covers, one for each A-side. As for now, this cover is another interesting addition to the mystery behind “HEART STATION.” Sources are scarce, but we do know it’s a pop song made to “wipes away the heart’s tears” (JOSHIN / UBLOG). Considering the thunderbolt on the cover and the over all brightness of the heart among darker blue, “HEART STATION” may be one Hikki’s rarer upbeat songs. Here’s to hoping.
Look out for “Stay Gold” to hit the radio on January 8th – there should be a full, albeit LQ, version available then. And let’s not forget that Hikki has yet to reveal the tie-in for “HEART STATION.”
