Milan Records announced the release of the digital EP edition of Hikaru Utada’s “One Last Kiss,” the title track of which is the featured theme of the latest film in the series Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 Thrice Upon A Time (Shin Evangelion). In addition to “One Last Kiss,” the EP includes eight tracks from both the Neon Genesis Evangelion TV anime series and Evangelion: New Theatrical Edition film series, newly recorded and performed by Hikaru Utada in celebration of today’s theatrical release of the film.
Also making its debut today is the music video for “One Last Kiss,” directed by Hideaki Anno who is the author, screenwriter, and director of the film. After accepting Hikaru Utada’s offer to make a music video, Mr. Anno proposed that she self-record herself without any on-site direction, which he then cut up and joined together to create the final version. After receiving minimal direction from Mr. Anno via e-mail, Hikaru Utada shot the film in the suburbs of London with only a small crew, taking meticulous measures to prevent COVID-19 infection. The film was edited in Japan by Mr. Anno and his team, who received the video material shot with a variety of equipment, including smart phones. The result is a work that evokes bittersweet emotions, as if tracing an important memory from the private past.
