Utada Hikaru – Sakura Nagashi
1. Sakura Nagashi
2. Sakura Nagashi (Instrumental)
Sakura Nagashi is the ninth digital single released by Japanese singer Utada Hikaru, and her sixth DVD single as well, released on November 17, 2012. The title track was used as the theme song for the animated movie EVANGELION:3.0 YOU CAN (NOT) REDO.
I’ve heard so much about this song, I couldn’t stay behind ofcourse. Sakura Nagashi is indeed a beautiful ballad that grabs you and never lets you go, but completely lets you in, into its lovely sound and breathtaking lyrics. Hikki’s vocal performance is an ultimate highlight in this song, she sings with a deep voice, soft and angelic. I love how the ballad starts pretty small with just a piano and builds into something very strong with an electric guitar, drums and strings near the end. I definitely understand why everybody’s so much in awe, it should be more than just a digital single. It’s the prettiest thing I’ve heard in a long, long time ❤
