These works will be released to commemorate the distribution of the Netflix series “First Love” (starring: Hikari Mitsushima, Takeru Sato), which will be released worldwide from Thursday, November 24th. It is the first time for Hikaru Utada to release a Dolby Atmos distribution and a 7-inch analog board.

The Dolby Atmos version was mixed by Grammy-winning engineer Steve Fitzmaurice, who has worked on all of Hikaru Utada’s recent work. The meticulously designed three-dimensional acoustic space is said to be full of charm that is different from stereo mixes.

“First Love (2022 Mix)” recorded on the analog board is a stereo mix newly produced by Steve, similar to the Dolby Atmos mix. “Hatsukoi (2022 Remastering)” also includes newly mastered sound sources for this release. The analog board is a limited edition, and reservations will be accepted at CD shops and online shops from today. Since it also includes an a cappella sound source with only Utada Hikaru’s vocal track, it seems to be a must-have item for collectors.
