Kingdom Hearts publisher Square Enix has revealed that electronic artist Skrillex will be providing the opening theme for Kingdom Hearts III.

The immensely popular Grammy-winning producer also happens to be a huge fan of Kingdom Hearts.

Skrillex is working with series veteran Hikaru Utada on a completely new song that serves as the opening theme for the game, entitled ‘Face My Fears’.

Originally, Skrillex was meant to produce a remix of Utada’s ‘Don’t Think Twice’, the song heard in most promotional trailers so far, but “owing to the pair’s friendship” this effort led to a completely new song.

Skrillex is also working with revered producer Poo Bear on the track, whose previous credits include the multi-platinum Justin Bieber song ‘What Do You Mean?’

The song will drop on the 18th January 2019, a week before the release of Kingdom Hearts III on the 29th of January for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
