[Album] This Is The One - Utada


This Is The One
Performer: Utada


This Is the One is the upcoming album by Japanese-American pop singer-songwriter Utada. This will be Utada's third English language album and her eighth studio album overall. The album was originally set to be released in Japan on March 4, 2009; however, the album was pushed back to March 14, 2009. In the United States, the album will be released on March 24, 2009 digitally, with the physical release slated to be May 12, 2009.


On October 23, 2007, Utada wrote a message on her Japanese blog stating that she was writing and recording demos for her next English album while simultaneously completing her fifth Japanese studio album. During her interview with Ningin on February 3, 2009, Utada states that she wanted to make a mainstream album, and the result was a more R&B influenced album because that's what currently is mainstream. In an interview with Kiwibox on February 20, 2009, Utada explains that the title of the album came about because she was going for a more mainstream sound for this record, and that it would be the "breakout" album.

Just heard Utada for the first time ever on NPR interview. I'm hooked with her beautiful voice and wonderful, healthy outlook. I wish her so much success in this country. It is long overdue.
