Hot on the heels of the news that the Kingdom Hearts series is coming to Steam next month, recording artist Hikaru Utada has released the English re-recording of the series’ hit theme, “Simple and Clean.”

This new version of what's arguably Kingdom Hearts’ de facto theme song is part of Utada’s greatest hits album, Science Fiction, which was released last month and features multiple re-recordings of their hit songs. Last month, Utada released the re-recorded version of “Hikaru”, the Japanese version of “Simple and Clean”.
