I haven't heard Hatsukoi yet, but Play a Love Song is truly inspiring. That and Forevermore are tied as my current favorites of her latest singles, with Anata coming in at a very close second.

I can't wait to hear the full versions of Chikai and Don't Think Twice (I always consider her KH contributions to be comprised of two separate tracks, as she has said many times in the past that she writes the English versions first, and then re-writes them in Japanese).

I hope Don't Think Twice appears as it's own single or at least with Chikai (if she releases that as a single, which if the release date of KH3 isn't announced soon, Hikki said she'd leak the songs in full. I think she should do so anyway. The official KH3 trailers feature a clip of the songs anyway, and international KH fans who don't really listen to the rest of her catalogue would still be all over it because her music IS KH).

But I digress. I think her new album Hatsukoi is going to be phenomenal, if the singles we've already heard are any indication!
