Various online Japanese CD retailers (neowing.co.jp, yesasia.com, cdjapan.co.jp) have posted to their catalogs, a new English Utada Album to be released November 24th, 2010. It is a sixteen track greatest hits album of her American work. No word yet on any releases for outside of Japan.

[UPDATE] (Oct.24.2010)
Utada tweeted to fans today regarding the upcoming Universal Japan release of "Utada The Best", a compilation 'best of' album of her English work, and how it is being release without her blessing.

The release of "Utada the best" is entirely against my will. I wish that my fans won't have to buy it. There's no new material in it.

In other Japanese posts, she even mentions how Universal was deciding on releasing this "Utada The Best" compilation album at the same time as her ?Single Collection Vol. 2? that is being released by EMI. Utada says that more detail about this will be released later on.

[UPDATE #2](Oct.25.2010)
Utada has just posted an more detailed message about this "Utada The Best" issue on her U3music.com blog. She talks about the circumstances to which this other compilation album is being released, and her feelings about it and how it 'coincides' with her EMI release of UHSC2. She seems concerned about how this release will affect her fans. You can read the English translation here
