Utada - You Make Me Want To Be A Man
21-year-old singer/songwriter Utada is set to unlease her enigmatic fusion of alternative, pop, dance and funk grooves on the UK in the form or her debut Mercury Records release, 'Exodus' on September 26th.

'Exodus' is Utada's first English language album, it follows 3 previous albums which have sold over 20 million copies in Japan, all entering #1 on the Japanese album chart. Her debut album sold 10 million copies making it the biggest selling album in Japanese history and stayed at #1 for 6 weeks.

Utada composes, writes and arranges all the songs on 'Exodus', infusing her music with seductive, witty lyrics and well-crafted melodies. She is joined on her debut album by some outstanding special guests that reflect her varied tastes: drummer Jon Theodore from Mars Volta delivers an infectious groove on ?Kremlin Dusk;? and master producer Timbaland, who adds his funky touch to ?Exodus '04?, ?Wonder 'Bout? and ?Let Me Give You My Love.?

'Exodus' will be supported through a unique 'MTV Digital Discovery' launch on MTV international websites by featuring a special series of Utada animations, videos and high editorial support, together with an MTV interview, digital downloads and an exclusive MTV First Listen album preview stream.

Raised in NY in a musical family (her father is a musician/producer and her mom was a beloved traditional-style Japanese singer in Japan), Utada was fed a diverse musical diet of The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Metallica, The Police, and Dr. Dre, all of whom left their mark on Utada's musical style. At age 13, she was approached by Toshiba EMI to write several Japanese pop songs, resulting shortly thereafter in her first major album for the label in 1999. The million selling release catapulted Utada to Superstar status at just 15 years of age.

Her debut single 'You Make Me Want To Be A Man' will be released on September 19th, the track is accompanied by a 500k, dark, futuristic video which was directed by Kaz Kiriya.
