Island Records has released a press release for UTADA. It states that Utada's debut Album is titled, EXODUS, and is confirmed, once again, to be out Fall 2004.
Other song titles mentioned are:
"Kremlin Dusk" with drummer Jon Theodore from Mars Volta
"Exodus '04", "Wonder 'Bout", and "Let Me Give You My Love" produced with Timbaland
It is also stated that the "young star composes, writes and arranges all her songs, infusing her music with seductive, witty lyrics and well-crafted melodies."
Well, we already knew that she composes, writes, and arranges all her songs but their description tells us that her US material will definately not be anything like her Japanese material.
