Japanese pop singer Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, 20, has been chosen by director J.J. Abrams to provide the theme song for the Japanese release of his new film, "Star Trek Into Darkness," which opens in Japan on Aug 23.
The song, "Into Darkness," was produced by Japanese music producer Yasutaka Nakata, 33, and the director himself (Abrams has experience producing music for the American TV show "Lost"). He said he chose Kyary Pamyu Pamyu because she perfectly fits the song's image, Sankei Shimbun reported.
The singer, known for her cute fashion style, completed a successful tour across America, Europe and Asia earlier this year.
To promote "Star Trek Into Darkness" internationally, Abrams did similar collaborations with musicians from six countries to produce a different theme song for each version. Nakata said: "It was like exploring an unknown world. As a musician, it was a great experience."© Japan Today
