Deep River is the third studio album (fourth overall) released by Japanese singer-songwriter Hikaru Utada, released on June 19, 2002. It sold just over 2.35 million copies in its first week of release, charting at number one on the weekly, monthly and yearly Oricon charts. Deep River is ranked as Japan’s fifth-highest album in debut sales, and eighth in the all-time album sales in Japan. The final track, “Hikari”, would be her first single to reach number one on the Oricon Weekly Singles chart three times, and the Japanese version of the theme song for Square Enix’s RPG video game, Kingdom Hearts. The English version, “Simple and Clean”, (released on her “Colors” single), also accompanied promotion of Kingdom Hearts in overseas versions. The album was cited by many fans and critics as Utada’s most acclaimed work, as well as achieving the Triple Crown at the 17th Golden Disc Awards in Japan.
