Limited Edition Image Album From The Iconic Japanese Anime Film Catalog Of Studio Ghibli!
First Time On Vinyl!

Following the popular LP releases of Nausicaa Of The Valley Of The Wind, Castle In The Sky, My Neighbor Totoro, Kiki's Delivery Service, Porco Rosso and Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away is finally being released on LP.

The Image Album includes 10 tracks created by Joe Hisaishi with various artists, based on a poetic note of inspirations written by Director Hayao Miyazaki during the process of film production. Remastered and released in a deluxe edition with new jacket and liner notes.

An "image album" is an LP created specifically for Japanese animations, to give a sense of characters' personalities. In Japan, sound is as important as visuals. Characters in every film and animation, even inanimate objects or feelings, have their own songs created for them. Protagonists have entire albums created for them. These audio impressions are equally as important as visual and tangible physical elements. What results is a multi-sensory experience. The "image" album soundtrack is when the composer is presented with early graphics/imagery to the film and creates a unique soundscape based on the images that will turn into the film. The songs are based on the image/atmosphere of the original comics. They are created before OST or film itself.

Vocal: U-MI, Sizzle Ohtaka, Tsunehiko Kamijo, Mosieur Kamayatsu, RIKKI
