12 Classical Compositions on Double LP!

Pitchfork 50 Best Albums of 2023 - Rated 40/50!

Milan Records is proud to release 12, an intimate collection of 12 compositions by Ryuichi Sakamoto, written and recorded in Tokyo during his fight with cancer throughout 2021-2022. Each numbered title refers to its recording date.

About the album, Sakamoto says: "….after I finally 'came home' to my new temporary housing after a big operation, I found myself reaching for the synthesizer. I had no intention of composing something; I just wanted to be showered in sound. I'll probably continue to keep this kind of 'diary.'"

Sakamoto died two months after 12 was released, and being aware that it was his final work adds emotional weight to music that appears fragile and delicate.
