twilight was haruka nakamura’s second album, released in the summer of 2010. The album spawned the haruka nakamura classics such as twilight, ongaku no aru fuukei, curtain call, harmonie du soir and hikari. Upon release it was seen (and still is) as a haruka nakamura masterpiece. twilight marks a milestone not only for the artist but also remains the best-selling album on KITCHEN. LABEL in over a decade.
Recorded in a studio overlooking the ocean as a tribute to the sight of the expiring sun falling slowly over the horizon at dusk, twilight is a sustained reverie that mirrors the dwindling rays of light at day’s end with its subtle variations in timbre and texture.
To celebrate its 10th anniversary, the iconic album will be available for the first time on vinyl and the re-releasing of the much sought after original first press CD + art book edition. Included in the reissue are 8 previously unreleased tracks recorded during the original sessions in 2010. Remastered by long-time collaborator Gen Tanabe, the reissue features artwork faithful to the original design with the addition of liner notes written by Toshhiko Terada of Ameto Kyujitsu.
