Studio Ghibli's The Tale Of The Princess Kaguya gets its first vinyl release, as part of the best-selling vinyl series featuring legendary composer Joe Hisaishi. Including the beautiful theme "When I Remember This Life" sung by Kazumi Nikaido, this is the complete soundtrack to Studio Ghibli's 2013 anime The Tale Of The Princess Kaguya, composed by the studio's long-time musical collaborator Joe Hisaishi.

This is the first and the last collaborative work by director Isao Takahata and composer Joe Hisaishi. Presented on double vinyl, with laser etchings on Side D. 87th Academy Award-nominee for Best Animated Feature, 42nd Annie Awards nominee Best Animated Feature, 67th Cannes Film Festival Nominee Director's Fortnight. From Studio Ghibli, the studio that brought you the Academy Award-winning Spirited Away, comes a powerful and soaring epic that redefines animated storytelling and marks a triumphant highpoint within an extraordinary filmmaking career for director and studio co-founder Isao Takahata.

Found inside a shining stalk of bamboo by an old bamboo cutter and his wife, a tiny girl grows rapidly into an exquisite young lady. The mysterious young princess enthralls all who encounter her — but ultimately, she must confront her fate, the punishment for her crime. Director Isao Takahata's final film was nominated for an Academy Award and hailed as a masterpiece by critics. Remastered and released in a deluxe edition with new gatefold jacket artwork and liner notes. First time released on vinyl.
