～The sound and the words are flowing in the air. It is a paradise where words and spirits are fantastically flying around...
This is the fifth original album in total, three years after the previous original album, "Mitamanofuyu ~Divine Support~," and including the cover album "The songs of Japan" (Children's Songs "Kokoro no Furusato")," which was released 2019.
With new composer, arranger, and producer Seikou Nagaoka and supervisor Naoki Tachikawa, this album is the culmination of Suzue’s world up to now.
The album includes four newly written songs, five songs including "Rakuen (Paradise)," a cover of Sarah Brightman's famous cover of "Stranger in Paradise 'Dattanjin no Odori'" with her own interpretation, and four songs from her first album "Umashiashikabi" to her third album "Mitamanofuyu ~Divine support~," including her most popular songs. The album includes 10 songs in total, including 4 of her most popular songs from her first album "Umashiashikabi" to her third album "Mitama no fuyu ~Divine support~".
This is a new approach to Suzue’s world, utilizing the characteristics of the Shinto priesthood to depict the depths of the human condition.
The previous album, "The songs of Japan Kokoro no Furusato," was produced by Toshiki Kadomatsu, and was a cover album planned to preserve in one form works to be sung to the next generation, based on the desire to "deliver to the children who will lead the next generation" nostalgic children's songs and shoka that are rarely sung in the field of education. The album was completed with the cooperation and sponsorship of many in the shrine industry.
