Joe Hisaishi, the celebrated Japanese composer behind some of the world's best-loved anime films, is releasing a brand new album on 21st February entitled Dream Songs: The Essential Joe Hisaishi – a collection of recordings from the composer himself. That same day, 30 albums from the composer's extensive catalogue will be released on streaming services worldwide for the first time ever. This marks a major milestone for Hisaishi and is the result of an international collaboration between Decca Gold and UMG Japan.

The new album celebrates Hisaishi's diverse and distinguished catalogue of compositions spanning his nearly 40-year career, including his work with acclaimed filmmakers Hayao Miyazaki and ‘Beat' Takeshi Kitano as well as selections from Studio Ghibli classics Spirited Away, My Neighbor Totoro, Howl's Moving Castle and more. Hisaishi's first official music video to ‘One Summer's Day' (from Spirited Away) was welcomed by fans, having reached one million views in the first month alone.
