Chara debuted 22 years ago. She’s made 17 albums and written more than
200 songs. From all that work, Chara has chosen 12 songs to remake for JEWEL,
including fan favorites like Swallowtail Butterfly and Yasashii Kimochi,
and others, even from her independent work. They’re been rearranged by
veteran producers and the best young talent, to add new nuance and color.
Chara hopes that anyone who loves, or who has loved, will reminisce with
this soundtrack. This album is for you.
