10 Wings is the album by Japanese singer-songwriter Miyuki Nakajima, released in October 1995.
The album consists of new studio recordings of the songs which she wrote for annual experimental theatres entitled Yakai (夜会), premiered in November 1989. Some songs already appeared on her previous studio albums released in the 1990s. They were newly recorded with the different interpretations for the album. One of them, remake version of "Two of Us" features Masanori Sera, a frontman of the Twist, on lead vocals. The lead-off track "Two Boats" was used in the 1996 film Kiri no Shigosen.
Lengthy arrangements of all the songs featured on the album are thoroughly altered from its original versions. After release of 10 Wings, Nakajima has released several similar concept albums to date; Hi -Wings- and Tsuki -Wings (1999), and Ten-Sei (2005).
