Lullaby for the Soul (心守歌, Kokoromoriuta) is the 29th studio album by Japanese singer-songwriter Miyuki Nakajima, released in September 2001.

Contents

As a follow-up to a double A-Side single "Earthly Stars (Unsung Heroes)"/"Headlight, Taillight" that became an enduring seller, Lullaby for the Soul was greeted with relatively high anticipation. It debuted at #3 on the Oricon chart in first week (highest position since her 1996 compilation Daiginjyō which became last #1 hit), although it quickly fell off the top 100 with physical sales of less than 100,000 copies in total.Music video of the opening track was produced to promote the album, and it was later issued on compilation DVD Utahime: Live in L.A. in 2004.
