Bootleg is the fourth album by Kenshi Yonezu, released on November 1, 2017. It is his first album with Sony Music and won the Album of the Year award at the Japan Record Awards.

Background[edit]

"Dune" (or Sand planet) is the birthday song for Hatsune Miku, which Yonezu sings himself on the album. Yonezu considered titling the album Dune as he was confident that he could make beautiful music, and want to prove it to people. He later decided to use Bootleg as the title.[1]
