Eight is the eighth studio album by Japanese band Do As Infinity, released on January 19, 2011.[1] Of the twelve music tracks on the album, four were previously released on three of Do As Infinity's singles. Two different editions of the album were released: a regular CD version and a CD+DVD limited edition. The DVD contained music videos for three songs and a short documentary.

Between September 1 and October 31, 2009, the second installment of a contest called Do! Creative!! was held to give Do As Infinity fans a chance to compose songs that the band would later perform. Of the songs received, "Everything Will Be All Right" composed by Shohei Ohi was selected to be placed on Eight.[2]
