Information

Love songs is the twelfth full-length studio album released by Hamasaki Ayumi. The album was released in three versions: a CD+DVD edition, a CD-only edition and a limited micro SD + USB + DVD + LP-sized photobook edition. First pressings of the CD+DVD edition came with a cardboard slipcase and special serial-number card that grants access to exclusive digital cellphone content, while first pressings of the CD-only edition came with just the serial-number card. The USB features the songs in .wav format, as well as .aiff format. The album was released on the same day as "Dream ON", a collaboration single with Urata Naoya of AAA. A limited PLAYBUTTON edition of the album was later released on March 21st, 2012.

This is Hamasaki's first album to debut with sales of less than 200,000 copies in the first week. It is certified platinum for a shipment of 250,000 copies.
