Nadja wrote all lyrics, vocals and choruses on the album herself, with arrangements coming from Sly & Robbie, Japanese producers and composers Yasuaki Shimizu and Akira Inoue, Japanese musician Hiroaki Goto, and French composer Areski Belkacem.

Originally released in 1989 as a promo-only CD on Japanese label Polystar, Studio Mule’s release of Tsukihoshihi marks the album’s first reissue.

It follows Studio Mule sister label Mule Musiq’s release of Fantastic Man’s debut album Utopioid, this October.
