General Information:

LAREINE’s first single, self-released under their LA-REINE record label in 1998. This would be the very last release under that label, as they would quickly sign to SME Records after this very successful release.

The songs “Fleur” and “憂いの花が綴る愛” (Urei no hana ga tsuzuru ai) were already teased one month prior in their sampler release “憂いの花が綴る愛~L’introduction de la fleur~“. And the song “白いブーケ” (Shiroi bouquet) already existed in some form in 1995, and was already performed live, but this is the first proper recording of that song.

The first press in digipack of this single was a success, and the 1000 copies (unconfirmed) probably sold out very fast, so, three weeks later, it got repressed in far greater numbers, in a thin jewel case. This second press has four versions, each with a differently-coloured CD. It is very hard, and takes a lot of patience and luck to find all of them.

“Fleur” is one of LAREINE’s most iconic songs. On almost all lives, this song was performed, sometimes even with a section where the entire audience sings the song’s chorus together with the band. LAREINE’s fan club would also be named “Fleur”, which means “Flower” in French.

“Fleur” was also the first LAREINE song to receive a music video (PV).
