Kodama (木霊, Japanese for Tree Spirit) is the fifth studio album by French act Alcest, released on 30 September 2016 by Prophecy Productions.

It is a concept album about “the confrontation of the natural world and the human world”, inspired by Hayao Miyazaki’s film Princess Mononoke. Musically the album is a return to the band's earlier blackgaze style, due to Neige’s feeling that he “needed to go for something more punchy, darker, and more personal too.”

It’s their last release under Prophecy Productions.
