Kodama (木霊, Japanese for Tree Spirit) is the fifth studio album by French blackgaze 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.
- Neige — vocals, guitars, keyboards
- Winterhalter — drums
- Indria Saray — bass

Recorded, produced and mixed by Benoît Roux and Alcest between January 2016–April 2016 in Drudenhaus Studio.
