Heart Station is the fifth Japanese studio album (seventh overall) by Utada Hikaru, which was released on March 19, 2008.

Heart Station's first week sales was 480,081 copies, collecting the lowest first week sales in Utada's career. However, it was still certified million by the RIAJ for shipments of 1 million copies in Japan, and stayed in the Oricon top 10 for 11 consecutive weeks, becoming her most successful studio album in terms of worldwide sales since the 2002 Deep River. It also managed to outsell her previous album, Ultra Blue, by nearly 100,000 copies, and became the 271st best selling album of all time in Japan.

On May 13, 2008, nearly two months after its release, reported that the digital sales of all songs on the album had surpassed 15 million downloads, and is the most downloaded album in Japan during 2008. The album also ranked as the 5th best-selling album of 2008, and best-selling studio album, as all the other albums topping the charts were compilation albums.

Heart Station was an extremely strong digital seller, becoming the #1 album of 2008 on iTunes Japan with 4 singles in the Top 100 songs.
