Two of Us is the fourth Japanese remix album by South Korean pop act Tohoshinki, and their first remix album as a duo. It was released on October 5, 2016, by Avex Trax.

The album contains remixes of tracks from Tohoshinki’s first four albums since becoming a duo—Tone (2011), Time (2013), Tree (2014), and With (2014). The music in the album is influenced by variations of 1950’s to 1960’s lounge music and soft rock, including surf music, bossa nova, Philly soul, and lovers rock.

Two of Us was announced on August 19, 2016 by Avex Trax through Tohoshinki’s official website. The album was created while both members of Tohoshinki were fulfilling their compulsory service in South Korea.

Rather than mixing the songs into dance or club tracks, Tohoshinki and their label opted for a more “colorful” approach to the remixes. The theme of the album focuses on relaxing sounds throughout the day, and incorporates serene beach remix styles such as lounge music. The cover of Two of Us features a colorful painting of Tohoshinki, which is based on a series of photos that Tohoshinki shot for their “Sweat / Answer” single in 2014.

On September 2, Avex Trax released short snippets of “Baby, don’t cry” and “OCEAN”.
