This is “Hikouki-gumo” (lit. Contrail) from Yumi Arai’s debut 1973 album of the same name. It will serve as the theme song to Hayao Miyazaki’s new movie, Kaze Tachinu (The Wind Rises).

Arai previously provided the theme song “Yasashisa ni Tsusumareta Nara” for Miyazaki’s 1989 release, Kiki’s Delivery Service.
