"~Mermaid~" is the second single from Japanese pop singer Hitomi Shimatani's fifth studio album, "Heart&Symphony", and her eighteenth single overall. "~Mermaid~" is described as a mixture between dance, pop, and has some presumably gothic undertones due to the "dark" sound of the song and the organ and harpsichord used in parts of the song. The b-side, 風の降る空 "(Kaze no Furu Sora)" is a symphonic ballad, incorporating a string section, piano, and an acoustic guitar.

The single hit #18 on the Oricon charts and is reported to have sold around 20,500 copies.
