NEXT LEVEL (ネクスト・レベル) is Ayumi Hamasaki's tenth full studio album on avex trax. The album was released as a conclusion to her 10th anniversary celebration, after the "Days/GREEN" and "Rule/Sparkle" singles.

The album was Hamasaki Ayumi's first to be released in the USB memory format. The USB drive was silver colored and stylized to resemble Ayu's 10th Anniversary single-winged heart logo. One partition included the album, but the remainder of the drive was blank for personal use.

The album was released in 3 other formats: CD-Only, CD+DVD, and 2CD+DVD. The DVD included the album's promotional videos and making-of clips as usual. The second audio disc on the 2CD+DVD version included performances from PREMIUM COUNTDOWN LIVE 2008-2009, mostly of songs rarely if ever performed live including "End of the World," "For My Dear...," and "SCAR."
