Other contributors on IU’s new album include Ryan S. Jhun, Naul, WOOGIE, PENOMECO, AKMU’s Lee Chan Hyuk and PEEJAY.
The 10-track album will be the singer’s first studio album since 2017’s ‘Palette’, and her first project since her 2019 mini-album ’Love Poem,’ which featured the tracks ‘Above the Time’ and ‘Blueming’. Last year, she released the single ‘Eight’ featuring Suga of BTS.
In a December 2020 interview with GQ Korea, IU revealed that the upcoming album would an ode to the end of her twenties. “This is an album I wanted to make to say my goodbye greetings to those who have watched over my twenties, and to say thanks to those who will watch until the very end of it,” said the 27-year-old singer.
