IU releases first album in 17 monthsSinger IU released her new song “Pink Shoes” just after midnight this morning - the leadoff single from her third full-length album, “Modern Times.”
Along with the single, IU released the entire 13-song album, her first record in Korea in nearly a year and a half.
Since her most recent EP, released in May last year, IU has focused on her acting career, playing a leading role in the KBS drama “You’re the Best, Lee Soon-shin.”
IU’s agency said it took nine months for the singer to put together the songs because they spanned such a wide range of genres, including swing, jazz, Latin pop and folk. She also wrote two of the songs on the album.
