Boy band NU'EST to release first Japanese album in five years
Boy band NU'EST will release a Japanese album for the first time in five years, its agency Pledis Entertainment said on Wednesday.
"NU'EST will release a Japanese album on Oct. 7, featuring 14 tracks including an original Japanese track, titled 'Drive,'" the agency said.
This will be the first new Japanese release since "Bridge The World," the band's first full-length Japanese album that came out on Nov. 20, 2015.
"Drive" will include the title track "Drive," as well as a Japanese version of "A Song For You," a special digital single which was released last year to celebrate the band's seventh anniversary.
The title track is an elegant medium-tempo song that will make listeners feel like they're driving on the expressway, according to the agency.
NU'EST will also begin a new online video series titled "Unboxing" on Sept. 13, every Sunday through Naver V Live until Oct. 11.
The video will feature each member of the group telling stories about themselves that they've never shared before, as well as special staged group performances.
Preorders for the series begin on Aug. 10, at 6 p.m.
