Korean-American singer Ailee has announced that she will be releasing a brand-new studio album later this year.
On April 16, her agency Rocket3 Entertainment confirmed that the soloist will be making her return with a new project in July. Prior to the album’s release, Ailee will be making a “pre-release” comeback next month, which she calls a “special gift” to her fans.
“This ‘pre-release’ album is a special gift for Ailee’s fans, who were waiting for her comeback. She plans to bring spring vibes to her fans with her unique vocal color and expression. Please show her a lot of support,” the agency said, per Soompi.
On April 23, Ailee unveiled the tracklist for the “pre-release” album, titled ‘Lovin”. The six-track project will feature two title tracks, both featuring lyrics that were written by the singer herself.
