Fans rejoice as IU’s long awaited comeback is closing in.
So far, it looks like the year-long wait is going to be more than worth it.
IU has revealed the third teaser for her upcoming EP “Chat-Shire.” The teaser, available to view below, previews the song “ZeZe.” Fans can look forward to IU’s “Chat-Shire” album to be released on Oct. 23.
While there’s a lot of excitement surrounding IU’s comeback, unfortunately the singer will not be promoting the album on traditional music shows. According to her label Loen Tree, it’s because IU wants to be as close to fans as possible.
“We’re focusing on offline performances for the promotion of IU’s fourth mini-album. Since the early stages of her album production, her focus was on meeting her fans through good stages,” said a Loen Tree representative.
According to Allkpop , the company clarified that IU’s intention was to be able to meet her fans in person instead of behind a screen. Perhaps that explains IU’s upcoming domestic tour, which will begin on Nov. 21 and Nov. 22 at the Seoul Olympic Hall. The singer will then make stops in Busan, Daegu, and Gwanju. IU’s comeback seems to be even more exciting for fans able to attend this concert series as it is his her first full-scale concert since “Real Fantasy” in 2012.
In addition to “ZeZe,” IU has also released teasers for two other songs entitled “Shoes,” and “Shower.” Once the album is released digitally on Oct. 23, fans will be able to purchase the physical mini album “Chat-Shire” on Oct. 27.
