Additional Info on Lee Hi’s New Single, ‘Scarecrow’, Revealed
With Lee Hi’s new ballad single’s release imminent, additional information about the new song is slowly emerging.
YG unveiled the title of Lee Hi’s new single as Scarecrow on November 22 and also posted up the lyrics sheet used by the rising singer through its official YG blog on the same day.
Scribbled and marked on by Lee Hi herself, the lyrics sheet showed Lee Hi making sure she paid attention to the advice and criticism of Yang Hyun Suk during her recording and also included a few cute drawings the singer had etched out, including a smiling scarecrow.
Initially the news that Park Jin Young had written the new single was met with some disappointment by JYP fans as even Baek Ah Yeon and Park Ji Min, both fellow K-Pop Star alumni, had not received a JYP-composed single for their debut.
However, YG Entertainment expounded, “This song was produced, written and composed by JYP’s Park Jin Young but actually this isn’t a song that Park Jin Young wrote personally for Lee Hi. A few years ago, the first song Park Jin Young wrote for YG on our request was Scarecrow but we weren’t able to use it for the last few years for a variety of reasons. However, it is a song that CEO Yang really treasured and held onto, which he eventually passed on to Lee Hi.”
The agency also revealed its plans for a tamed down promotion for the single.
A separate music video for the single will not be made and Lee Hi will be performing the song in shows in a subdued manner without the use of eclectic outfits or back dancers.
Even the single’s cover will be graced by a simple drawing by Lee Hi without any additional photo shoots.
The song is described as an R&B ballad and will be the follow-up single for Lee Hi after her smash hit, 1,2,3,4.
