Shin Hye Sung′s ′Winter Poetry′ Draws More Participation from Indie Musicians
Shinhwa′s Shin Hye Sung will be going solo for the first time in a year with the release of his special winter album.
The singer′s solo album Winter Poetry will be released online at noon (KST) on December 4, along with the album′s offline release on the same day.
The album comes a year after his previous solo special album embrace, which was released in December 2011.
According to Liveworks Company, Winter Poetry is a special album that will present fans with warm winter music, and is an extension of the feelings contained in embrace.
Like the title implies, the lyrics for each song sing of winter as if they were poems. A total of eight tracks are included in the album, including the promotional single It′d Be Nice If It Were You.
The songs of Winter Poetry were written by Mate member Lim Heon Il, who produced all the songs in embrace, and composer Lee Ahn. They also drew participation from the familiar names of embrace, Walrus′ bassist Yang Si On and Mystic Puzzle′s singer/songwriter Park Asher, as well as new names such as Lim Heon Il′s fellow Mate member Jeong Jun Il.
It′d Be Nice If It Were You was composed and lyricized by Lim Heon Il, and contains lyrics that talk of a longing to share every moment of love with a loved one on a groovy rhythm, modern rock sounds and medium tempo melodies.
Director Kim Kwang Seok, who directed the music video for Shinhwa′s Venus, helmed the production of the music video for the song.
Shin Hye Sung plans to continue promoting after the release of his Winter Poetry album and its music video on December 4.
