SHINee’s Key will release his solo repackaged album ‘Killer’ in February
Key of SHINee is making his official return this month of February!
Shawls, please assemble! A few months after releasing his second solo album GASOLINE, SHINee’s Key is set to release fresh songs with his upcoming repackaged album Killer.
On January 25, the stylish vocalist issued a teaser for the upcoming album on the group’s social media profiles that mimicked the aesthetics of an old-school arcade game. It was reported in the same post that Key’s repackaged album for GASOLINE will be released on February 13, 2023, the day before Valentine’s Day!
To celebrate the release of Killer, Key will participate in a number of music and entertainment-themed shows. Additional information on the newly repackaged album has yet to be disclosed.
On social media, Shawols from all around the world have voiced their eagerness for the album’s release.
SHINee is a modern R&B boy band that debuted on May 25, 2008 and was created by SM Entertainment. Their name comes from the invented term “shine,” which means brightness, and the suffix ee, which means “the one who receives light.”
Six months have passed since the August release of Key’s second solo studio album, “Gasoline.”
The album contains three new tracks, including the title tune “Killer” as well as “Heartless” and “Easy” as bonus tracks. It also contains eleven songs from Key’s second studio album, including “Gasoline,” “I Can’t Sleep,” and “Ain’t Gonna Dance.”
In twenty-four locations, Key’s second full-length album “Gasoline” topped key local music charts including the iTunes Top Album chart.
The album “Gasoline” connects the explosive strength of gasoline to Key’s unwavering commitment to an addictive hip-hop sound.
The new album is also expected to be cherished by his global fans, as Key pulls off a broader musical spectrum.
Key is currently expanding his career portfolio by not only working on music, but also starring in variety shows.
Last year, the artist successfully wrapped up solo concerts in Seoul in October and in Yokohama, Japan the following month.
He also won various awards such as the excellence award for variety category (male) at the 2022 MBC Entertainment Awards and grand prize in the variety-idol (male) category at the KCForum 2022 Brand of the Year awards.
The veteran idol put out his first full solo album “Face” in November 2018 and released a repackaged version of “I Wanna Be” in March 2019, just ahead of his enlistment into the military.
His first LP topped the iTunes Top Albums chart in 12 regions.
Key’s first solo work was the digital single “Forever Yours,” also from November 2018, which was released some 10 years after his debut as a member of SHINee.
