On February 29, SHINee released their Japanese debut album in South Korea. SHINee’s album, “The First,” was originally released in Japan in June of 2011. Through their promotions the popular group had the opportunity to meet with a wide variety of music fans. The response was positive.

The album is available in two versions: a regular CD release and a CD and DVD version. “The First” is made up of twelve songs: five new songs “Better,” “To Your Heart,” “Always Love,” “Start,” “Seesaw,” and the group’s classic hits “Replay,” “Juliette,” “Lucifer,” “Amigo,” “Love Like Oxygen,” “Hello,” and “The SHINee World.”

The DVD will include the group’s appearance at the Abbey Road Studios in London, England as well as SHINee’s Japanese debut showcase. There will be five stages of live events and bonus video footage of interviews with the members.

As a bonus the CD version will include “Stranger” which is the theme song for the drama “Stranger 6.” This addition to the album makes fans even more excited.

Coming up in April SHINee will hold a seven cities tour in Japan. “The First Japan Arena Tour-SHINee World 2012” will begin on April 25 in Fukuoka, Japan.
