Singer Kim Hyun Joong has confirmed he will release a new Japanese album in June, entitled “Hot Son”, as well as a single of the same name. The new material will be the long-awaited follow up to last year’s “Tonight”, and will mark a much-anticipated musical comeback from the former SS501 star.
The details of the new release were confirmed by Japanese newspaper Sankei Sports.
The new album will also feature collaboration from songwriter and producer Steven Lee. The producer has worked with the star since his SS501 days, and produced “Tonight”, as well as the hit single “Lucky Guy”.
According to Nikkan Sports, another Japanese newspaper, the album sleeve reveals “an exciting new look” for the singer.
Kim Hyun Joong was quoted as saying, “I am really pleased to be going back to Japan. The new material is really great. Fans can really look forward to it.”
The singer most recently appeared in KBS drama “Age of Feeling”, a series for whose OST he also contributed a song. He is also set to appear at an “Age of Feeling”-themed event in Yokohama on May 31.
