Former KARA member Nicole is getting set to release a solo album in Japan.
According to a representative of Nicole’s agency, “Nicole will release her first Japanese solo album in April. She is still working on the album’s tracks, so its release date has yet to be determined.” Regarding the concept, they said that while nothing can be confirmed, Nicole will present a new side of herself on the album. “The new album will contain very different tracks than the ones on Nicole’s first solo album released in Korea. Similarly, the album will also showcase some of Nicole’s qualities not covered in the last album.”
The new album marks the first time that Nicole will release new material or perform in Japan since her departure from KARA last January. She had previously gained a lot of popularity there through her activities with KARA, which entered the Japanese market in 2010. Following her Japanese release, the representative also revealed that Nicole will be working on a new Korean mini-album as a follow up to her debut album, “First Romance.”
