IU To Feature On Last Album Of Veteran Indie Band Sister’s Barbershop
Singer IU will be featuring on the final album of indie band Sister’s Barbershop.
According to multiple music sources, IU will be participating as a featured artist on one of their b-side tracks, as the album is set to release on June 1. Famous music critic Kim Jae Ga praised IU through his social media, saying, “IU shows more of her skill through this song than through any other song that she has previously featured in.”
IU has consistently collaborated with a variety of artists such as G-Dragon, Kim Chang Wan, and Hyukoh, proving herself as a versatile artist.
She shared her thoughts on collaborating with the indie group through an Instagram post, with a caption that said, “I was able to participate in a follow up track for the last album of Sister’s Barbershop, a group that I have liked since I was a kid. It’s been a little over a year since I received my first email from senior Lee Seok Won. As I watched them put the album together little by little from afar, I learned so much as a fan and as a junior musician. It is an honor that I was able to participate in your last album. I will not forget the respect and care you’ve shown me.”

제가 어릴 때부터 좋아해 왔던 #언니네이발관 선배님들의 마지막 앨범에 수록곡으로 참여하게 됐습니다. 이석원선배님께 처음 메일을 받은 후로부터 벌써 1년이 넘게 지났어요. 그 시간 동안 멀리서나마 이 마지막 앨범을 한 겹 한 겹 신중하게 만드시는 모습을 지켜보면서 팬으로서, 후배로서 많이 배웠습니다! 마지막 앨범이라니 참 많이 아쉽고 또 그런 중요한 앨범에 한 부분 참여할 수 있게 되어 영광입니다! 작업 내내. 한참 어리고 한참 후배인 저에게 보여주셨던 존중과 배려 잊지 않겠습니다? #언니네이발관 #마지막앨범_홀로있는사람들
