Release date

Fans don't need to wait much longer for new music from Sunmi as 'Tail' is just on the horizon, dropping on February 23, 2021, at 6 pm KST / 4 am EST

Concept

So far, Sunmi hasn't shared any previews of tracks from the album or spoken about it, so the former Wonder Girls star is keeping the theme of her new album shrouded in mystery. Although, she has posted several teasers that have left fans guessing. If we take the aesthetics of her teasers (which include her new rose tattoo, lizard candy and otherworldly cover art) as major clues, we may be getting music that takes a curious take on fantasy or dreamy music. There is also a lot of usage of flowers and one teaser shows the singer holding lizard candy without a tail, so there may be a symbolic nature to the album as well.

For those unacquainted with her music, Sunmi commonly blends a mixture of K-pop, electropop, synthpop and traces of retro, so unless the singer hasn't drastically altered her style for the new project, listeners can look forward to those types of music.

Teasers

Sunmi initially announced her comeback on February 11 with an ambiguous teaser image and the hashtag "sunmiiscoming". In another post, Sunmi can be seen with a large tattoo of roses on her arms. The red and blue tattoo covers her entire forearm, but the singer later clarified it is only a sticker tattoo that will come off in a few days. The connection between the roses and the album is due to the featured track 'What the Flower'. As mentioned above, another teaser features orange lizard candy, with one photo including its tail and another without.

Then, her latest teaser is a series of concept photos that feature the singer posing in several fantasy settings. Check out the teasers below

'Tail' will consist of two songs, its self-titled track and 'What the Flower'. Sunmi wrote the lyrics on both tracks but shares composition credits with Frants and Hong So Jin.
