U-Know 'Need You Right Now': Release date, teaser poster and all you need to know about TVXQ member's solo track
Check out the gloomy noir poster for 'Need You Right Now' and accompanying music video
U-Know, whose real name is Jung Yun-ho, is further building up hype and giving fans a taste of his upcoming EP with his solo track coming just around the corner. The song is dropping sooner than you may expect, so before you miss it, you'll want to see the release date below.
Here's all you need to know for U-Know's new single, titled 'Need You Right Now'.
According to a new teaser shared by U-Know's K-pop group TVXQ on their social media, fans can expect 'Need You Right Now' to arrive on January 9, 2021.
Dubbed a 'Film Poster' by TVXQ, a new teaser was revealed on Twitter. 'Need You Right Now' may receive gritty, dark audio and visual aesthetics. A picture of the singer taking a night drive through the city is tilted at 90 degrees while the poster is designed to look as if drawn in chalk. It's visually stunning and moody and gives off film-noir vibes, much in line with the title of his new EP, 'Noir'. A similarly bleak theme was shown in a gloomy teaser pic that U-Know shared early this week for the mini-album which featured the singer wearing a black suit and walking down a concrete staircase.
Scanning the poster for clues also leaves a hint that 'Need You Right Now' is getting an accompanying music video: to the right of U-Know is a list of credits which includes director Jason Kim, music video direction and arrangement by Kihyun Kim, and many others.
So, it's evident the upcoming project takes inspiration from cinema or even crime dramas, but the exact nature of each song on the EP is yet to be revealed. 'Noir' is U-Know's second mini-album and is set to include a total of six tracks such as 'Thank U', 'Eeny Meeny', 'La Rosa' (featuring South Korean 'A-Teen' actress Shin Ye-eun), 'Time Machine', and 'Loco (House Party)', and 'Need You Right Now'. According to reports, each track will theme a different film genre.
'Noir' will release on January 18, so mark your calendars, fans.
