Korean girl group sensations aespa have announced plans for their fourth mini album, entitled Drama.
Slated for release on November 10th, Drama has been touted as a record that “showcases aespa’s vocal growth with a variety of genres including charismatic hip-hop, lovely bright dance music, and sweet acoustic pop.” The teaser artwork presents a sharp and boldly chromatic logo – offset by an intriguing ‘intro’ video, which features a cryptic video projection onto a derelict building.
Concept photos and a full tracklist are expected to be revealed soon, however an official product listing hints towards the gripping backstory for Drama: “aespa brings a new chapter to their SMCU lore by writing stories on their own way through unique music and visuals – now breaking out from the trauma caused by a series of events with Season 1’s ‘SYNK OUT’ and ‘Hallucination Quest’, and also the unknown anomalies in Season 2.“
With aespa consistently elevating K-pop to new heights, Drama will be the latest instalment in their futuristic catalogue of sci-fi pop and R&B – following on from MY WORLD, which aespa dropped earlier this year and played during their first worldwide tour.
