Singer Soyou, who recently announced that she would be making a comeback, revealed the story of how she received a song from Lee Hyori.
Lee Hyori, who is also in the same agency as Soyou, was working on a song with musician Babylon, when they realized Soyou would be the perfect fit for the track.
Being eight months since her last comeback, Soyou held a brief Q&A with Tenasia to talk about her album process.
How do you feel about releasing a new song after eight months?
I’m excited because it actually feels longer than eight months. This new song was released with the hope that it would heal even a little bit to many people.
This new track is gaining attention with the participation of Lee Hyori and Babylon. We also heard that it was a gift from these two. Can you tell us how this happened?
I was thankful that Lee Hyori contacted me first and let me listen to the song and told me ‘how about singing this song during this difficult time?’ I’ve kept in touch with Babylon because we’ve always wanted to work on a song together so I was thankful to receive this song.
How was it like working with Lee Hyori and Babylon? Was there something different from your previous work?
We minimized the use of instruments because I wanted to focus on my voice, giving it the feeling of talking right next to someone.
What did you focus on the most while recording?
I made a lot of effort to sing it so that it would be easy on the listeners’ ear. As I said earlier, I wanted to give it the feeling of talking to one another.
What kind of song do you want “Good Night My Love” to become for the public?
I really wanted to listen to the people around me. I wanted to be a good listener to those that were having a hard time, and I also think I need it too.
Are there any stories about filming the music video?
Aside from any episodes, I want more people to listen and watch the music video itself. Thankfully, the director recommended actor Yeon Je Wook. I want to express my sincere gratitude to the actors who were willing to help with my video.
What is one last thing you would like to say to your fans?
I know it’s been awhile since I’ve released a new song and I hope that you can listen to it comfortably. You all did well today.
Soyou’s new single Good Night MY LOVE will release on March 11 at 6 PM KST.
