The group will make a grand return to the K-pop scene with their second studio album, “Just Us,” to be released on July 29. The title track, “Back Seat,” will be an urban R&B song.
“Instead of feeling the burden of making a great album, we just wanted to portray our true selves in the album,” the group said.
The teaser video for “Back Seat” is set to be unveiled online on July 22.
“A recently released teaser photo of the album has drawn explosive responses from fans and K-pop insiders at home and abroad. The fans’ expectations for the album will grow even more once the teaser of the music video is out,” their agency C-Jes Entertainment said.
The album will include 13 tracks including self-written and English songs that the group has worked on in Korea and the U.S.
Their comeback comes nearly three years after their debut studio album “In Heaven,” released in 2011. The three members have since been pursuing solo activities in various fields including dramas, musicals and film.
Following the album’s release, JYJ will hold the third “JYJ Membership Week” expo in Seoul from July 31-Aug. 3 for their fan clubs. The event has been held annually in the capital for free since 2012, drawing more than 20,000 fans each year from home and abroad.
The band has also scheduled its Asia concert tour “The Return of the King,” with the first concert to kick off on Aug. 9 in Seoul. The idols are set to visit eight cities across Asia including Hong Kong, Beijing and Shanghai.
