The title track “Summer Dream” is a trendy dance number that will “cool off the summer heat,’ said Jung’s agency FNC Entertainment. Jung and Japanese model Laren Tsai played lovers in a fledgling romance in the recently-released music video.

“Summer Calling” will feature four new songs including “Make You Mine” and “Life is a Party,” along with songs from Jung’s recent EP “Do Disturb.”

The EP’s lead track “That Girl” was a cheery, upbeat song featuring rapper Loco.

In commemoration of the release, the singer will kick off a tour in four Japanese cities on Aug. 22.

Jung is the leader and vocalist of CN Blue, a four-man boy band formed in 2010 that consists of Jung, Lee Jong-hyun, Kang Min-hyuk and Lee Jung-shin.
