Solo artist Sunmi will drop her new single “Heroine” on Jan. 18, her agency MakeUs Entertainment said Tuesday, about five months after she released the infectious dance pop song “Gashina.”

A teaser image released on her official social media account showed roses of different colors frozen in a chunk of ice. Roses have been an overarching image and concept for her East-Asia-inspired “Gashina.”

According to the agency, Sunmi once again worked with The Black Label -- a music production label under YG Entertainment that had produced “Gashina” -- for “Heroine.” She also took part in penning the song.

Sunmi, formerly of now defunct K-pop group Wonder Girls, debuted solo in 2013 with “24 Hours.” “Gashina” marked her first release since leaving JYP Entertainment in 2015. She joined MakeUs Entertainment in March last year.
