New album release coming in December: “My child is finally coming out !” Jolin says

99768072

Jolin’s new album has been in preparation for 2 years now.

At the beginning of last year, she started to have new ideas quite often. Some songs have been recorded, then scrapped, it was an almost neverending process…

…But recording should finally be completed in October according to Jolin’s agent, Tom Wang !
In November she’s supposed to go overseas to shoot MV(s) and album covers.

Jolin is very excited, she stated: “My child is finally coming out !”

What we know about the upcoming album at the moment:

  • It will feature different music styles, be “more adventurous”, and completely different than 呸 PLAY ;
  • Invitations have been sent to singers for a collaboration ;
  • 11 tracks are scheduled ;
  • One song has lyrics by Ashin from Mayday ;
  • Songs are mostly dance music ;
  • Each album presents what Jolin likes at the moment. She’s been studying brain science and reading many books about psychology, and even reading 庄子 Zhuang Zhou to understand herself better and prepare the new album, she’s talking about things “close to her”, so it should be her most honest album ever ;
  • There might be no physical version, at some point Jolin was thinking of not releasing any ;
  • Album’s theme will be women: “I want to talk more about females. Because I have been exploring some social and mental phenomena related to females in recent years now I have a lot to say to girls. And I also want to say something on behalf of women. Therefore that’s the direction my new album is [heading] to.”

The new album’s release is expected for December, 4 years and 1 month after 呸 PLAY.
It’s not sure yet whether it will be released under Warner Music Taiwan or not.

Jolin attends press conference for Anessa (Shiseido), talks about the new album release and her meeting with Tom Cruise

Jolin attended a press conference for Anessa (sunscreen by Shiseido) in Taipei today.

Here’s a summary of what has been said at this event:

► Jolin has been busy working on the new album, she even put aside a cake competition to focus on music

► The new album will be released this year, it’s scheduled for December according to reports

► Single release in June confirmed

► Jolin has been watching Tokyo Joshi Zukan* recently
* Japanese drama: https://jdramas.wordpress.com/2016/12/18/tokyo-joshi-zukan/

► About her first meeting with Tom Cruise in 2000: she was very nervous and afraid of making mistakes. Fortunately on the video we can only see her back, the look on her face was probably very embarrassing

► About her second meeting with the American actor last Wednesday: Tom Cruise is a very kind and enthousiastic man, they had a nice chat. Usually with stars you feel a certain distance but not with him.
Jolin also admires his working attitude, she said laughing “it’s curious how he does not have to rest!”
