Eric Nam Reveals Plans to Release ‘Brand New Album’ This Summer – Billboard
Eric Nam is gearing up for a busy 2023. South Korean singer caught up billboard news and gave fans an idea of what to expect from him in the coming months, explaining what inspired him to release a re-recorded version of his 2022 album. Roundtrip.
Roundtrip was released in January 2022. The set ranked 22nd in BillboardTop Album Sales chart, but Nam wanted to re-record it to keep up with people’s diminishing attention to music.
“I felt that in this day and age, music… people get bored very quickly. They get tired of everything very quickly, but that doesn’t mean you wrote a bad song,” he said of the repackaged album, which came out earlier this month. “I feel like the art was so short so I wanted to give people a reason to come back to some songs that I think are great because they weren’t a single.”
As for what’s next for Nam, the singer tweeted on March 15 and teased that “Eric Nam’s new era is about to begin” which could be even sooner than fans think. “I have a brand new album that I think I will release in the summer? And a tour shortly after that!” He said billboard news host Tetris Kelly.
