Peach is such a nice little song. Worth mentioning that IU composed and even played the recorder/triangle bits in it herself. Right before I noticed it was already released, I was about to post how I'd love if the song was a stripped acoustic thing, and it ended up being pretty much that. Can't say I'm a huge fan of the recorder(flute thingy) bit, nor the super sappy lyrics, but the song is cute (and not obnoxiously so) and her voice is sooo nice. Gotta say I love whenever she goes into the low whispery register. Purr.

Anyway, Peach was just a preview of her upcoming 3-song single "Spring of a 20-year old" (She's about to turn 20 in the Korean age system, might add) which will be released on May 11th. IU is not doing any conventional broadcast promotions for the single because she's concentrating on her national 6-city tour (which sold out in about 30 minutes) in Korea. Despite that, Peach got an instant #1 on every Korean music chart.





LOEN entertainment is releasing these little teaser clips for the single. The teasers are not for a normal MV, but for a sort of a short movie-style thing they're releasing. Not really sure what it's going to be like, at first I thought it'd be something like the stuff T-ara is releasing but the "documentary" label they've put on it sounds like something else. Maybe they'll show stuff such as IU composing stuff and whatever we've already seen, along with the song in there somewhere. Or maybe it's a completely separate thing from the song.









They've also pimped out the LOEN ent Youtube page with IU pics. :3








Right, forgot to post this epic pic here. IU commands you to get your booze on!?



...nah, just trollin' with some tea. :P

I'm so in love with Peach now, the song is so cute and simple and I just love it.  It's so refreshing in a sea of overproduced pop (which I love the hell out of too, don't get me wrong) to hear such a simple arrangement that's so pure and naked.  IU is the total package.  She's cute, sweet, funny, beautiful... she has an amazing voice to boot.  It's no wonder she's one of my favorite people in all of kpop.  <3

Beautiful cover of Minnie Riperton's Loving You.  This song suits her voice well imo.  Though no one can hit those high notes like Minnie xD

Somehow this YT video has much higher audio quality on Peach, makes such a big difference imo.

The third teaser gives us some sights and sounds from Venice, Italy. Play that funky music, flute boy.

Album cover for "Spring...". Hmm, guess this should be out now.






IU chillin' in Venice in this selca from her Me2day. She also reveals her MV will be out May 11th, 2pm, not midnight. So 14 hours from now. What a tease.








Some huge-size panorama goodness from Loen ent homepage.

And here's the full video!  Get comfy, its 27 minutes long

Edit: now that I've actually watched the video.. I love every second of it!  IU's sneeze at 3:45 is sooooo cute.  Her eating the food listlessly... picking away the parts she doesn't like, adorable.  The actual MV bit was really sweet too.  Best part though is that acoustic live version of Peach during the end credits.  Just when I thought I couldn't love that song even more...  Just pure, raw IU.  She really is something special. :bow:

Really love her new songs, especially peach! It has such a gentle mellow mood to it all~ Pretty cool that she also had a hand in composing this new album. It seems she really is musically gifted but had to tend to a cutesie pop feel to the general masses...

Proud to say I own her Christmas calander btw~! ^.^
