On Monday, IU posted a teaser image for the new single on Instagram with the comment, “October 10 (at) 6 p.m. BBI BBI.”
The new EP comes after a yearlong hiatus for the singer, who released cover album “A Flower Bookmark #2” in September 2017.
“Originally, there was no official plan for the release of the new EP,” said IU’s agency, Kakao M, Monday. “But 2018 is a special year as it is IU’s 10th anniversary, so IU wanted to give a surprise gift to her fans, who have waited a long time for a new song.”
IU will embark on her Asia tour, “2018 IU 10th Anniversary Tour Concert - Dlwlrma,” in late October. It will run through December with performances in seven cities including Hong Kong, Singapore and Bangkok.
