According to SM Entertainment, ‘Sherlock,’ the title song of SHINee’s 4th mini album, is the definitive edition of the so-called hybrid remix, which mixes two independent songs into a new song. It will present a unique charm by making one feel like watching a musical and reveal the distinctive music color of SHINee, a contemporary band, who has been recognized for their fresh and experimental music and performances.
Especially, the lyrics tell the story of Sherlock, who solves a criminal case by combining the rational clue ‘Clue’ and intuitive ‘Note.’ Therefore, the song gives a smart charm by connecting the lyrics of the two different songs flawlessly into a piece.
Since the two songs ‘Clue’ and ‘Note,’ which make up ‘Sherlock,’ will also be included in the album and let listeners compare the hybrid remix version of ‘Sherlock’ and its original version, it is expected that the album will receive an explosive response from music fans.
Moreover, all the 7 songs in the mini album will be released worldwide on March 19th through Korean music websites and iTunes and the album ‘Sherlock’ will be available in stores from March 21st.
According to Nate, On March 16, SHINee released medley of tunes from its upcoming new album ‘Sherlock’ along with teaser images of the members in all-new style. This promotional video has been posted on SHINee’s official web site and online social sites such as Facebook and Kakao Talk Plus Friend.
SHINee’s ‘Sherlock’ is officially to be released worldwide on March 19 through various Korean music services and Itunes. Starting from Korea on March 21, the album will be available in stores in Asia, including Taiwan, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Philippine, Indonesia and China.
The title song, also named ‘Sherlock,’ will be sensational – the original ‘Hybrid Remix’ music is mixed with choreography by Tony Testa, a world renowned dancer who has also worked with Michael and Janet Jackson and Kylie Minogue. SHINee makes a grand comeback on Mnet’s ‘M-Conutdown’ on March 22 and officially starts the promotion for ‘Sherlock.’
