IU is blossoming before for our eyes. Fresh from showing off her grown-up new look on the cover of her upcoming album, Modern Times, the K-pop princess has released a sultry video teaser for one of the album's tracks, "Between The Lips."
In the minute long clip, IU plays up her doe-eyed sex appeal with a lot of restraint; everything is super subtle, from a sly glance into the camera to a gentle tug at her dress. The music of "Between The Lips" is a sensual bossa nova groove with a little playful theatricality thrown in. It sounds quintessentially IU, but more mature.
When Modern Times drops on October 7, you can expect to hear duets with SHINee's Jonghyun, Brown Eyed Girls' Ga-in, and veteran Korean singers, Choi Baek Ho and Yang Hee Eun. Speaking of Brown Eyed Girls, IU's collaborated with one of the group's main producers, East4a, on her Ga-In duet, so that should definitely be one song to look out for.
