Earlier this week, CL released a cryptic teaser for ‘ALPHA’. It featured the singer standing in front of a projection of an exploding volcano, with sirens blaring in the background. The words “ALPHA” and “coming soon” are then flashed onscreen at the end of the video.
‘ALPHA’ will be CL’s debut full-length album, following her 2019 comeback project ‘In the Name Of Love‘. The record was initially slated for release in November 2020 but was delayed to make room for further improvements.
During an interview with W Korea in June, the singer explained that she postponed the record’s release after realising that “there were a lot of things I needed to experience in order to learn”.
“After working with a team I created on my own, there were a lot of new things I learned and discovered. I want to release it sometime in the summer,” she added. By the end of July, her agency Very Cherry announced that ‘ALPHA’ is slated for release this month. However, an exact release date and further details have yet to be revealed
