K-pop singer XIA has made some last minute changes before releasing a new album commemorating his forthcoming world tour.
XIA was originally scheduled to drop the repackaged album of "TARANTALLEGRA," but has made some last minute changes to the plan to roll out a new single titled "UNCOMMITTED" on August 23, according to C-JeS' press release Wednesday.
"Whereas his first solo album 'TARANTALLEGRA' showed his belting strength in music and performance, the new single album will be a chance for the artist to show his charm as a vocalist," an official said in the statement, stressing that the firm is expecting quite a reaction from global fans as this is an English-language tune.
Along with the English-language title track, the officials said "UNCOMMITTED" will also list the english version of SIA's last title song "TARANTALLEGRA."
Though the exact date has yet to be revealed, the agency officials noted that "UNCOMMITTED" and its music video will become available for streaming online during the third week of August.
Born Kim Junsu, XIA is set to launch the artist's first-ever world tour at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York, the United States on August 30.
He will continue to meet his overseas fans in Los Angeles, the United States, Mexico City in Mexico, Sao Paulo in Brazil and Santiago in Chile, according to the firm's previous statements.
