Busker Busker [CJ E&M]
Cooking up ways to surprise their fans on the road to more success in the mainstream K-pop scene, indie band Busker Busker is set to drop a new album next week before going on hiatus.
The "Cherry Blossom Ending" singers, who made their official debut after winning the third place on Mnet's music audition program "SuperstarK 3" last year, are expecting another five-track set to drop on June 21, CJ E&M said in a press release Wednesday.
"The forthcoming album is meaningful in that it completes Busker Busker's first album. The new songs were originally planned to become available in a repackage album but to repay for the overwhelming love from their fans, we've decided to drop a new album without listing already-released tunes," a CJ E&M official was quoted as saying.
Spending about two to three successful months since releasing the trio's breakthrough debut album on March 29, Busker Busker sold over 100,000 copies of the release and scored 1.3 million downloads on Gaon's website, according to Gaon's figures as of May 31.
