    With her comeback just around the corner, singer IU has revealed the teaser image for her 3rd full album on the 17th.

    Loen Entertainment had stated, "IU will release her 3rd full album 'Modern Times' on October 7th and will officially start her promotions as a singer. Before that, we had revealed an illustration of a guide map that contains a big hit about the 3rd album as well as a teaser IU image."

    A worker who had participated in the creation of IU's new album had revealed, "Since IU has a strong image as an idol, we were worried about what kind of music she would create next. So we were surprised to hear that the new songs were pretty heavy and solemn. There will be a big difference from the image of IU that most people liked."

    The illustration of a guide map that was revealed along with IU's comeback announcement contained hints about each of her songs, heightening the anticipation of her upcoming album.

    The teaser image revealed a picture of a more fierce and alluring IU with long wavy hairstyle showing off her femininity. It also revealed her transformation from her 'nation's little sister' image to a more mature image.

    IU's new chic charms shone through in the picture as she was seen sitting on the floor with only one heel on while holding onto her guitar with a mysterious gaze.

    Producer Cho Youngcheol had led the production of IU's 3rd album 'Modern Times' for over the course of 9 months and the album will include variety of high quality songs such as Jazz, Bossa Nova , Swing, Latin Pop and Folk.

    Yep. There's lots of other clues in there too, this Twitter user has identified 7 potential song titles:

    Since IU has already done a song called Secret, I wonder if this could be an acoustic version or some other reimagining of that song.

    I'm loving this transition from her cute side to her more mature vibe.
    She doesn't need to have revealing clothing to be sexy. She's just sexy, period.
    Also, I like how this album and her clothing seem to have a vintage feel to it.
    Ahhhh! I'm fan girling too much from these pictures :hungover:

    Looking forward to her variety of genres in her album, especially Jazz.
    Can't wait to see how the dance choreography will look like...
    IU FIGHTING! Your comeback will be a huge success! :embarrassed:

    And as always thanks for the speedy translations ~~
