    Album details

    A gift of heartbeating anticipation from IU
    The full edition of IU's 3rd album with new sweet songs included : [Modern Times - Epilogue]


    IU, who once again proved herself to be a chart killer by sweeping the music charts after 1 year and 5 months, will be releasing her repackaged 3rd album, 'Modern Times - Epilogue' on the 12th of December. As the title of the album puts it, it is a repackaged album reborn with a concept that is all-inclusive of the contents of the full-length 3rd album. Besides the original 13 tracks, IU also helped to compose and write the lyrics for two new songs, heightening everyone's anticipation for the new album. While maintaining the vintage genre of the original album, the songs 'See You on Friday' and 'Crayon' which suit the sweet atmosphere of winter, once again confirm IU's capabilities as a developing singer-songwriter.

    Also, DVD-1 with unreleased cuts from the 3rd album and Epilogue, DVD-2 with live recordings from IU's 2nd solo concert in Seoul and Busan, and a special photobooklet will be included in this repackaged album, which wil only have 10,000 limited copies, as a special year-end gift for the fans.



    1. See You on Friday (Feat. Jang Yijeong of HISTORY) Song and lyrics by IU / Arranged by Lee Jongmin

    “‘See You on Friday’ is a song about a girl and a boy who are in love with one another and are nervous about what they should do. The part of romance that is the most thrilling is right before going into it. I felt that a first date during a winter like this which is all red and blue and sparkly nowadays would be like that. Starting with a gentle guitar accompaniment, then progressing to a swing rhythm in the second half, through the rhythm, I wanted to express the kind of pitter-patter heartbeat during such a thrilling period.” - IU


    2. Crayon ('Pretty Man' drama OST) Lyrics by IU / Composed and arranged by KZ and Electron Man

    “This is a song about the romance of a girl who is head over heels in love with someone that it makes her head swim just thinking about him. Without caring, she (wants to?) confess to him every single day. Although it's sad that she likes him more, in a way, she feels happy too. Since it's beyond her control who she likes. I'm emotional so rather than a bland and boring life, I want to experience things like sorrow, happiness, love, regret to the maximum.” - IU
