FTISLAND are certainly full of surprises!
Only a week ago, we thought that we were getting a Korean comeback – and that’s still not out of the question, in my opinion anyway – but, they’ve announced a Japanese comeback and tour for August and September this year.
The new track to be called ‘Pretty Girl‘ will be the group’s 18th Japanese single and is reported to be dedicated to Primadonna‘s around the world. It’s a song that has been written by Hongki himself.
‘Pretty Girl‘ is scheduled for release on August 22, but we’ve already got the first teaser clip. It’s only a short 19-seconds long, but we get distinct late-summer vibes from the track. It has a fresh, vibrant, laid-back tropical feel to it, but there’s almost a hint of reggae involved. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see what they have in store for us.
The imagery and concept matches perfectly with the tropical late-summery feel of the teaser.
