The 'Superstar K' champ makes his return with a ready-for-fall folk album.
After winning singing competition Superstar K 4, Roy Kim kicked off his K-pop career with a bang when his debut single "Bom Bom Bom" ruled the K-Pop Hot 100 chart for three weeks, earning the seventh biggest single of 2013. The singer-songwriter returns with his folky sophomore effort, Home, led by its heartfelt, acoustic-leaning title track.
"Home" introduces the album with its comforting, ethereal sound. The ballad is characterized by light guitar strumming, soft piano, Kim's strong-but-subtle vocals and orchestral strings led by three-time Grammy-winning producer Marc Uselli. The 21-year-old softly croons to comfort a distressed person and tells them to just come to him and be. It's never quite clear if Kim is singing to a lover, friend or even a stranger, but the ambiguity makes the song that much more universal and open to interpretation.
