Super Junior

For a special album release, Super Junior whipped up one of its best singles in years paired with a cinematic music video. Check out the new project's title track, "Devil," below:

Without a doubt, "Devil" is Super Junior's best single since 2011's "Mr. Simple." For too long it felt like the band needed a corny concept or hook to base their single around (i.e. a salsa sound for a song titled "Mamacita"). The track details a love so complicated that it's as if a demon is torturing you, as the band uses sexy metaphors about how a lover can cool you like a rain shower and then burn up your throat right after. There's no maniacally laughing or death-curdling screams for "Devil," it's simply a slick and sexy pop track that feels not only appropriate for the veteran boy band, but like an upgraded, cooler version of the band. 

The accompanying video takes the "Devil" thing a little more literally as the members deal with a vixen who literally sprouts a devil tale and red eyes to get her way. There's a cinematic theme going through the video as movie credits scroll through the visual that give the visual a bit more of an epic, Hollywood feel

Being touted as "special album," Devil features not only new music by Super Junior, but from a slew of its splinter groups as well that's sure to delight longtime fans. The LP includes songs by Super Junior-M (their Chinese-Korean sub-unit), Super Junior-T (the unit focused on Korea's traditional trot music), Super Junior-KRY (the vocal-focused sub-unit trio of members Kyuhyun, Ryeowook and Yesung), Super Junior-D&E (a duo unit of Donghae and Eunhyuk) and new sub-groups.

Get a taste of all the tracks below and pay particular attention to standouts like the slick-and-sexy "Simply Beautiful," the lush and acoustic guitar-driven "Stars Appear..." and the feel-good anthem "Alright" here:
