SHINee arrive at the red carpet of the 2015 Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA) at AsiaWorld-Expo on Dec. 2, 2015 in Hong Kong.

It's their first Korean release since the passing of member Jonghyun in December 2017.

Korean boy band SHINee will release a new album in May to coincide with their 10th anniversary.

SHINee announced the news through social media on Sunday night (April 30.) In a post on Twitter, it was revealed that the four members will release a new album at the end of May, and will also hold a "SHINee Day" fanmeeting in Seoul on May 27. It will be their first time interacting with South Korean audiences since the passing of member Jonghyun last December.

The iconic K-pop act released their first single “Replay” on May 22, 2008. Since then, the act rose to prominence through the likes of “Lucifer,” “Everybody,” “View,” and other hit singles. They topped the World Albums chart on multiple occasions, and saw six albums place on the Heatseekers Albums chart since 2013.

The new album will be their first Korean release since Jonghyun died by suicide last year, a tragic loss that was mourned by the K-pop industry and fans around the world. SHINee released their Japanese best of album From Now On earlier this month. Over the weekend, the group released an animated music video for their swing and jazz-tinged song "Every Time" off of that album.
