It is the group's first album since the passing of member Jonghyun.
SHINee's back, and their light’s back with them on their latest album.
The Story of Light, released on Monday (May 28), followed the group’s 10th anniversary celebrations last week. It's the first of three EPs that they’ll release over the next few weeks to commemorate their decade in the industry, and the K-pop boy band’s first album as a quartet following the passing of member Kim Jonghyun late last year.
Fronted by the single “Good Evening,” The Story of Light features five tracks. It kicks off with the eclectic “All Day All Night” with its erratic beat and dynamic tonal shifts, and leads into “Good Evening.” The song recalls SHINee’s 2015 hit “View” with its deep house vibe, but draws more heavily on classic R&B sounds and goes so far as to incorporate 112’s 1997 classic “Cupid” into its melody.
