Taeyeon Comes Back with “Something New”
Taeyeon has finally come back with a new solo album after six months. The genre of the song is different from her past albums, so she tried something new for this comeback. Taeyeon has come back strong and reminds everyone that she is indeed one of the vocal queens with her third mini-album.
Her title song “Something New” is about finding yourself and being who you want to be without a care in the world. The title says it all as we should find something new within ourselves and embrace it. My favorite line in the song is: “Feel you the way, the way you are/ I like everything just the way it is/ Deep place in your heart when you knock, it will open up a new world.” These lyrics tell you the whole meaning of the song which is to be yourself and to look deep into your heart to find your true self. The song starts off with a soft, slow melody then goes right into the first verse with a neo soul urban pop style. Once the chorus starts, the song becomes more exciting. “Something New” has many surprises as you continue to listen. From the different beats and styles, this song will never get boring.
The album continues with a song featuring Lucas of NCT. “저녁의 이유 (All Night Long)” is about starting to fall in love with someone and taking the relationship slowly. It’s a song about first loves and has a catchy beat that is easy to follow after listening to the first minute. It gives off a lovely vibe that makes you think of your first crush or first love. “바람 바람 바람 (Baram X 3)” has a more pop style that keeps listeners dancing. This song is about being in a relationship where you are uneasy about it, just like the wind.
The next two songs are ballads that show off Taeyeon’s amazing vocals. “너의 생일 (One Day)” is about being in love with someone but you can’t be with them yet. Just like Taeyeon says, “One Day” we will be able to fall in love with that special someone. “Circus” is one of my favorites because of its soft melody and meaningful lyrics. This song is about giving your heart to someone and taking in the moment you have with them. The chorus has such a catchy beat that gets you feeling the happy moments in your life. The mini-album wraps up with the instrumental of “Something New.”
Taeyeon’s comeback gives off many meaningful messages all coming together to bring listeners the most important message, which is to be yourself and don’t change for others!
