SHINee’s KEY is coming back with his second full-length album Gasoline later this month. Gasoline is set to be released on August 30 and it’s KEY’s first solo release in nearly a year – the mini-album Bad Love was released on September 27 last year.
According to SM Entertainment, Gasoline contains 11 songs of various genres, showcasing KEY’s musical colours, including the title track ‘Gasoline’. KEY announced the album’s title and release day with a Halloween-esque poster; the overall concept for Gasoline seems to be along the lines of ‘how to be scary and cute’.
