SHINee's KEY will make his first solo comeback in 2½ years in September, SM Entertainment has confirmed.
KEY's first album repackage, I Wanna Be, was released in March 2019, to coincide with his military enlistment. Upon being discharged on October 7, 2020, he returned as a regular cast member on tvN variety show Amazing Saturday that November. He reunited with his SHINee members in February for Don't Call Me, their wildly successful seventh album.
A pre-release single featuring Girls' Generation's TAEYEON, "Hate that...," will debut on August 30, with an EP to follow. Additional details have yet to be revealed.
