While SM continues to mess with my daily plans and not release TaeTiSeo’s “Holler” music video as of the writing (which means that I won’t likely get to it till Thursday), Ailee has announced that she’ll soon be dropping her third mini-album, entitled “Magazine.”
The release date is set for September 25th:
Her agency YMC Entertainment tweeted on the 16th, “[Ailee] September 25! Ailee’s 3rd mini album ‘Magazine‘ will be released!! We have slightly unveiled her new album images for those who are curious! Please look forward to Ailee’s new album~^^”
YMC Entertainment also tweeted out some concept photos which, well, are horrifying.
[에일리] 9월 25일! 에일리의 3번째 미니앨범 <Magazine>을 발표합니다!! 궁금해하실 여러분을 위해 새 앨범 이미지를 지금! 살~짝 공개합니다! 에일리의 새 앨범 기대 많이 해주세요~^^ pic.twitter.com/xbbeD2PRa8

The concept is kinda shrewd given Ailee’s reputation for being a vocal powerhouse and to juxtapose that with the image of Ailee as a mime is sure to grab interest. It’s just… mimes are the worst. They are like clowns but far, far scarier as they just stare at you with overly expressive eyes and a blank smile while they encase themselves in an imaginary box that only they can see. If the performers of the world came together and built a community, the mime would be that really quiet neighbor who everyone suspects is a serial killer.
However, if the price of a new Ailee album is some reoccurring nightmares, then that is a price that I will gladly pay.
