[News] Track list for CNBLUE’s Last Indie Album “392″ is Revealed!
FnC Music, CNBLUE’s label, revealed earlier this week that the band will be releasing another full-length album in Japan on September 1st. It will be the band’s last indie album before they go on to a major label. “392” includes 8 songs from their previous singles, as well as 3 new songs. The album title, “392”, is partly to be read in Japanese as “san-kyu-two” or “Thank U two”, as a direct follow-up to their first full-length title “Thank.U”.
CNBLUE debuted in Japan even before they came to Korea with “I’m a Loner”. Their first mini album “now or Never” was quickly followed up by “Voice” before the group took a shot at the Korean music scene.
This last indie album doesn’t mean the group won’t be releasing music in Japan anymore. The Japanese label system makes it so that bands that have just started are more likely to be picked up by a smaller, indie label than a big one that can invest a lot of money in their artists. In this way, major labels (such as Sony, Avex and others) can easily check out what’s newly released on indie labels, and see whether or not there is a band they’re willing to invest in. In this way, rock bands can ‘graduate’ indie labels, and move on to another bigger, major label in which they can let their career grow even more.
The album consists of 11 tracks, including various songs that were on their Japanese singles “The Way”, “I Don’t Know Why” and “Re-Maintenance”.
1. The Way part2 ～Ready N Go～
2. The Way part1 ～one time～
3. Man in front of the Mirror
4. Try Again,Smile Again
6. The Way part3 ～eclipse～
8. Don’t say good bye
9. I don’t know why
