After a four year wait, fans will be excited to know that Yoga Lin is finally back-albeit with an entirely new sound-to wow your eardrums!
The album will become available on pre-order on the 3rd of June, and will be released officially on the 17th of June.
Lin's concept for the album revolves around the trials of life and the mounting pressure for everyone to 'grow up' and start being 'mature', questioning this trend and the meaning of life.
Rather than following the trend, he encourages all to awaken the sleeping creatures within your heart, re-igniting one's passion for chasing their dreams.
A complete revelation of his alternative rock side, his first single "Unshakeable rascal" has the head banging passion of Mayday, combined with an element of Yoga magic to top it all off.
What will he come up with next? We'll find out soon enough!

Eve Ai has always been a musician and artist I have admired greatly. Although I admit I'm not too well-versed in her music, her unique, throaty vocals and brash at times, yet sweet at others songwriting style has always been a point of interest for me.
So this time, with the release of her third album "Talk about Eve", I was determined to get onto the bandwagon before I missed my chance again!
Although in previous albums, Eve had showcased a more abrasive take by criticising current societal trends through her album "Grown Up's Love Songs", she has stated that this time, she's going to be taking a softer approach.
"I don't wish to be at odds with the world anymore, I want to take those closest to me and flee together, towards the lives we want."
Encircling this latest album are the themes of 'love' and 'escape', two ideas which are very relevant to women in modern society.
Eve has said that this will be her most intimate album to date, saying "I envision this to be an album which will allow me to get close to my audience, we can sit together, chat about love, this and that, listen to my observations on life, and share views".
Fans can expect a variety of exciting collaborations within the album with the likes of famed producer Chen Jian Qi, singer songwriters Evan Yo and Eric Chou, as well as lyricist Zhang Jian Jun Wei.
Her first single "Sum of Us" has already caught the attention of many with its beautiful, stripped down arrangement against Eve's mesmerising and intimate vocals which will have your heart caught in your throat in no time.

Her second single "Harmless Loneliness" is impulsive, reckless and emotional. Certainly not just any old love ballad. Check out the cool music video too!

After a long wait, wonder kid Eric Chou is back with two new singles to whet the appetites of his fans!
The first one, "Back to the day" is a ballad written in his signature R & B style. There's just something about his melodies that really hit all the notes for me, filling my heart with such sadness at times. However I do think the bridge of this song is very similar to that of Magic Power's song "I still love you". Also wishing that he could put those catchy melodies to better use by getting a little more out of his comfort zone. Ugh, but it sounds so good still, I'm torn!
Eric Chou-Back to the day
The second single he's released in this period is yet another theme song, this time for drama "Life list". I honestly can't decide which song I like better, his hooks and beautiful falsetto tone have got me totally mesmerised. A very sweet song that truly has a soul of its own. What I really like about Eric is that although his songs technically are very balladic and follow a more conventional style, they come from a place so pure and so authentic that it's still quite very irresistible if I say so myself.
Which of the two of his new singles do you like better? Let us know in the comments below!
It's been a busy couple of months for the spunky A-Lin. Not only has she been busy prepping for her "Sonar" world tour, which will include stopovers even in Australia and New Zealand, she's also found the time to release two singles in the meantime!
The first one is called "Fleeting Happiness", the theme song for Taiwanese Drama "Magical Space Time" starring Ruby Lin. The song was also written for her by none other than wonder kid Eric Chou. I must say, the delicacy and full-bodiedness of the song makes for a great ballad. Chou has certainly outdone himself this time! A-Lin's vocals shine as always, filling every note with her heart-warming voice.
The second single she's released recently is called "The Mist", and is a more serious body of work that was created to accompany movie "The Phantom Of Theatre", which once again stars Ruby Lin and also Tony Yang. Produced and written by Golden Melody Award-winning producer Chen Jian Qi, the song is full of dramatique and chillingly beautiful mystery, flowing like mist. Listen to the track below!
