"Dopamine" is set to be released on various music platforms on June 13, 2024, which will be Junny's first album in around 2 years! His first album "blanc" was released in 2022 and became a hit with his native Korean audience.


With the new release on the horizon, the upcoming album is said to explore various forms of dopamine, a neurotransmitter in the human brain that has been a recent topic of interest, offering Junny's unique interpretation throughout the album's storyline. Sounds interesting right? I think so.


Let's take a look at one of Junny's hits from his first album!



For me this video is awesome. I really love the simple shots and the club scene vibe with the different shades of lighting used. It makes it more memorable than flashy dance moves, with Junny having kept the focus on his vocal talent throughout.


Ahead of the album release various content and teasers have been posted on social media from June 4th until the actual release (June 13th) to get his listeners excited. Junny is well known for his sensory visuals and narration. I think that such vivid visuals help him stand out in the current marketplace and perhaps leaves listeners with a sense of curiosity about the singer.


Let's take a look at his new teaser!




Having watched the teaser several times, I feel that he has tried to be playful at the start of the video, with the American diner setting and the heart statue on the table, which almost resembles the classic American milkshake that you would expect to see in this setting.


Lyrically, I think he sounds on point as well, which makes me excited for his new music after such a long time away. I feel that the close up sense of him throughout the day shows perhaps the different emotions that the singer has been experiencing. What do you think?


Of course, no album is complete without at least one artist collaboration. In his absence from the stage, Junny has been actively collaborating with artists such as Levent Geiger, a German-born artist. I am excited to listen to this track once it's released!


Release date - June 16th, 2024 (Worldwide release)
