SHINee 6th Album “The Story of Light” Purchase Guide

SHINee 6th Album “The Story of Light” Purchase Guide

 

SHINee’s 6th Album “The Story of Light” …

… comes a year and a half after their 5th studio album “1 of 1“ and coincides with SHINee’s 10th Anniversary (since their debut)! This 6th album will be released as 3 EPs with 3 title tracks “Good Evening”, “I Want You”, & “Our Page”. Each EP will have 5 songs each and SHINee will be doing “relay” promotions (back to back promoting). The members will start by holding a SHINee Day anniversary fanmeeting on 5/27 where they will perform their first title track for this album series, “Good Evening”. The first teasers for “The Story of Light” & “Good Evening” were released on May 15th, 2018 via SHINee’s Instagram, Twitter, & Facebook featuring a red fox in a room of primary colors (red, yellow, & blue). A few days later, SM opened an additional teaser website for the 6th album shinee6.smtown.com. On this website they presented a color wheel where fans could connect their favorite songs to a specific color and create your own colorful playlist. Throughout the week, the members also picked their own color/song combinations of SHINee’s 10 year history together (“SHINee’s Pick”) and SM gave a quiz to match you with a song (“Today’s Pick”). ^^ “SHINee’s first part of the 6th full-length album, ‘The Story of Light’ EP1. – No.1 on iTunes Albums charts in 30 countries – No.1 on Korea’s Daily Albums charts, including Synnara Record, HOTTRACKS, and Kyobo Book Centre~!” (SHINee Facebook) Be sure to follow @SHINee on Twitter, Instagram, & Facebook for the latest updates~!

MUSIC CHART NOTES:

An Excerpt from our Music Chart Guide: “Korea has multiple digital streaming & purchasing services and each have a realtime chart of their own! Here is a list of the current Digital Services (each have their own chart): Bugs, Genie, Soribada, Olleh Music, Melon, Naver Music, Mnet music, & Monkey3.  A great site that compiles all of these in realtime is Instiz iChart (updates every hour on Twitter). But the digital chart that gets recognized for year end awards is Gaon’s Digital Chart (WeeklyMonthly, & Yearly Charts). Gaon also breaks down their combined Digital Chart into Streaming & Download Charts. A prestigious thing for an artist is for a new album/ new song to debut with an “All Kill” – when an artist’s new song/album reaches #1 on ALL Korean digital charts during the first hour/day of release. The best ways for US fans to participate in these charts are: using free Genie passes (100 free stream passes are in physical albums). Streaming through these services WILL contribute to SHINee’s wins on music shows!”
