IU (아이유) 6th Mini Album ‘Pieces’ [Full Tracklist]

“The pieces in between my twenties that were never seen before.”
“They’re the pieces that were never publicly revealed before while I promoted musically. They are the pieces in between those promotions that I never revealed before, that I collected together. That’s why it’s called ‘Pieces.’ These songs are individually precious to me, and I have fond memories of them. They are precious songs to me but they weren’t a complete image. Rather, I think it’s closer than they are pieces of an image. So these five songs would gather and create one image. Through this album ‘Pieces,’ I think I would be able to express the message I want to deliver.” — IU

IU (아이유) – 러브레터 (Love Letter) Lyrics

“I sketched (this song) at 26, completed at 28, and gave it to another artist I like, Jung Seung Hwan. I worked with him after appeared on KBS Sketchbook and sang this song last year. It was the first time that another artist had sung my song since I started composing. If Jung Seung-hwan’s version was calm and sophisticated, I wanted to release my version of Love Letter in a more standard way. The arrangement is fairy tale-like and cute, but the song itself was recorded relatively easily. In addition, I tried to act slightly differently for each part of the lyrics for “dao,” which is repeated the most. In the last paragraph, the lyrics “어디보다 그대 안에 나 머물러 있다오” are the sentences that served as the seed of the epilogue, the last track of my 5th full-length album LILAC. It’s also something I want to say to my fans who I’m grateful with, who have known me for a long time, know me, and who wanted to know me more.” — IU ❤

IU (아이유) – 정거장 (Next Stop) Lyrics

“I started writing (this song) when I was 25, completed when I was 26. There are songs that come to mind at the same time as the lyrics and melody, as if they were originally born together, and this song was like that for me after a long time. Such songs are inevitably favored. There is no elaborate composition or characteristic codework, but as soon as I wrote the first verse, I loved this song so much. But then I forgot. Hehe”

IU (아이유) – 드라마 (Drama) Lyrics

“I wrote this song when I was 20. I made it because I wanted to make my friend, who had been very pessimistic about love for a few days after breaking up, laugh for a while. Although it was not released, I have a great affection for this song as I sang it every year during the concert encore. I often tried to write songs with similar emotions, but I quit because I thought I was only imitating a chapter that had already passed by me.
I sincerely thank my fans for not forgetting the existence of the song “Drama” and firmly requesting an official release for 10 years.” — IU ❤
