This week saw the anniversary of the first Lockdown in the UK and one of the things it has taught us is to find new ways to pass the time at home; from video games, television or even UKP’s own Self-Isolation Grab Bag.  It is safe to say that for some, these things have been a comfort to many as fans enjoy comebacks or viewers are touched by a drama’s story & soundtrack. As always, we have compiled them all into the Release Round Up so you don’t miss a single song as the hours roll forward into summer.

Here are some of the UKP Team’s favourites of the last seven days and a brief look into next week’s big releases.

This Week’s Top Picks

With her latest album stealing chart debuts in the UK, America and more; it is safe to say that IU’s comeback was the big hit of the week. LILAC is a labour of love from the solo artist with her credits in writing lyrics, multiple collaborations and a generous donation to charity to commemorate the album’s release.

CLC’s Sorn made her debut this week as the first member to release an official solo single outside of soundtracks and variety shows. Written in English, Run is a pop-infused feed good track about running free and finding a sense of happiness, making it perfect for the start of summer.

Next Week’s Ones to Watch

Although his contract is coming to a close, Kim Sung Kyu has one single which is set for release on March 29th. Hush will be the last solo release from the INFINITE leader as he departs from Woollim Entertainment and will also feature label-mate, Eunbi from IZ*ONE in the music video as his former love.
