Younha to release 2nd full-length Japan album next month

Younha [Lion Media]

'Oricon comet' Younha's second Japanese studio album will be out next month, her first full-length release in five years.

The 22-year-old singer's agency Lion media said on Wednesday that "ひとつ空の下 (Hitotsu Soranoshita)", translated into 'under a single sky,' will go on sale in Japan on September 22 and in Korea a week later.

The new album will contain a total of 12 songs including eight new tracks and four existing singles while a limited number of DVDs will contain five music videos.

Of the songs in the upcoming record, "ソラトモ ~空を見上げて (Soratomo Soraomiagete)," meaning 'look up into the sky,' has been picked as a supporting song for Weathernews Inc., the world's largest private weather service company in the world based in Japan.

Younha owes her nickname to her success on Japan's prestigious Oricon chart -- she became the second Korean, after BoA, to break into the top 20 spots of the chart.

Younha has released a total of eight singles in the country as well since her debut at the young age of 16 in 2004.

She has also led a strong singing career in her home country where she debuted two years later, holding numerous hits under her name including "Password 486," "Comet" and "Telepathy."
