After last year’s sessions of Magic Behind the Music under songwriters.sg, we have been quietly putting together a Singapore-Korea collaboration album, 단짠 데이트 DanZZan Date, consisting of eight indie singer-songwriters from both countries. 단짠 데이트 DanZZan Date means Sweet and Salty Date in Korean. Each of the 8 singer-songwriters wrote a song on the theme of food and love, expressed in their own unique interpretaion and style. We are delighted to update you that the album is almost ready to launch!
단짠 데이트 DanZZan Date is an initiative by SOOS OIO in Singapore with Leeway Music & Media Inc in Korea. The objective of the album is to bring indie artistes of Singapore and Korea together for an exchange and to help them increase their reach in both country through collective promotion. As a sophomore album of this collaboration, listeners can expect a light pop listening experience through the unique indie style and personalities of the eight artistes.
After a few months of selection in Singapore and Korea, we have our eight artistes – three from Singapore and five from Korea. Each of the artiste has a unique music style and personality. We love the process of different artistes coming together in a project like this. Do check out the artistes featured in this album. Follow their social media and keep a look out for the release of their songs in 단짠 데이트 DanZZan Date.
