Yaeji has announced her debut studio album, With a Hammer. It’s due for release this April. The Korean-American artist revealed the news in a letter to fans that also contained the album’s cover artwork, which was photographed by Dasom Han. Take a look below.
“I want to begin this album with intent,” Yaeji wrote. “I want to take all that I’ve suppressed and let it breathe and live through this process of creation. I want my music to be free. So I started writing a story about me and my hammer. A hammer crafted from my anger.”
Yaeji released her first full-length mixtape, What We Drew 우리가 그려왔던, in 2020, following her EPs Yaeji and EP2. The following year, she collaborated with Oh Hyuk for the tracks ‘Year to Year’ and ’29’ and teamed up with Namco and DiAN for ‘PAC-TIVE’.
