Singer IU will be featuring on the final album of indie band Sisters Barbershop.
According to multiple music sources, IU will be participating as a featured artist on one of their b-side tracks, as the album is set to release on June 1. Famous music critic Kim Jae Ga praised IU through his social media, saying, IU shows more of her skill through this song than through any other song that she has previously featured in.
IU has consistently collaborated with a variety of artists such as G-Dragon, Kim Chang Wan, and Hyukoh, proving herself as a versatile artist.
She shared her thoughts on collaborating with the indie group through an Instagram post, with a caption that said, I was able to participate in a follow up track for the last album of Sisters Barbershop, a group that I have liked since I was a kid. Its been a little over a year since I received my first email from senior Lee Seok Won. As I watched them put the album together little by little from afar, I learned so much as a fan and as a junior musician. It is an honor that I was able to participate in your last album. I will not forget the respect and care youve shown me.
