On June 29, 2015 Ailee dropped the audio of her new single “Johnny” on YouTube and Soundcloud. The single is a special project to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of rapper and producer “Brave Brothers.” The single is scheduled for a July 3, 2015 official release, just before her solo concert on July 4th. Ailee who has been going on live broadcasts to promote the single and her upcoming concert, has also announced via her label YMC, she’ll be releasing a full length album this Fall.

Consistent as a metronome, Ailee delivers a gentler version of her usual high-pitched light-up-the-skys vocals. Joining in are some very raw live-instruments, which are a good match. The Jazzy double-bass is ever present; add in the tenor saxophone and Ailee’s taking us into a seedy speakeasy Jazz nightclub, singing about her lover, Johnny.
 

 
Ailee teased the choreography of the single on her Instagram, yesterday.
 


 
In her career thus far, 3 years in, Ailee has released 3 mini-albums and several singles. In addition to her solo concert, a full length album are the natural next steps.

YMC Entertainment is reported to have told Sports X “Ailee is creating her full-length album now for an intended October comeback. She is currently gathering songs.” And added, “As this is Ailee’s first full-length album, she will try towards a change in music and show an even better side of herself.”

Ailee’s has certainly been switching things up. As is visible in the promo-picture of her upcoming concert in Seoul, ‘Fatal Attraction’, where she sports a short-cropped hairdo. Ailee Hwaiting!

Here are the lyrics to “Johnny

Oh baby Johnny
Why don’t you know my heart
I’m the only one hurting
Oh baby Johnny
I love you so much
But I don’t know
Why did you leave me?

I’m alone on a dark street
Drawing you out, getting drunk
I start calling people
Asking why this happened as I regret every day

(I love you thank you)
And I’m sorry
(I need you baby)
I want you
(I love you thank you)
Please come back
I can’t forget you, I can’t
Don’t escape from me

Oh baby Johnny
Why don’t you know my heart
I’m the only one hurting
Oh baby Johnny
I love you so much
But I don’t know
Why did you leave me?

Oh baby Johnny
I’m so lonely tonight
Oh baby Johnny
I’m so scared tonight

I thought a lot (all night)
Why did we become like this (I don’t know)
I loved you so much (until always)
We shouldn’t have broken up

(I love you thank you)
And I’m sorry
(I need you baby)
I want you
(I love you thank you)
Please come back
I can’t forget you, I can’t
Don’t escape from me

Oh baby Johnny
Why don’t you know my heart
I’m the only one hurting
Oh baby Johnny
I love you so much
But I don’t know
Why did you leave me?

Oh baby Johnny
I’m so lonely tonight
Oh baby Johnny
I’m so scared tonight

On this deep night
Only tears fall
This deep love
Because of you, I can’t live through the days
