아이유가 1년 반 만에 꺼내 놓은 신보이자 정규앨범으로는 3년 여만인 정규 4집 앨범 [Palette]는, 미리 발표된 두 선공개곡을 통해 짐작할 수 있듯이 특정 장르나 스타일에 제한하지 않고 다채로운 음악색과 이야기를 한데 담아낸, 앨범명 의미 그대로의 ‘팔레트’와 같은 앨범이다.

아이유의 정규4집 [Palette]는 아이유 본인이 직접 프로듀싱을 맡아 긴 호흡으로 공들여 작업한 만큼 가수 아이유의 또 다른 변신과 프로듀서 아이유의 음악적 성장을 새롭게 발견할 수 있게 한다. 또한, 그는 이번 앨범에서 이병우, 손성제, G-DRAGON, 선우정아, 오혁, 샘 김 등 세대와 장르를 아우르는 최고의 뮤지션들과 만나 음악적 스펙트럼을 넓히는 동시에, 특유의 섬세한 음색과 노랫말로 모든 넘버를 ‘아이유’ 만의 감성으로 색칠하며, 도무지 그 음악적 한계와 컬러를 단정지을 수 없게 한다.

May 9, 2017

A frank reflection of growth
At the age of 15, IU began her music career as an all-round singer with "Lost Child." However, her music style remained vague until she found her quirky fantasy vibe in the 2010 album Real. Despite her wide variety of music styles, she managed to retain the fairytale concept in her subsequent albums to show her inner child. Reaching adulthood, the singer-songwriter takes on a down-to-earth style to find her true self in her fourth full-length album Palette.

It's hard to tell what "Dlwlrma" (Track 1) means through its apparently nonsensical title. However, when you type out the letters on a Korean keyboard, you will discover that the playful jazzy song is named after IU's nickname "Lee Ji Geum." With the word "geum" meaning "gold," "Lee Ji Geum" is an amusing wordplay on the singer's real name "Lee Ji Eun," where "eun" means silver. Capturing the singer's whimsical and positive spirit, this funny title is also a pun on the words "this moment." Singing in an adorable tone, the singer tells people to enjoy the moment.

When compared to her previous plugs, the autobiographical Palette (Track 2) may seem like her least compelling title song due to its unadorned composition and straightforward lyrics. Yet, the simplistic R&B style allows IU to tell her changes at an unhurried pace and display her newfound self-assertion. The confused and anxious girl in "Twenty Three" has become a confident and carefree young woman living in her own way. G-Dragon shares his experience as a 30-year-old man and encourages the singer to bravely face the unknown future.

A peaceful breakup needs wits. Rather than pointing the finger at each other, it's easier to end a relationship with excuses like "You deserve someone better" or "I'm not good enough." Featuring an expressive piano and string accompaniment, "Ending Scene" (Track 3) beautifully depicts the protagonist's grief and disappointment to her former lover, who refuses to tell her the truth behind the breakup. The relaxed offbeat R&B duet "Can't Love You Anymore" (Track 4), on the contrary, talks about the issue in an indifferent and nonchalant manner through the story of a long-time couple on the verge of breaking up. The random, apathetic conversation between IU and Oh Hyuk vividly illustrates that the opposite of love is not necessarily hate but indifference. Revolving around the theme of separation, the album continues its sorrowful tone in "Through the Night" (Track 8). The comforting acoustic guitar melody and IU's sweet vocals express the yearning for a bygone love in the quiet folk ballad. The song's music video also captures a deep nostalgia through scenes of IU singing with an old-fashioned voice recorder and writing a love letter in a traditional house.

Bouncing from electronica and R&B to jazz and acoustic folk, Palette is a frank reflection of IU's mature attitudes towards life and love. Eschewing her fantasy world, IU seeks comfort on her coming-of-age journey while revealing the sad truth of becoming an adult in this music diary.
