睽違四年!蔡旻佑推出新專輯大談人生低潮期 | Singer Evan Yo launches album after four-year break

【看英文中國郵報學英文】蔡旻佑2019年宣告加盟新東家何樂音樂,睽違4年推出專輯《變心記》。作品中首度揭露內心的陰沉面,「畢竟陽光了這麼久,我發現還是要釋放自己情緒,總會有一些低潮難過的時刻」。他談到籌備期間遭逢撞牆期,第一次開會時他拿出DEMO試聽,沒想到看似多元豐富卻被打槍,慘遭「全數退貨」的他更被唱片高層當頭棒喝。

Taiwanese singer Evan Yo announced her new record deal with label Pourquoi Pas Music(何樂音樂) this year, and launched a new album 4 years after his previous work, showing his dark side for the first time ever, “I’ve maintained this cheerful image for too long, I needed to express my true feelings. After all, everyone has bad days.” He talked about obstacles he encountered when preparing for the album. He hit a wall for some time, and his demo was refused by managers at a meeting, which deeply frustrated him.      

會議後他陷入情緒無底洞,直到他做出人生32年來的重大決定,正式搬出家裡展開外宿的獨立生活,更多時間與自己相處,心情漸而豁然開朗,許多靈感也從此浮現。

After the meeting, he made the biggest decision of his life. He moved out of home and started living on his own. By spending more time with himself, he gradually felt more at ease, and new ideas began surfacing.

新專輯尚未發片卻風波不斷,先是境外平台提前「早洩」所有專輯曲目,如今唱片公司決定直球對決,「因為對音樂很有信心,決定讓粉絲先聽為快」,在8日展開預購同時、將自洩全部10首新歌的短版串燒音檔,此外也剪輯「蔡旻佑的創作變形記」造勢影片,短短100秒濃縮著14年來的音樂回顧。

The new album is already facing trouble before its release when all the songs for the album were leaked on music streaming platforms. However, the record label expressed confidence with the situation, stating “It’s not a bad thing to let the fans listen to it beforehand”. When pre-orders start on Aug 8, a short remix tape of the ten songs from the album will also be released. In addition, a 100-second video documenting the recording of this album will also be released, bringing memories from the past 14 years back to the fans.
