The king of Mandopop is back!
Jay Chou’s (周杰倫) 14th full-length album, titled “Jay Chou’s Bedtime Stories” (周杰倫的床邊故事), will finally be released on 24th June and the Taiwanese singer posted up the music video (2-minute version) for the title track of the same name on his Facebook page last night.
It’s safe to say that the concept behind the 37-year-old pop star’s upcoming album was inspired by his 4-month-old baby girl, Hathaway Chou. The latest project is described as “storytelling through music” and the long-awaited album will be packaged as a fairytale story book. Some versions of the album will also include a cute owl-shaped USB.
Although the album track list has yet to be released, “Jay Chou’s Bedtime Stories” consists of 10 tracks including “Past Life Lover” (前世情人), a song dedicated to his daughter, and “Now You See Me”, which he wrote for his upcoming Hollywood blockbuster, “Now You See Me 2”.

The album will be distributed by Sony Music and it is available for pre-order starting today (Wednesday, 8th June). The pre-ordered albums also come with an exclusive ear plug or eye mask.
