JACKSON WANG : an artistic renewal with his new album MAGIC MAN

JACKSON WANG‘s new album “MAGIC MAN” is out!

This Friday, TEAM WANG records revealed “MAGIC MAN“, JACKSON‘s long awaited album.

Among its 10 songs, JACKSON chose to put “Blue” in the spotlight to support the release of his new opus, a song which certainly illustrates his venture into rock music. All along the song, JACKSON‘s husky voice stands out and overhangs the  melody, accompanied by a shy guitar line going crescendo until the chorus, when percussions join the instrumental. Other songs of the albums are “Blow“, “Cruel“, “Champagne cool“, “Go ghost“, “Drive it like you stole it“, “Come alive“, “Just like magic“, “All the way” and “Dopamine“.

Although the album is being released only now, this is not the first time the audience gets to listen to it.

Indeed, “Blow” and “Cruel” came out with an MV each earlier this year. He also got to perform some songs from “MAGIC MAN” on the occasion of several concerts and festivals including Coachella, the Red World Opening in Bangkok and the first part of the K-Pop Masterz in Bangkok and Manila.

Setting aside his mixtape “LOST & FOUND” released earlier this year, “MAGIC MAN” is JACKSON‘s second album, and his first album since his departure from JYP Entertainment in 2021. This album marks an important stage of his career: while his musical journey started with trap, hip-hop and rap sounding genres, it seems that he found an equilibrium between his artistic vision and the music that suits him, despite of his adamant refusal to confine into a box and limit his creativity. Performance oriented, this album lets him identify with rock music and express his inventiveness through music videos just as unique as awe-inspiring each.
