FT ISLAND is Back with Their 9th Mini Album "Sage"


FT Island's ninth mini album "Sage" has been released!

“Don’t stop, I want to be born anew”

The band FT Island is back with a new album "Sage" after 1 year and 9 months.

FTISLAND's ninth mini-album "Sage" contains the message to go to a wider world and walk your own path wisely. Members  Lee Hongki and Lee Jaejin participated in writing the lyrics for the title song, ‘Sage,’ a rock genre song with an impressive drum and guitar sound and an addictive melody. As it has been so far, it depicts the courage to silently walk its own path in the future, and gives support to those living in the same era.

In addition to the title song, 'All Of My Life' stands out with a lyrical melody, 'I'm Still Here' with a subtle loneliness, 'Broken' is a rock genre with an intense guitar riff, strings, and synth sound, and a pop rock song ' Not Enough' and 'Rising Star (With G.O.P)', a reinterpretation with powerful energy of a song presented to the group 'G.O.P' produced by the band audition program 'THE IDOL BAND: BOY'S BATTLE'. In particular, the members of FT Island draw attention by participating in the production of all songs.

Like a bird breaking an egg and flying out of the world, FT Island sings to the world again.  You will find new and free FTISLAND.
