K-pop boy band SHINee’s Jonghyun has lent his songwriting talent to songstress IU.

IU revealed a track list for 13 tunes to be listed in her upcoming third album “Modern Times,” which includes Jonghyun’s self-written tune “Gloomy Clock” (translated title), her promoter Fortune Entertainment said in a press release Monday.

The lead vocalist of SHINee will also feature his own voice in the song, while other K-pop artists including Gain of Brown Eyed Girls and veteran vocalist Yang Heeun will join other tunes of IU, all of which are set to be unveiled on October 7.

Along with the track list, IU revealed a teaser clip of one of her new tunes “Between the Lips,” the first teaser to be followed by a total of six videos featuring different songs until next Friday.

The songstress, who exuded ladylike charm in the aforementioned clip, will list two of her own compositions in “Modern Times” in which she participated in writing lyrics for two tunes.
