Finally, WENDY’s 1st Album, ”Don’t waste my YOUTH” is out on today！
All WENDY’s members are teenagers, but their “YOUTH” time was stolen by COVID-19. They couldn’t perform as well as they wanted, so they’ve been feeling frustrated. But, even in such a life, they experienced that the most important thing is not to waste a moment of “youth” and to enjoy it.” A total of 10 songs with all one’s heart is recorded that expressed that feeling as a song in this album.
This Album, the sound producer is Marc Whitmore, who won the 2022 Grammy Award for Best Album for John Badiste’s “We Are”. This work was completed after a miracle meeting between the producer and Wendy, who are paying attention to overseas music scenes.
And, the first track on this album”SCREAM” Music Video is released on today.
This music video, which consists of videos live performance that expresses the momentum of a song as it is, and running through the streets of Shibuya.
It’s a work that gives you a glimpse of the coolness and playfulness of WENDY, so please check it out.
