Today, on 16 September, Jung's talent agency, Coridel Entertainment revealed that, "Jessica is making a comeback with a new single on 26 September."
"Jessica's new song was produced in collaboration with a surprising artist," the talent agency teased. "Jessica's unique vocal colour will be showcased through a different style of music. Please look forward to it."
This news came as a surprise as both Jung and Coridel Entertainment have been secretive regarding the singer's return to music.
Jung was previously a member of iconic K-pop girl group, Girls' Generation. After leaving SM Entertainment in 2016, Jung pursued a solo career and released her debut solo EP titled With Love, J in March 2016. The EP peaked at the number one spot in the local Gaon Album Charts and number 4 on the Billboard World Albums chart.
Since then, the singer has been relatively inactive in the music scene, as she went on to pursue other ventures such as spearheading her fashion label, Blanc & Eclare, as well as acting in various shows.
Jung's last single was a Christmas-themed one, released in December 2018. Fans will be excited to hear new material from the singer and her new EP is likely to be a highly-anticipated release this fall.
