South Korean singer IU unveiled an emotive album cover for her upcoming album, titled, “A Flower Bookmark Two” on her Facebook page on Friday. The vintage-style cover resembles the albums predecessor, “A Flower Bookmark,” released in 2014.

IU wears a naval officer’s hat and white sweater in the cover image, and the design is reminiscent of the LP record covers of yesteryear.

The new album has sentimental songs in tune with the autumn season, according to her agency Leon Entertainment. “We selected songs that transcends generations and reinterpreted them through IU’s original musical color. The album will be popular across generations and stir a deep commotion,” it said.

The new album will be released on Sept. 22, 6 p.m. local time. IU will sing the songs from it during a meeting with her fans on Sept. 24, marking the 9th anniversary of her debut.
