Girl group Lovelyz is set to release the instrumental album “Muse on Music” on Monday, becoming the first female group in K-pop to do so.

The triple album comes with each disc representing a different time of day including dawn, day and night, as the total of 33 tracks from their previous eight records are carefully curated to create three different atmospheres.

The “Dawn” disc includes tracks “Destiny” and “Joyland,” while the “Day” disc has more upbeat pop tunes including their hit single “Candy Jelly Love” from the group’s debut album “Girls’ Invasion.”

The “Night” disc consists of slow numbers like “Circle” and “Night and Day,” fit for nighttime listening.

Though K-pop acts sometimes include backing tracks for their lead singles as a bonus for fans, rarely are albums containing only instrumental tracks released.

In 2014, boy band Infinite released an instrumental compilation album “The Origin,” but “Muse on Music” by Lovelyz marks the first time a K-pop girl group will release a full instrumental album.
