SHINee talks about Don't Call Me

SHINEE's new album Don't Call Me is releasing after three-year hiatus. The members were sent for their mandatory military service which is now complete. Talking to the publication, Taemin said that he doesn't consider the years that have passed as an issue given that they are all close friends. He said that once they started recording and practising, that is when the issues came up because the older members were having a hard time dealing with new technology.

Minho talked about the songs in the album and how the album has no overall theme to it. He said that some songs are typical SHINee songs and other songs are something they have never tried before. He further added that the songs will fit "today's genres and musical mood".

Talking about the release of their song, Taemin said that during the talk about the album's concept, they agreed that they will make a comeback and show their strong performance to the fans which will have an impact.
