Highlight’s Son Dongwoon has dropped Act 1: the Orchestra, his sophomore EP.

The diverse project consists of eight tracks, ranging from the jazzy, lounge tune “Decrescendo” to the disco-influenced “Intermission.” An MV for opening track “In the Silence” was released alongside the EP. In the video, Son performs the song on a bare soundstage, surrounded by an ensemble of violinists and cellists.

“Some of the stories and music, which took at most three years, or even longer than that, are finally seeing the light of day,” Son tweeted before the EP’s release, according to Soompi. “I will continuously work hard to remain a singer you can be proud of. Please listen to it, and please treat me well.”
