A-Mei’s latest album, Faces of Paranoia <偏執面> was initially scheduled to be launched on 4 July 2014.
However, on 30 June 2014, the 11 tracks from A-Mei’s new album were all uploaded on a Chinese site and could be downloaded for free. Although in the evening, most of the songs were removed from the site, A-Mei’s agency decided to release the new album today, two days ahead of the scheduled date.
This afternoon, A-Mei’s official Facebook also released a statement, urging her fans to support the original music.
“We do not hope that people listen to the new songs which are leaked on the website, as they could be of bad audio quality. It’s even heartbreaking to see that A-Mei’s painstaking works are leaked like that, so we have decided to launch the new album tomorrow (2 July). Please support the original music as this is a form of support to A-Mei as well.”
A-Mei’s manager said that the agency would take legal action against the illegal leak of the album.
In related news, A-Mei has recently announced that she would join EMI Records, and will take the role of the brand director in the company. She reportedly also poached Show Luo and Rainie Yang to her new recording label.
EMI Records also held a press conference two days ago to announce signing of the three stars.
