Following the 2014 "呸" "PLAY" set off the global topic and create a classic model of Chinese pop music, Asian pop queen Jolin Jolin Tsai broke the music scene. The four-year new album "UGLY BEAUTY" finally debuted in December! The last album explores various superficial phenomena in the society from his own point of view. This time, the new works return to the inner level. From the process of self-answering self-answer and self-exploration, Jolin finds that he is facing up and embracing his dark and ugly face. The feedback is beautiful! Jolin explores the "feeling" and "view" of human beings through the "emotion" and "desire" of the theme "UGLY BEAUTY", breaking the secular dichotomy between beauty and ugliness and redefining it!
In the past two years, Jolin, who is interested in psychology, began to dig into the inner world and explore himself through the book of psychologist Jung. Jolin said: "I used to do a hundred percent, I will blame myself, I think I It is a person who is not worth mentioning." And this groping process unexpectedly found that Jolin, who always wanted to test a hundred percent and proved himself "I can", always ignored the inner negative power and forgot how to love himself; Through this excavation process, I think that the theme of "UGLY BEAUTY" is a new album. Jolin said: "The face of UGLY for me is a part of emotion. When you start to face it, the feedback is Very beautiful, more love and empathy, you will know very well about your own decision to do this, it is not easy to criticize yourself and criticize others!" The birth of the new album Jolin through continuous discussion, Knowing myself, the album production process has undergone many times of "removing and rehearsing". The new album has a complete record and presents Jolin’s journey of "knowing oneself", "sense" and "view". Jolin singing career is the most "honest" album!
Why is the album named "UGLY BEAUTY"? The so-called UGLY BEAUTY actually refers not only to the beauty and ugliness of appearance, but also to the two poles of inner psychological level: good and evil / good and bad / crying and laughing / happy and sad / dark and bright / fragile and strong / Correct and incorrect.., and the so-called evil, refers to the emotional traits that are often our own dislike: jealousy, anger, inferiority, fragility, dissatisfaction, etc., because they know that they do not meet the ideal aesthetic So I don’t look at it in the dark room, but because I have deliberately ignored them for a long time, they will always commit crimes in a variety of different ways, so they have self-harm, inexplicable frustration, negative, aggressive, angry Conceited, conceited, bullied, and so on, what Jolin wants to say is: Only open the atrium, to know the inner dark side, to identify them, when they are transformed into a variety of different appearances in daily life. Only then can you identify their prototypes and slowly become able to not be swallowed up by these negative forces and learn to get along with them and understand their appearance and necessity. And the empathy is to understand these so-called evil styles. The next time you see them in others, you can understand and treat each other, maybe it is less vulnerable!
The most created Jolin! The new self-organized music writing camp participated in the new creation. The
four-year production period spanned from Europe and Asia. From Taipei to Bangkok, the expedition to Stockholm,
Jolin broke the way of album production in the past. With a new creative mode, he participated in the music writing camp and personally participated in the music collective. The way of creation, complete the song of the new album "UGLY BEAUTY". Jolin personally "bubble" the studio to participate in the creative brainstorming, in addition to flying in Taipei to Bangkok, and even expedition to Stockholm, through the music of the city's music writing camp, respectively, mobilized nearly 100 transnational musicians to experience and Musicians from different regions are locked in the studio for a week, and the interesting process of brainstorming not only stimulates Jolin's self-potency, but also makes Jolin's creative power break out. The new album has participated in the creation of six songs in one breath. The new album "UGLY BEAUTY" will not only hear Jolin's first attempted creation mode, but will also hear an album of "Creativity" and "Most Jolin's Creative Power" as if it were a grand slam! Jolin said: "In the process of free creation, I explored the voice that I moved, and cooperated with different creative camps, giving me a lot of propulsion, doing music discussions together, using different language to express what you want. In addition to being very enjoyable and fun, the work should make everyone feel as much as I am!"
The new album brings together innovative works from all over the world and the diverse content of the theme "UGLY BEAUTY". The composition and style of the new album "Experimental" is different. In the past, Jolin’s instincts of "loyalty to music" are bound to bring Chinese pop music has more impact and new sense of hearing! Jolin, who is brave enough to accept the challenge, said: "I just want to try!" Jolin likes to ask questions and self-answer during the album production process. She is also very curious and aware of women's strength and influence. The original new album wants to explore "what is a woman" and finds herself in the process of investing. It is the best "experimental object", and then I began to explore the inner world to explore and discover that "emotion" is the key point affecting myself and others. Therefore, I often ask myself "what kind of woman I am"; Jolin Said: "I always feel that I have lost a little bit of a role in women. Although everyone looks like a princess, I always think that my heart is a man! This kind of conflict is like a whirlpool, so I can't help but want to study. "

She looked at the makeup remover through the mirror. I have tears in my heart, and later I realized that she never cares for herself. In the past, she was too concerned about what others said. She did so many things just to get approval from others, but now she is looking at the mirror every time. I can find myself more in my eyes, and remind myself not to live in someone else's mouth. The mouth represents a lot of words and also means a lot of words that can't be said, but now Jolin wants to communicate through eyes and tells everyone, "I can understand. Our mood!” This sultry “Spoken of Truth” is a work created by Chinese rookie designer Shutting Qiu who graduated from the Royal Academy of Art in Antwerp.

The song designer Yan Bojun, after listening to the whole album UGLY BEAUTY's concept of planning, discussed the packaging concept of [Pandora's Box] with the plan, because this album Jolin wants to explore the bright and dark side of human nature, one of which is planning In the direction of "Pandora's Box", this Greek myth is the birth of the first woman in the human world, very close to the negativism that Jolin's new album wants to explore. Pandora opened the box because of curiosity but released it. Negative effects such as sin and disaster, this is also the first origin of the discussion of human original sinology, but the moral of this story is to tell people the importance of embracing hope because the only thing left in the box is "hope". This is also very similar to the good and evil discussed in Jolin's new album "UGLY BEAUTY". No matter how many disasters and tests, darkness, and pain, but there are hope and light in the end! The official version of the inner page design is like the concept of opening a carton, opening one layer at a time, from dark to bright, seeing Jolin in different faces, just like every woman has a black queen and a white queen in her heart. They fight each other's hearts, but they may also be two sides, indispensable!
