South Korean singer Key has released his debut studio album.

The 27-year-old K-pop star, a member of the boy band SHINee, released the album Face and a music video for "One of Those Nights" featuring Crush.

SHINee promoted the video on its official Twitter account Monday.

"KEY '(One of Those Nights) (Feat. Crush)' MV," the group wrote. "#KEY #SHINee #FACE #OneofThoseNights."

Key said at a showcase Monday in Seoul that he is determined to excel in both music and acting, according to The Korea Herald.

"I haven't seen many artists who can juggle doing entertainment programs, drama series, films and making a record at the same time, and I wanted to show that it's possible," he said.

The K-pop star said he hopes to reach a new audience with Face, which reflects his changed priorities about music.

"In the past, I used to be a lot more concerned with chart performances and digital singles, but nowadays I'm more focused on proving that I'm able to put effort into my work and basically showing that I can do it," he said.

SHINee made its debut as a group in 2008. The boy band released the three-part album The Story of Light this year following member Jonghyun's death in December 2017.
