The new album will contain a total of nine tracks, including three new enka songs, and the entire album will be recorded in Japanese.

The album D-Lite contains songs under trot genre, which can be enjoyed by people across all age groups, and covers some of the most popular Japanese songs.
The DVD that comes along with the CD will include the music video for Look at me, GwiSoon and Shut Up as well as the summer episode of ‘How to Enjoy Vacation in Hokkaido.’

Daesung stated, “It is a project that reflects a new side of me, setting apart from Big Bang. I hope that people across all ages, from children to elderly people, will listen to it. Above all else, I hope that many people will sing and dance as they enjoy the year-end parties.”

Before releasing D-Lite, Daesung will also be releasing his solo arena tour DVD D-Lite DLive 2014 in Japan ~D’slove on October 22, containing clips from Daesung’s 15 concerts in eight cities around Japan, gathering over 170,000 fans.
