The K-pop star's last release came in the form of 2018's 'Taemin' album

SHINee member Taemin has shared his latest solo track ‘Want’, and a new mini-album of the same name.

The K-pop star put out both releases earlier today (February 11). ‘Want’ marks his first music since last year’s self-titled album.

In the artful video for the song, the musician is seen at with a snake wrapped around his right arm, surrounded by magnifying glasses, and delivering a series of highly choreographed moves. You can watch it below now.

Taemin’s second mini-album features seven tracks in total and is available to listen to on all streaming platforms now. You can listen to it below.

SHINee released a trilogy of Korean albums last year, titled ‘The Story Of Light’. A repackaged version bringing together all three parts and new song ‘Countless’ was released in September.

Taemin’s bandmates have either all enlisted for military service or are set to later this year. Leader Onew enlisted in December 2018, while Key and Minho are due to follow suit in the first half of this year.

Conscription still exists in South Korea, requiring men between the ages of 18 and 28 to serve in either the army, marine corps, navy, or air force. The length of the service varies depending on which field a draftee is in, but all military service is set to be gradually reduced before 2022 according to a new policy introduced last year.
