Chinese mainland singer and actress Han Xue released her third
album in Beijing Tuesday afternoon, October 30, 2007.
Han released her first album in 2004 and in 2006, released
Summer Love, her second album that seemed entirely devoted
to summer. Her numerous fans have waited 19 months for a brand-new
album. Han Xue revealed that over 3,000 bunches of johnny-jump-ups
were transported from Yunnan to Beijing by air in order to finish
the image for the album cover.
At the well-decorated press conference, her label Sony BMG
presented her with a special gift, an ice sculpture containing her
album within it. It was such a big surprise that Han Xue burst into
joyful tears. Sony BMG predicts good sales for Han's new album.
A Journey into Fantasy, Han Xue's new album expresses
sweetness and happiness. Her effortless presentation makes songs
sound natural and removes any sense of annoyance the listener may
have. Anyone would be lost in her refreshing melodies as soon as
her songs begin.
Han confirmed that the name of the album represents her own
journey into success.
Since she joined Sony BMG in 2001, she has had increasing
success on the music scene and the silver screen. She now continues
along her journey to her dream.
"I have made progress step by step since I started acting. This
autumn, my new TV series A Love Before Gone with the Wind
airs on China Central Television (CCTV) and I release my new album.
My efforts help me win more recognition from my audience. For me,
A Journey into Fantasy is my own musical story."
