CHAI has announced that their highly-anticipated 3rd album WINK will release worldwide on May 21, 2021. Fans who cannot wait for the new record can enjoy the four-member rock band’s newest track ACTION which was released on Tuesday (January 19) along with a music video.
WINK comes as the first album by the Nagoya-hailing band to be released by the American music label Sub Pop in a new contract signed with CHAI.
The new album is their first in over two years following the release of their successful second studio album Punk back in 2019. It will feature 12 tracks spanning multiple genres and features appearances from a selection of artists deeply respected by CHAI such as Ric Wilson and Mndsgn.
“We want this album to become your new friends,” comments CHAI. “It will be there for you, give you peace of mind, get annoyed with you if the time calls for it, and support you when you feel like running away. All so you can wink too.” (Translated from Japanese by MMN)

The world as we know it has changed,
but even with that, it’s still a world where nothing really changes.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if there more ACTION rooted in happiness?
Be the change that you want to see!…
I’m going to be the pioneer in seeing the world I want to see, meeting the people I want to meet!
We start off by expressing the fun in ACTION with this music video♡
Why don’t you join us?!
It’s that type of song♡
CHAI’s second studio album PUNK made it into Pitchfork’s “Best New Music” category and was also selected as one of The 50 Best Albums of 2019. We look forward to seeing where CHAI goes with their upcoming third album WINK.
