Label SJ has announced the delay of Super Junior‘s upcoming 10th full album once again.
Super Junior’s 10th full album, titled The Renaissance, was originally slated to be released in December 2020. A pre-release single had also been released ahead of the album on November 6, 2020, to celebrate the group’s 15th debut anniversary, titled “The Melody”.
In a statement, Label SJ first announced that the album had been postponed from December 2020 to January 2021. On January 8, however, there was another statement announcing the delay of the album yet again, from January 2021 to February 16, 2021.
Later, the agency then again announced another delay by a month, relaying to fans that the album release date had now been shifted to March 16, 2021, citing “unavoidable circumstances”.

Hello, this is Label SJ.
To all fans, who have waited for Super Junior’s 10th album with great patience, we kindly express our sincere apologies.
The release date of Super Junior’s 10th album, which was originally planned for February 16, has been delayed to March 16.
What has happened is certainly against our will, but we are putting all our efforts and hearts into bringing the best for the upcoming album. Due to unavoidable circumstances, the rescheduling was a painful decision for Label SJ.
We are sorry for the multiple changes in schedule. We express our sincere apology, on behalf of Super Junior members, who have also waited a long time to greet you with a new album.
Surely we promise to satisfy our invaluable fans with the most perfect preparation and a satisfactory album.
Thanks for your generosity and understanding.
Fans are not pleased about the album having been postponed multiple times.
i can never comprehend how a supposedly 'anniversary' album gets this delayed. the boys have been hyping it since this time last year & it's disheartening to see them in a situation like this bc of their label's mismanagement. label sj i'm begging u do better. sj deserves better.
