“I’ve been looking forward to Put Up a Fight’s release for a while now, and I’m thrilled to join forces with 88rising through the process. I’m a huge fan of their work, and I’m very happy to take part in their vision. It feels surreal to have SXSW, album release, and HITC New York ahead of me. To say I’m excited would be an understatement—I absolutely cannot wait for what’s to come.” – LØREN stated

‘Put Up a Fight’ is a pop-punk-meets-indie-rock-inspired project complemented by LØREN’s grungy Korean and English vocals. The EP shows LØREN more vulnerable than ever, flexing his songwriting muscles to tackle subjects including mental illness and isolation.

The news of the EP follows the release of three buzzy singles in 2021 which earned LØREN a combined total of over 14M views in less than a year. He is known for writing several songs for the global phenomenon, BLACKPINK, and starring in one of their music videos gained him popularity in the K-pop scene.

LØREN’s musical prowess and editorial look have garnered him over 1.2M Instagram followers and allowed him to grace the covers of Vogue Hong Kong, DAZED Korea, i-D, and most recently, Female Magazine, as their first male cover star. LØREN can also be seen modeling in Saint Laurent campaigns as the Korean rocker is currently the face of the brand.

On March 15, LØREN joins Balming Tiger at the Tiger Den showcase, SXSW’s first all-Asian music festival. On May 21, he will be performing live in the United States for the first time at SXSW and 88rising’s Head in the Clouds, the label’s annual music festival.
