Singer Lena Park, also known as Park Jung-hyun, will release her eighth studio album next week, her agency announced on Saturday.

T-Entertainment said the 36-year-old diva will release “Parallax” on June 19. It will be her first album since “10 Ways to Say I Love You” in 2009.

The Korean-American, who has been back in the spotlight after being featured on shows like “Survival: I’m a Singer” and appearing as a judge and a mentor on the audition show “Great Birth 2,” released a teaser video on her official Web site (www.parkjunghyun.com) and her Twitter account on Saturday and announced the date.

Park, who made her singing debut in 1998, also is planning a nationwide concert tour that will include 10 cities. T-Entertainment said she will begin her tour, which will run through August, on June 23 and 24 in Gimhae, South Gyeongsang.
