Jane Jang released her third EP "Liquid" on June 11 after a three-year break as she grappled with a paralyzing neurological condition called dystonia.

But the singer-songwriter revealed she is ready to return to perform again in the spotlight and also shared the inspiration behind her new album through an exclusive interview with The Korea Herald.

"The one thing I thought most often while I was on hiatus was that I had to follow the flow of my emotions, wherever it may go. After I wrote my songs, that 'flow' seemed to be the single common theme. So I decided to call my album 'Liquid,'" Jang said.

The singer said "Liquid" is short for "Liquid Love," or "Amor Liquido," the name of a book that briefly appears in the music video for her title track "Eat."

Jane Jang acknowledged the difficulty of her condition, admitting that she did not compose any of the songs or play the guitar herself because of the difficulty she experienced doing so.

But she viewed the limitations with positivity, saying that it was an opportunity for her to hone her singing and lyrical abilities.

"It was actually kind of nice," she said. "I was able to focus on my singing and lyrics. I especially paid attention to the storyline within each song for this album. I think these lyrics are much better written than my previous songs."

During the interview, Jang also addressed the furor surrounding her title track "Eat" which carried sexual undertones.

"Over the past two years, a lot of people have told me that I seem more feminine, or sexy, or grown-up. I think it's a very natural change and if that's where I am right now, I think there's nothing wrong with showing it," she said.

"I hope the takeaway will be that Jane Jang has grown up emotionally as a woman, and that she's back for a lot of performances," she added.
