About a week ago, a rumor spread through the media that Faye Wong’s (王菲)
good friend, Li Jian (李健), who wrote “Legend,” has said that Faye has been busy working on her new album. He said that he would be very happy to write a few songs for her.
Yan Kiat 15 March 2010: Here’s the video of Faye’s live performance of “Liu Nian.”
I resisted publishing the rumor at the time, opting instead to wait for corroboration from a valid source. In the last few days, the rumor making the rounds in the media is that Li Yapeng (李亚鹏), Faye’s husband, has confirmed to reporters that Faye is busy writing songs for her new album.
Twelve has been mentioned in terms of the number of songs she’s written thus far. According to the reports, Faye often stops what she’s doing at home to jot down notes for her songs, and she seems to be happy in this creative mode. When asked about the compositions, LYP said that he hasn’t heard or seen the actual songs. He said that even between husband and wife, some privacy is important.
