Singer and artist Naul will transform his 2012 debut solo album “Principle of My Soul” into a digital work of art, singer Long Play Music’s label announced on Friday.

The singer’s new digital artwork will be released as Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs), so his fans can not only enjoy the artwork, but also own it. The new digital illustration features a vinyl version of Naul’s “Principle of my Soul”.

“Naul’s upcoming NFT artwork is significant in that it’s a rebuilt NFT limited edition with cover artwork designed by Naul,” Long Play Music said in a statement.

The artwork was released at 9 a.m. today via Klip Drops’ Panic Button and dFactory content startup. It will go on sale Saturday from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m.

Klip Drops is a new service developed by Ground X, Kakao’s blockchain technology subsidiary, to trade digital artwork and collect NFTs. The service became available last month.

Naul is also a member of the popular Korean ballad group Brown-Eyed Soul and an artist who has held exhibitions under the name “NAMMSE”. His latest exhibition was called “(NAMMSE): Music Industry” and was held last June.
