It was rumored that Hong Kong popular singer Eason Chan (陳奕迅) will be retiring in two years time, causing a widespread of alarm and worry among fans. Eason’s manager Katie Chan (陳家瑛) denied the speculations, stating that Eason is only taking a break to recharge his energy.
Early speculations began when it was revealed that Eason’s contract with Universal Music would end in 2016. In recent years, many noticed that Eason’s workload has steadily increased and leaving him work-weary. Last year, Eason claimed he was bipolar and exhibited odd behavior during a concert. He took a vacation in England afterwards with wife Hilary Tsui (徐濠縈)to relax and balance his emotions.
During an earlier show, the 40-year-old singer hinted that he no longer wants to work in the music industry, “I still have two albums left before my contract expires. I really want to rest after I’m done and I don’t want to release another album. Actually, it should be that I don’t want to work anymore.” Eason’s statement immediately lead to speculations that he may retire from the industry.
Although Eason will not be retiring any time soon, Katie disclosed that for the time being, Eason will be slowing down with his music releases and performances. However, he would finish up his current projects as scheduled. After his contract expires in 2016, Eason hopes to venture out and explore different artistic elements instead.
