"走鋼索的人 (A Tightrope Walker)"
Released: June 11, 2011
Love Addict is the 14th studio album and second mandopop album by Hong Kong singer Prudence Liew. This album marks the first Mandarin language studio album release from Liew since 愛自己 Love Yourself was released in Taiwan in 2000. This album is a cover album that consists entirely of songs that were originally sung by male singers. This is the first in a series of three cover albums to be released by Liew in three different languages: the Cantonese album 偷 Stolen Moments came after in July 2012, and an untitled English album to be released in 2013.
The recording of this album was mixed in 24-bit with a sampling rate of 96 kHz. It was then mastered in United States and the discs were compressed and made in Germany in Super Audio CD format. Liew has stated that this is a true album for audiophiles.
Photography for this album was done by Hong Kong actor Chapman To, who is a photography enthusiast and a longtime fan of Liew. To admitted that this is the first time he was hired as a paid professional photographer.
The album was released on June 17, 2011, in Hong Kong. HMV Hong Kong promoted the album with an offer of tickets to Liew's mini-concert with pre-orders of the album.
Upon its release, the album charted at number 2 in the HMV Hong Kong's Overall Sales Chart behind Lady Gaga's album Born This Way and topped both the Asian Sales Chart and Cantonese/Mandarin Sales Chart for two consecutive weeks.
