Update was Jane Zhang's second studio album that was released on August 2, 2007. Zhang had spent one year in preparations for this album. [1] When asked about the album's name "Update," Zhang explained that this is an up-graded step from her first album, "The One." R&B and jazz style songs were included in the new album.[1] One of her tracks, We Are Together (simplified Chinese: 我们在一起; traditional Chinese: 我們在一起)was produced for a project by the United Nations Children's Fund. [2]

When promoting her album in Shanghai on August 23, 2007, over 400 fans attended the event. The event turned into a charity activity as Zhang announced that all the proceeds she received at the event will be donated to a girl, who is suffering from leukemia.[3]

The track "我們說好的" (What We Agreed) was nominated for Top 10 Gold Songs at the Hong Kong TVB8 Awards, presented by television station TVB8, in 2007. [4]
