On May 21, YG Entertainment, Big Bang’s agency, reported on its blog YG Life, “Big Bang will release a new album on June 6.”
According YG, it will be a special album including total nine songs.
Including the lead track “Monster,” co-composed by G-Dragon and Choi Phil Kang, Big Bang’s new album will contain five new songs, such as “Still Alive,” “Feeling,” “Round And Round,” and “Whew,” and some songs from their fifth mini-album released in February, such as “Blue,” “Fantastic Baby,” “Bad Boy,” and “Love Dust.”
It’s a special album but it can be considered as a new mini-album because more than half of the songs are new ones.
YG says, “This album is specially prepared by Big Bang to thank their fans for supporting and loving them. The lead track ‘Monster’ is very strong and different from Big Bang’s previous songs.”
YG also says, “Big Bang will create a large-scale music video in collaboration with Hyundai Card.”
Big Bang recently started their national tour in Japan. They will hold total 13 concerts in five cities, Nagoya (May 17 to 18). Yokohama (May 25 to 27), Osaka (May 31 to June 3), Saitama (June 16 to 17), and Fukuoka (June 23 to 24).
As Big Bang will again hold additional concerts in Osaka in November and Tokyo in December, they’re expected to meet over 255,000 audiences in Japan.
