BIGBANG to drop new album before T.O.P’s military enlistment

December 7, 2016

SEOUL, Dec. 7 (Yonhap) — South Korean boy group BIGBANG is releasing a new album before its member T.O.P joins the military in February, said the boy band’s agency.

The group’s third LP “MADE FULL ALBUM” will be released on Monday, according to YG Entertainment’s announcement on Tuesday.

The upcoming album will consist of new songs including “Fxxk It,” as well as previous hits from the “MADE series,” such as “Bang Bang Bang,” “Loser,” “Bae Bae,” “Sober,” “Let’s not fall in love” and “Zutter.”

Last year’s “MADE” project unraveled monthly singles starting May. The series spanned five months, concluding the album with a total of five EP’s. “Fxxk It” was jointly produced by the boy group leader G-Dragon and YG producer Teddy, while the lyrics were written by T.O.P.

Following the release, the singers are to make various TV appearances this time for fans who are unlikely to be able to see the full five-member act next year. They will star in variety programs including MBC TV’s “Radio Star” and “Infinite Challenge,” and also put on a special stage performance at the year-end SBS TV music awards “Gayo Daejeon,” set to air on Dec. 26.

The boy band will also conclude its 10th year anniversary concert tour “BIGBANG10 THE CONCERT — 0.TO.10″ at Gocheok Sky Dome in southwestern Seoul from Jan. 7-8.

T.O.P, the rapper of BIGBANG, had announced his February military enlistment on Nov. 22 via his agency.
