B.A.P to release new album
The boy group B.A.P has announced it is returning with a new album next month, according to its agency, TS Entertainment.
B.A.P will release its first full-length album, titled “First Sensibility,” on Feb. 3, following two mini-albums released last year, “One Shot” and “Badman.”
The lead-off single for the new album will be “1004 (Angel),” which TS Entertainment said will show the group’s emotional side.
“They have shown a warrior-like image, full of charisma and energetic performances, and now they will show how cool and sexy they can be at the same time to attract attentions from girls,” the agency said.
The agency expects demand to be high after the strong response to the group’s previous releases.
“Badman” reached the top of the hip-hop album chart on iTunes in the United States last year, albeit briefly, and made it to No. 2 on the same chart in Japan.
It also topped the world album chart on Billboard.
The group also had two overseas tours, including the B.A.P Live on Earth Pacific around Asia and Warrior Begins in Japan.
“With the experiences they have learned from performing overseas, the group will show off its improved musical talents along with sturdier teamwork,” said the agency.
