Blackpink reveals release of full-length album set for October 2
Mark Oct. 2 on the calendar — girl group Blackpink has announced the date of the release of its full-length album on Tuesday, upping expectations from fans around the world.
The group's agency YG Entertainment announced the news with a poster of the album, which showed a pink tiara against a black backdrop.
The poster had no other details or clues, and only had the date and the words, "The Album."
This will be the first full-length album for Blackpink since its debut in 2016, and comes after its latest single has broken record after record.
"Blackpink will be aiming for the global market under a systematic and thorough plan," the agency said.
"A project with the world's biggest music group Universal Music is also in action, which will allow Blackpink to make a bigger jump."
The group's latest and biggest hit released in June, "How You Like That," will be the lead track of the album.
