Big Bang is back and set to release new music this spring
Big Bang will return with new music this spring, the legendary boy band’s agency YG Entertainment said Monday.
The band has finished recording and is set to film the music video.
While member T.O.P. has left the agency as his contract came to an end and is focusing on solo activities as both an artist and a CEO, he is still a member of the band and took part in making the new music.
“We respect that T.O.P. wants to expand his horizons beyond Big Bang and he has had thorough discussions with the other members,” YG said. “He will be a part of Big Bang’s activities whenever possible.”
It has been four years since Big Bang last released its song “Flower Road” (2018), before going on an extensive hiatus due to the members' mandatory military services. It was also the last song to include ex-member Seungri, who departed from the band in 2019 after the Burning Sun scandal, an infamous sex, drugs and police protection scandal surrounding a nightclub of the same name.
The four remaining memebers are G-Dragon, Taeyang, Daesung and T.O.P.
Big Bang debuted in 2006 with the album “Big Bang Vol. 1 – Since 2007.” The band later saw immense success with songs like “Lies” (2007), “Haru Haru” (2008), “Tonight” (2011), “Fantastic Baby” (2012) and “Bang Bang Bang” (2015).
