G-Dragon Solo Comeback: Yang Hyun Suk Confirms Album Release Date; YG CEO Also Reveals Taeyang is Next
G-Dragon is making a comeback and it is going to happen soon. In light of his new album release, Yang Hyun Suk teases fans with by updating his social networking site with a photo of the Big Bang leader's compositions that are now being processed.
On May 29, via his Instagram account, the YG Entertainment founder uploaded a snap of a computer screen with G-Dragon's folder that contains songs for his soon-to-be released solo album. The photo was captioned with hashtags, "#GD #GDragon #NewAlbum #mixinprocess #verysoon."
Last week, various media outlets reported that G-Dragon is filming for his music video and photos were released as well. However, there was really no direct confirmation about what the MV is for and whether the Big Bang leader is really making a solo comeback. Yang Hyun Suk's post confirmed GD's return but no date was specified.
Now, just a few hours after announcing that the G-Dragon is releasing his solo album, the YG CEO revealed that the recording has just been completed and it will be out in the market in early June. This will be the singer's first comeback after almost four years of hiatus as a soloist.
After the launching of his new album, G-Dragon is embarking on a concert tour entitled "G-Dragon 2017 World Tour, Act III: M.O.T.T.E." The tour has been set to kick off in Seoul on June 10 and the "Coup d'Etat" singer will proceed to perform in about 24 key cities across Asia, U.S. Australia and Japan.
Meanwhile, Soompi reported that once G-Dragon completes his activities, Taeyang is next in the schedule, to return as a solo artist. GD is expected to finish his tour by September so it can be assumed that the "Eyes, Nose, Lips" singer is making his own comeback just before the year ends.
