BLACKPINK to release new music in August, plot enormous 2022 world tour

BLACKPINK will release new music next month, according to their record label, with a sprawling world tour also on the cards for later in the year.

It’s unclear exactly what, or how much new material will be released in August, however in a press release from YG Entertainment (via blackpink-new-music-world-tour-1235110815/”Billboard), it’s confirmed that BLACKPINK are in the “final stages of recording a new album”. The group – which consists of Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé and Lisa – released their first full-length effort, ‘THE ALBUM’, in October 2020.

YG went on to say that BLACKPINK’s forthcoming second album would kickstart “a continuous large-scale project which will extend through the second half of the year”, with the tease of “a lot of BLACKPINK-esque music [that] has been prepared over a long period of time”. It’s implied that the group’s new album will be just one of several releases planned for the 2022.

In addition to those “large-scale projects”, BLACKPINK will hit the road for an ambitious world tour – described by YG as “the largest world tour in the history of a K-pop girl group” – that comes in a bid to “expand their rapport with fans worldwide”.

Word of BLACKPINK’s comeback first emerged back in April, when reports claimed that a new album could arrive “as early as June”. YG shot down the rumours of an album releasing that soon, but confirmed that BLACKPINK were indeed preparing for a return.

That return was also teased by Jennie during her guest appearance on the Game Caterers YouTube channel last March, where she said: “BLACKPINK is also making a comeback soon. I don’t know if I’m allowed to say this, but since I’m the only [BLACKPINK member] here, I’ll just say it. Please look forward to it. Thank you very

Blackpink Announce Forthcoming Album, ‘Large-Scale’ World Tour

Blackpink will return with new music in August, according to an announcement from their music agency YG Entertainment. The company revealed that the K-Pop group — Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé and Lisa — are in the “final stages of recording a new album.”

The band’s new music will kick off “a continuous large-scale project which will extend through the second half of the year.” The press released added, “a lot of Blackpink-esque music has been prepared over a long period of time. On top of new music and large-scale projects, Blackpink will also go on the largest world tour in the history of a K-pop girl group by the end of the year to expand their rapport with fans worldwide.”

Last week, the K-Pop group became the first-ever music act to reach 75 million subscribers on YouTube. The quartet has racked up more than 25 billion collective streams across less than 300 videos uploaded to YouTube since their debut in 2016. Last year, the four-piece unseated Justin Bieber as the platform’s most-followed artist. Now, he trails not-so-closely behind with just over 69.3 million subscribers, but with BTS hot on his tail with 68.7 million.

Blackpink’s first full-length album, The Album, debuted via Interscope in October 2020. Jisoo teased the group’s follow-up LP earlier this year in Blackpink’s deep-diving Rolling Stone cover story.

“We don’t just receive a completed song,” she eplained. “We are involved from the beginning, building the blocks, adding this or that feeling, exchanging feedback — and this process of creating makes me feel proud of our music. If we just received pre-made songs, it would feel mechanical. I feel more love for the process, because we say, ‘How about adding this in the
