2NE1 is delaying their comeback as well as the release of their new album.
A representative of YG Entertainment stated on the 12th KST, “There were plans to release 2NE1′s new album within this month. However, because there were so many good songs and [because they are putting their hearts and souls into this album], the release period has been delayed.”
The representative went on, “Currently, 2NE1 is planned to return to the music world with their new album in mid-July. As the 2NE1 members are absorbed in album preparations these days, it’ll be appreciated if you take a lot of interest in [the upcoming album],” making it clear that the group was delaying their comeback due to album production and not to avoid competition with other groups.
2NE1′s comeback in June was recently voted as the most anticipated comeback by netizens. Though their comeback has been delayed, the members have expressed that they won’t let their fans down when it comes to their upcoming promotions.
This July will mark one year since 2NE1 has released a new album. Their solo concert in July is reported to go on as planned.
