BLACKPINK has finally announced an official release date for their upcoming album BORN PINK. On Tuesday, August 9th, the group announced their high-anticipated comeback album will drop on September 16th. That's just one month after their previously announced pre-release single "Pink Venom" will give fans a taste of the album on August 19th. The K-pop sensations revealed the name and date for their second full-length album on Instagram with a sleek teaser poster on Instagram.
BORN PINK will follow their 2020 project called The Album, which was the group's first full-length work since their debut back in 2016. The eight-track album featured collaborations with American pop stars like Selena Gomez and Cardi B.
Last month, producer and OneRepublic frontman Ryan Tedder teased fans about the upcoming album. While talking with Good Morning America, Tedder said, “I can’t tell you what’s coming out. I think one or two of my songs have made the album. From what I’ve been told, and the stuff that I did with them, I can just say is very true to their sound." Tedder co-wrote BLACKPINK's 2020 collaboration with Cardi B called "Bet You Wanna."
After the album is released in September, the group will embark on a BORN PINK World Tour. At the end of November, BLACKPINK will head to Europe and then to Asia and the Middle East to ring in the new year.
