Top K-pop girl group Blackpink will release an album in August, making its return as a quartet after almost two years, its management company YG Entertainment announced Wednesday.

The band “is now at the final stage of recording its new album,” YG said in a statement as reported by South Korean news agency Yonhap.

“They will embark on the filming of a music video within this month and release new songs in August,” the label said.

YG added that the group would embark on a world tour at the end of the year.

The upcoming record marks Blackpink’s first release involving all members in nearly two years. The last whole-group project was the band’s first full-length album “The Album,” which dropped in October 2020 and sold over a million copies.

Last year, members Rosé and Lisa put out solo albums.

The group — composed of Jennie, Jisoo, Rosé and Lisa — previously held a concert in Manila last February 2019.
