G-Dragon Eyeing New Album, Concert Next Spring

Shared by on October 22, 2012  

K-pop artist G-Dragon is planning another surprise coming in a few months, YG Entertainment C.E.O said last week.

YG chief Yang Hyun-suk revealed in an interview with 10Asia last Thursday that G-Dragon's new album and concert are planned next spring.

“It was G-Dragon's initial plan to drop a full-track record, not a mini-album. As the release date was put off, we had a short time left for promotion. We all felt so bad about this that we've decided to release another G-Dragon's solo album and hold a concert next spring," Yang said, confirming the trendsetter's new project.

"I may set the over schedule for albums and promotions but I am not the one who make music. it’s the artists,” he added, apologizing for G-Dragon's short musical activities this year due to the two-month delay of his mini-album.

Expressing his difficulties of supporting the firm's artists’ music works, Yang said the K-pop icon will definitely make up for the lack of his presence on stage as a solo artist this year.

“I never push them or order them to do something with a due date. That’s not how YG does it. That is beyond my ability...... It is the artists, and not me, who are doing music and my job is to make a better environment for them to produce better music,” the C.E.O said in a humble manner.

Likewise, to make up for lack of 2012 activities, Yang said 2NE1 is currently recording in the studio with producer Teddy and the girls' next release will likely be a single.

  • Baby Fraise

    I love how YG said that he never push his artists to do something with a due date. That is the difference between an artist that is really involved in the creative process of their work than the one that just sing and dance whatever the producer and agency put in their mouth :)

    • http://www.facebook.com/munardinicke Nicke Munardi



    Yeah!!!!!!! Another album for GD!! Cannot wait!!

    ahhhhhhhhhhh!!!O.M.G!!NEW GD'ALBUM!!!!

  • mrsjiyong

    yessss another GD album! i just hope it's not all the same songs and two new songs... thats the only thing that bugs me about YG... i always prefer a full album than a mini, i'm willing to wait months for a full album at once!

  • http://twitter.com/Parimzhere Pary

    omg omg omg yes! omg im so psyched

  • Judyi

    No one will ever make a comeback if YG artist keep cranking songs out!

    Where can I read the full interview...in English, lets no go crazy and give me Korean to read I'm still illiterate.

    “I never push them or order them to do something with a due date. That’s not how YG does it. That is beyond my ability...... It is the artists, and not me, who are doing music and my job is to make a better environment for them to produce better music,”
    All of the applauses without anything else to say: another reason why YG is my favorite music house
    Finally 2NE1 SINGLE AND ANOTHER GS MUSIC MATERIAL with all and the GSTROLLS (hope not as many as before)
