Taeyang, who is already well-known as a solo artist for his vocals and performance is also planned to release new songs in November.
Yang Hyunsuk stated “In Taeyang’s case, he was originally planned to release a summer solo album and promote it in the summer alongside G-Dragon” and “He finished producing his new album with American producers but he and I were not satisfied with the album so we decided not to release it.”
He continued “Taeyang is in the process of re-recording right now and in November he will release his new songs as singles,” and “as a Taeyang fan myself I have high expectations for his performances of his new solo songs.”

Well history certainly seems to be repeating itself. Delayed album, releasing a single first, reworking the album “that was almost finished”…. Just hope we don’t get a depression at the end of it. Considering Big Bang’s tour schedule towards the end of the year, I’m not expecting much from any promotions either. Hope they can put youtube to work this time around – I’d be happy with a kickass music video and some YG on Air. (Plus some good interviews.)
Anyway, as we’ve always said — good music is worth waiting for. Whenever you’re ready, kid !
