Taeyang’s next solo album may have been on a very slow simmer since 2011 but the heat may have been turned up a little bit more. Tablo (who had Taeyang feature on his song “Tomorrow“) recently tweeted about some ongoing work in the studio:

Producer Chon Seung Woo later tweeted that “It’s been a long time since I directed one for YoungBae. I’m doing this with Tablo.” Chon Seung Woo was the composer behind “Baby I’m Sorry“ for Taeyang’s solo album HOT and Big Bang’s “A Fool’s Only Tears“ He had also previously tweeted about finally meeting up with Taeyang and fellow YG-trainee (now B2st member) Hyunseung in his home after a long time, leading to some speculation that they might be working together soon.

Update: Chon Seung Woo also tweeted: “Done recording YB and Tablo are both satisfied with the work. I’m satisfied too.”
I am so psyched for this! I really like (okay, love) the work Taeyang has done with both Tablo and Chon Seung Woo so I’m now way more excited for this album than I was previously. (Didn’t think it was possible, but there you go…) An actual release date may still be somewhere in the hazy future, but I can tell this is definitely going to be a labor of love…
