2NE1 will be back with a new album on 9th September.
YG Entertainment posted a message on 17th August, “2NE1 will release their full length 1st album on 9th September. There will be 12 songs in total in the album, and the album will be titled ‘To Anyone’. Of the 12 songs, 6 songs are new songs, 4 songs are from their previously-released digital singles and 2 songs are bonus tracks.”
“There will be 3 songs assigned as the title songs and the girls will promote them at the same time. As a music producer, even though I’ve heard of a double title song, this will be the first time I hear about 3 songs as the title songs. Everyone will get to learn about them in a while.”
It was also added that, “One of the main obstacles for having more than 1 song as the title song will be producing the MVs at the same time. It is hard on time basis and economic basis. And according to the preferences of the masses, the song will also perform different up on charts. Furthermore, out of the 4 main TV music programs, 3 are music chart incorporated. Hence these broadcast companies will only want the songs with better chances of doing well on charts. However, instead of saying that it is the greed to win #1 with the 3 title songs, 2NE1 wants to show a variety of their music styles.”
YG also said, “One of the title songs, we will have an English version of it released and broadcast in an overseas channel. There will be no teasers released for the album. The 3 MVs will be revealed together with the album on 9th September at 12 midnight. ”
