In October, the long-awaited return of the K-pop trio MAMAMOO is expected.
RBW Entertainment released a teaser poster for the female group’s comeback on September 27 at midnight KST. The release date for MAMAMOO’s twelfth mini-album, titled “Mic ON,” is set for October 11 at 6 PM KST.
According to Korea JoongAng Daily, the agency described the record’s title as follows: “MAMAMOO has turned on its mics and is ready to make some noise.” The tracklist and other information about the album will likely be revealed in the next several weeks.
After their final album, “I Say MAMAMOO: The Best,” came out in September 2021, “Mic ON” will be MAMAMOO’s first full-group release in over a year. Only the hit single “mumumumuch” and the song “Happier Than Ever” was brand new to that album.
All four members of the band, Solar, Moonbyul, Wheein, and Hwasa, have been working on solo projects for the past year. A month ago, members, Solar and Moonbyul collaborated to form the group’s first subunit MAMAMOO+, releasing the track “Better” with guest appearances by rappers BIG Naughty.
Solar, the group’s leader, and vocalist spoke to NME about her debut mini-album, “: Face,” and revealed that she had difficulty coming to terms with the group’s success.
“At the time, I was too preoccupied with trying to make ends meet and putting in long hours at the office to give any thought to how I felt,” she said.
“Looking back on it all now, I’m very thankful for all those times, and I’m thankful for everything.”
New music from the quartet was first reported by RBW Entertainment in June, just in time for their eighth anniversary as a group. Moreover, the agency said at the time that MAMAMOO would be performing live in concert sometime later in 2022.
