Red Velvet’s third  full-length album  out in November

Red Velvet is set to release its highly anticipated third full-length album in November, as confirmed by the group’s agency SM Entertainment on 18 September.

“Red Velvet is preparing a full-length studio album with the goal of [releasing the album in] November,” the agency said.

The album would mark the group’s first full-length album in six years following the release of the critically acclaimed and chart-topping Perfect Velvet in November 2016.

Red Velvet was consistent last year in releasing hit after hit. The phenomenal South Korean girl group previously released two mini albums with The ReVe Festival 2022 — Feel My Rhythm in March 2022 and The ReVe Festival 2022 — Birthday in November 2022. The group also released its first Japanese studio album, Bloom, in April 2022.

Recently, Irene, the group’s leader and main rapper, was rumored to be not renewing her contract with SM Entertainment. However, no official confirmation followed the rumor.

Another member, Yeri, had previously hinted that they were preparing to release a new album during the group’s anniversary live broadcast in August.

Red Velvet is a wildly popular South Korean girl group composed of Irene, Seulgi, Wendy, Joy and Yeri. The quintet is recognized for unique, distinctive concepts and enchanting music that has captured the attention of a global audience and a massive fandom called ReVeluv.

Debuting in 2014, the group has given birth to such hits as “Happiness,” “Bad Boy,” “Psycho,” “Feel My Rhythm” and more.
