K-pop Group SuperM Announces the Release Date of Their First Album
SM Entertainment recently announced its partnership with Capital Music Group and its independent label Caroline to form a K-pop group, Super M. The group is made up of established members from other SM Entertainment K-pop groups and will debut in the United States. The group just announced the date of its upcoming debut. SuperM also released information regarding merchandise and their new album.
SuperM’s album drops Oct. 4, 2019
When the group was first announced, SM Entertainment said the group’s official debut would be in October 2019. The group seems on track for that intended timeline. An announcement on SuperM’s official website revealed SuperM’s first mini-album drops Oct. 4, 2019.
SM Entertainment will release eight different versions of the album. The group is made up of seven members: Taemin, Baekhyun, Kai, Taeyong, Mark, Ten, and Lucas. Each member gets their own version of the album. The eighth album version features the group’s logo.
The album features seven songs
There are seven songs on the mini-album. The track’s names are “Jopping,” “I Can’t Stand the Rain,” “2 Fast,” “Super Car,” and “No Manners.” The last two tracks on the album are instrumental versions of “Jopping” and “I Can’t Stand the Rain.” SM Entertainment released the instrumental version of “I Can’t Stand the Rain” for fans to stream until the full album drops.
SuperM reportedly filmed a music video in Dubai
Members of SuperM were seen at airports later in August. According to reports, the members flew to Dubai to film a music video. Lucas and Ten were seen at the Beijing Capital Airport on Aug. 26. Fans saw Taemin leaving the Dubai International Airport on Aug. 28.
With the new announcement, it seems SuperM did indeed fly to Dubai to film a music video for their upcoming album. Now that the song titles have been released, fans speculate the group’s debut single is “I Can’t Stand the Rain.”
“superm title track is ‘i can’t stand the rain’ that’s why they filmed the mv in the desert,” wrote a fan on Twitter.
There are countdown teasers until SuperM’s debut date
The official announcement also released a calendar of teasers fans can expect until Oct. 4. Every few days, the group will release member images, stills from music videos, and teasers for the group’s debut. The next teaser drops on Sept. 1, 2019.
Fans can also purchase SuperM merchandise from the group’s website. One of the items available for purchase is an augmented reality shirt of each member. After announcing the album and merchandise, the Ten, Lucas, and Taeyong albums sold out on Amazon.
“y’all… taeyong, ten and lucas album ver. are all sold out on amazon. as expected from the kings,” a fan wrote on Twitter.
With the group’s album release date set, SuperM will most likely embark on their first tour soon after the album’s release.
