Nearly a year after their latest album, South Korean boy band Super Junior is set to release another full-length album in winter. The new LP will mark the group's tenth studio album and is scheduled to arrive in December. 

Super Junior took to their social media to make the announcement on October 25 and revealed the upcoming album comes in celebration of their 15th anniversary. Additionally, Super Junior is not letting fans go without some music from the album before its release and is sharing one of its tracks, 'The Melody', along with an accompanying music video on November 6 at 5:00 am EST. The announcement came with a new cheerful photo of the band sharing snacks and drinks in a living room. Check it out below.



 

Fans were quick to share their excitement on Twitter. "Now we are talking," said a fan while another exclaimed, "HOLY S**T," in all caps and shared a 60fps fan-cam clip of the group performing.



 

 



 

One fan wrote, "IM NOT READY HOLD ON" with a teary-eyed emoji.



 

 

"It’s official, I’m about to be broke... btw I’m not complaining," shared a fan.



 

Other fans felt the wait between projects was long, with many responding "Finally" to the news. "YES ABOUT TIME" said a fan.



 

 



 

"The news that I was waiting for," added another eager fan.



 

Super Junior's upcoming record follows 'Time Slip' which released back in October 2019. The album was then re-released as a repackaged album, titled 'Timeless', in January. The album features nine members, Leeteuk, Heechul, Yesung, Shindong, Eunhyuk, Donghae, Siwon, Ryeowook and Kyuhyun, who returned to the group after his mandatory military service.

The album was a commercial success, earning 350,000 pre-orders and reaching number one on iTunes in 32 countries, and also received platinum certification in December. According to Hanteo News, the LP recorded a first-week sale of more than 270,000 copies, breaking the band's previous first-week sale record by 215 percent, from the album 'Play'.

Another successful record was the band's 2020 EP 'I Think U', which released in January, and marked Super Junior's second Japanese project. Upon its release, the EP peaked at No 1 on the Oricon Daily Albums Chart.

Given the fact that the group released a full-length a year ago, it's safe to say the new album has been long-awaited and highly anticipated and its release is going to be huge for fans. To build on that anticipation, Super Junior will be holding an online fan meeting 'Beyond LIVE – SUPER JUNIOR 15th Anniversary Special Event – Invitation' on V Live on November 7 at 4:00 am EST. Tickets will be available for purchase from October 27 at 2:00 am EST on V Live and YES24, according to Soompi.
