MBLAQ to release a Christmas single

MBLAQ is preparing to spread some Christmas cheer with their very first Christmas single!

On November 25th, a representative from J.Tune Camp revealed, “It’s the first time in three years since their debut that they will release a Christmas single. Initially, we wanted to release a new album at the end of this month, but due to their overseas activities, it has been pushed to early next year. With that being said, the members directly asked if they could record a Christmas carol”.

They continued, “MBLAQ wanted to share a gift with their fans, who have been waiting for their comeback. Their carol will be a playful song that will reflect the winter season with its warm and sweet lyrics”.

The song will be released in early December.
