The tweet led us to an Instagram account that was specially created for f(x)’s comeback.
Several teaser pictures were posted on the account and one of the photos came with the caption, “[4 Walls] – An Exhibit”:
The picture seemed to signify that the group will make their comeback as a 4-member girl group for the first time ever.
This came after maknae Sulli announced that she would leave the group to focus on her acting career.
If all these are indeed the teasers for their comeback, the new album will mark their first album since releasing “Red Light” in July 2014. No word on what the 4th album will be named and how many songs will be included in it, but we are excited to find out what they might have in store.
As they are known for their energetic electronic and psychedelic music, we do wonder if they will have a different approach to their new album. It’ll be exciting to see what kind of comeback concept they will pull off too.
What do you think their comeback concept will look like? Do you think their new album will consist of their self-written or self-composed tracks? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.
