Hallyu girl group Girls’ Generation will release their latest single “The Boys” in the U.S. and other countries, through Interscope Records, an American record label owned by the Universal Music Group. The record label is home to many big-name stars, including Lady Gaga, Eminem and the Black Eyed Peas.
SM Entertainment, the group’s agency, announced on Wednesday that the new single will be released on Oct. 19, through iTunes, Facebook and other online channels.
The American label will also release the single in countries in Europe, South America, and Asia, the agency said.
Teddy Riley, American composer who has worked with such pop culture heavyweights as Michael Jackson, Bobby Brown and Lady Gaga, produced the upcoming track.
The nine-member girl group is also scheduled to release their third studio album in Korea on Oct. 19. They will also appear on KBS’ Music Bank on Oct. 21.
The group, who debuted in 2007, released their first Japanese album in June. The album topped the Oricon Weekly Charts in the first week, the best performance by a foreign artist making a Japanese debut. They were also appointed PR ambassadors for Visit Korea Year 2010-2012 by the Visit Korea Committee in August.
