K-pop group Girls’ Generation will release its fourth EP, titled “Mr.Mr.,” this month, the group’s management agency said Tuesday.

It will be the group’s first album since “I Got a Boy,” released in January 2013.

Before the official release, the group will upload the title track “Mr.Mr.” on local online music services such as Melon, Naver Music and Genie, SM Entertainment said.

On Tuesday, the girls unveiled teaser videos on their official website, YouTube and Facebook.

“Girls’ Generation gained global achievement for ‘I Got a Boy.’ We expect the new album also will succeed in getting wide attention at home and abroad,” the company said in a press release.

In November, the nine-member group received the “Video of the Year” award for “I Got a Boy” at the 2013 YouTube Awards, beating out such stars as Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, One Direction and Psy.

It took the fifth spot on Time Magazine’s Top 10 Songs of 2013 list for the same song, making them the only Asian artists on the list. (Yonhap)
