Antenna Music CEO and famed singer-songwriter-pianist You Hee-yeol will be dropping a new album as part of his one-man project, Toy, on Nov. 18, according to an announcement by Antenna Music on Tuesday.

The duo-band-turned-solo act Toy first debuted in 1994 and featured the ballad vocal styles of You and Yoon Jeong-oh. After parting ways in 1996, You has been the sole member of Toy, which has released six full-length albums to date.

Toy’s upcoming seventh studio album will mark its first album release in nearly seven years, since “Thank You” came out in 2007. The album will include a number of collaborative singles, featuring noteworthy artists such Sung Shi-kyung, Kim Dong-ryul, Lee Juck, hip-hop group Dynamic Duo and others.

On top of his own musical career, You is currently hosting the popular TV music program “You Hee-yeol’s Sketchbook” and is scheduled to return as a judge on the upcoming fourth season of singing audition program “K-pop Star.”
