YG Entertainment

It's been in the works for over a year now, but BIGBANG's full-length Made album is finally coming before 2016 ends.

The K-pop phenoms' record label YG Entertainment confirmed the news on Friday with a new promotional photo, saying that Made would be "coming soon." 

Fans began speculating that they might hear the LP as soon as Dec. 1, as YG had previously teased their next artist making a return to the K-pop scene on that date.

Originally announced in May 2015, Made has been a long-awaited project ever since it was revealed that the band would release a pair of new singles at the top of the month for four months. September 2015 served as the original full-length release date. From May to August, we got some awesome songs—"Loser," "Let's Not Fall in Love," "Bae Bae"—but when September rolled around, nothing.

Made will likely be the last release before the members enlist in South Korea's mandatory military service with member TOP confirmed to serve next year
