After nearly three years away from the K-pop scene -- a lifetime in South Korea's quickly moving music business -- BIGBANG is back in a big way with the boy band's comeback looking more than five times as nice.

According to the quintet's Korean record label YG Entertainment, the K-pop phenoms will drop two new singles next month. That kickstarts a plan to release at least one new song on the first of every month ahead of dropping new album Made in September. The band previewed their new tracks, officially out on May 1, at the two Seoul dates of their 2015 World Tour Made.

The first, "Loser," appeals to BIGBANG's melancholy R&B and hip-hop tendencies. Like 2012 single "Blue," the new track sounds like it comes with a slower tempo, but a head-banging beat, as the guys lament about being "just a loser." Its lyrics were written by members G-Dragon and T.O.P along with longtime producer Teddy (who worked on some of BIGBANG's past singles plus songs by 2NE1 and WINNER). The band also revealed that the track was composed and arranged by Teddy with while member Taeyang also snagged co-composer credits.
