Twice in Seoul, South Korea on Dec. 28, 2015.

Less than half a year since Signal, K-pop girl group TWICE announced their first full-length studio album.

Twicetagram, a social-media-inspired album, will be released Oct. 30 in South Korea, rounding out a highly competitive month for the Korean music world. The album will be fronted by a new single titled “Likey,” the act’s third single of the year following “Knock Knock” and “Signal.”

Accompanying the news, TWICE dropped a short teaser trailer on Monday (Oct. 16) that hinted to the song's propulsive sound and featured the nine members of the band encountering Instagram-esque hearts in their daily life, bringing the "Likes" of social media offline.

“Likey” will be released just two weeks after the girl group released their first original Japanese single, “One More Time,” which landed the nonet in the top 10 of the Japan Hot 100.

The new album will be TWICE’s first full-length since the girl group debuted in 2015 after being hand-picked through a televised competition program. Ever since, each of the group’s singles have become major hits in the K-pop world. They became the highest ranking female K-pop act in 2017 to appear on the Heatseekers chart with Signal in May, with the album peaking at No. 11.
