Korean idol group SS501 is gearing up for a comeback with their upcoming new album "DESTINATION" due out May 31, according to their agency DSP Entertainment on Tuesday.

DSP explained in a press release that some of the most talented musicians in Korea, Europe and the U.S., including prominent Korean-American music producer Steven Lee, collaborated to create the new album.

Lee, who had written and arranged all the tracks in the group's previous album "REBIRTH," also composed the title track, named "Love Ya," in the new album.

All the songs in "DESTINATION" have been arranged to piano accompaniments while incorporating a minimum of electronic sounds that are prevalent in current K-pop music.

Some of the songs included in the record are R&B tune "Let Me Be The One" and a dance number called "Crazy 4 U," which was performed by the band during their "PERSONA Asia Tour" but left out on the previous album. Fans are said to have requested that SS501 include this particular track on the new album.

SS501, who debuted in 2005 with single "Warning," made a successful comeback to the music scene last October, topping various music charts with their second mini-album "Rebirth".

They kicked off their "1st Asia Tour Persona" in Seoul last August and went on to perform in Tokyo, Taipei, Shanghai and Hong Kong.

The five member group are scheduled to give a comeback performance on KBS' "Music Bank" on June 4.

I'm really confused now. Some say the album will be out on May 28, now it's May 31? Which is which? I guess we'll just have to wait and see. Anyway, regardless of the date, I'm really really excited to hear the songs! And they've included Crazy 4 U! Yipppeee!!! I'm glad they included it in the new album! Can't wait for the release!!!

I also read there's another date sometime end of June. It's really intriguing why there are several dates -I hope DSP is not using the accident to cover up their deficiencies .Besides, they said before they are 90% done .Anyway,I hope KHJ did not carry these burden on his shoulder .Poor kid !

DSP should get their act together .They let rumors fly left and right then attempt to do damage control but issue confusing announcements.Definitely not good professionally speaking for SS501.
