Earlier today (September 7) the band announced the title of their next single, ‘Shut Down’, along with sharing a poster for the new song.

In a statement to South Korean outlet Yonhap News Agency published shortly after the announcement was made, YG Entertainment described ‘Shut Down’ as “a title that is intuitive and creates a strange tension”.

“BLACKPINK will once again captivate music fans around the world with [their] unique charisma and girl-crush charm,” the statement read.

This week the band also shared details of their 2022 European and North American tour including two UK dates.
