Yes, it has finally been officially announced that SNSD will make their official comeback on the 5th of October 2011, with a brand new single written, composed and arranged by the very talented Teddy Riley.
Mr. Teddy Riley was the late Michael Jackson’s producer, as well as the founder of “New Jack Swing” and Black Street member in the 1990s. His fame currently precedes him, all the more so now that his official collaboration with our 9 ladies has been announced.

The full album itself will be released on October the 5th, on iTunes in Korea, as well as the rest of Asia, Europe, and the Americas.
As our beloved 9 ladies are now relatively well-known throughout the world, they have decided to adopt a worldwide concept in their upcoming comeback music release.
As such, there are plans for both Korean and English versions of the song and music video of “The Boys” (WooHoo 😀 !).
As a precursor of what to expect for their comeback, teaser images will be released on a regular basis. First up, starting on the 26th of September 2011, is none other than our favourite kid leader Kim Taeyeon ;).

Work by Teddy Riley who is Renowned for one of the World’s Three Producers and Michael Jackson’s Producer!
Releasing the Title Song and Music Video in Both Korean and English!
The best girl group, Girls’ Generation, who has been creating a worldwide sensation all around the world, will finally make a comeback.
Girls’ Generation will release the third album title song, ‘The Boys,’ through iTunes (Americas, Europe, South America, etc.) worldwide and through various music websites in Asia including Korea on October 4th. Also the full tracks from the album will be released on October 5th so it’s predicted to create a ‘Girls’ Generation Syndrome’ once again.
Also, this album is produced with ‘worldwide’ concept because of Girls’ Generation’s growing popularity not only in Asia but also in the world. They will reveal both Korean and English versions of ‘The Boys’ for the song and music video so it is expected to receive an enthusiastic response from music fans in the world.
Especially the title song ‘The Boys’ is written, composed and arranged by Teddy Riley, who was Michael Jackson’s producer and is considered as one of the world’s three producers. Teddy Riley was a member of ‘Black Street’ who has created the ‘New Jack Swing.’ He is currently producing Lady Gaga’s album and has been receiving worldwide reputation as the best producer so Teddy Riley’s work with Girls’ Generation is expected to make massive headlines.
Therefore, Girls’ Generation’s differentiated status and charisma which will be proved by the perfection of new songs, performances, producing technology based on SM’s global network system and Girls’ Generation’s developed abilities are enough to fascinate global music fans.
Moreover, since the third album, ‘The Boys,’ is Girls’ Generation’s new album, which will be released after the third mini album, ‘Hoot’ released last October, Girls’ Generation’s everything such as music, performance, style, etc. are predicted to become a hot issue.
In addition, Girls’ Generation has performed in overseas after they swept the grand prize at the end-of-year music awards in Korea last year. Girls’ Generation was the first foreign artist who recorded the highest sales of album by selling the first Japanese album over 680,000 copies and they ended Japan Arena Tour, which met 140,000 fans, in great success. Also, Girls’ Generation was first-ever foreign girl group to draw the largest audiences (31,000 audiences) at their solo concert in Taiwan and SMTOWN LIVE WORLD TOUR in PARIS was very successful. Girls’ Generation made these remarkable performances as the best girl group representing Asia so it is predicted to prove Girls’ Generation’s global status and influence with ‘The Boys.’
Meanwhile, starting with Taeyeon on September 26th (today), teaser images of members with new look will be released in order and it is predicted that music fans’ expectation and curiosity for Girls’ Generation’s new music and performance will grow. The third album, ‘The Boys’ will be released on October 5th.
