K-pop heavyweight EXO will return to the music scene with a new album in early November.

Fans are in for a treat as all the nine members including Chinese member Lay will get together and take part in the making of Chinese work for the album.

In January this year, the group released its debut Japanese studio album, “Countdown.” All four studio albums the group released in Korea have sold over a million copies. 

Presales for the upcoming album begin Thursday.
