This is not a test!

Nine Muses have just released all the details for their comeback album, and I am living, dying, and reincarnating.

The Iconic Eight will release Special Summer Album <9Muses S/S Edition> on July 2, and by the look of the first group promo photo, they’re doing a sexy surfer girl concept.

If that wasn’t enough to snatch your wig, their lead single, “Hurt Locker” (which hopefully has nothing to do with the god damn movie), was written and arranged by e.one, who just did KARA’s “Cupid.” It was also composed by a bunch of Swedes who between them have worked with SHINee, TVXQ, f(x), BoA, and Girls’ Generation.

A press release actually says that the team behind “Hurt Locker” did SNSD’s “Genie,” but that’s a bit of a stretch–one writer from “Hurt Locker” was one of many writers on “Genie.” Some SNSD songs that they actually produced are “Catch Me If You Can” (ugh) and “LOVE&GIRLS” (yay!).

Anyway, my only real gripe with this era so far is that Star Empire didn’t add a ninth muse yet, but I’ll get over it since Kukumber doesn’t look completely atrocious in the teaser photo.
