A couple of months ago, Blackpink‘s Lisa signed a solo deal with RCA, and now it looks like she hopes to release new music soon. An Instagram Story on her official account links to pre-save links on the major streaming services and says, “Coming soon: Lisa.” It also links to the artist’s official website. A TikTok, which also says “Coming soon: Lisa,” shows her dancing (with and without sunglasses) as a syncopated analog synth jitters up and down.

“I’m super excited to be joining the RCA family and I am confident they are the best team to create a bigger movement in my solo career,” Lisa said in April. “Looking forward to showing the world everything we have been preparing.” It was revealed at the time that the deal allows Lisa to retain ownership of her recordings.

The news comes three years after the release of Lisa’s debut album, Lalisa, which Blackpink’s label, YG, issued through Interscope. She has since continued recording and touring with Blackpink. A few months ago, though, the group’s four members each decided not to re-sign individually with YG, giving them more control over the directions of their solo careers and opening them up to new opportunities, like Lisa’s upcoming role in season three of The White Lotus.

In 2022, Lisa told Rolling Stone how nervous she felt when she made her solo debut. “Normally, when the four of us are together — let’s say Chaeyoung [Rosé] gives her 100 percent,” she said. “Then the rest of us can feel it onstage. And unconsciously I also get this energy of ‘Shoot, I need to do more, too.’ We boost each other in that way. But if I stand alone, it’s different. I can’t take energy from anybody. It just has to come from me. And the fans just watch only me. It was a huge burden. But what can you do? This is my solo! I just practice and monitor myself a lot.”
