On 23 May (Monday), Rolling Stone published a cover story on the 'Lovesick Girls' quartet, telling their story from the group's early days to how they're currently spending quiet time with family and friends.

The story also teased that BLACKPINK are recording songs for their next album, scheduled for release "sometime later this year."

In the interview, Jennie reflects, "These days . . . I think every day, 'OK, how do I prepare myself for my next busy two years?'"

Rolling Stone has also opened pre-orders for a Collector's Edition Box Set of the magazine's June 2022 issue, featuring BLACKPINK. It includes an exclusive Rolling Stone 44-page zine with an alternate group cover and individual interviews with Jennie, Jisoo, Lisa, and Rosé.

Pre-orders also come with four premium 5x7" BLACKPINK photo prints shot by Peter Ash Lee and a Rolling Stone sticker sheet.

Rolling Stone's BLACKPINK Collector's Edition Box Set is priced at 129 USD. Pre-order here.

BLACKPINK's upcoming album follows the release of their 2020 first full-length record The Album, which sold around 1.2 million copies in less than a month. The milestone marked BLACKPINK as the first million-selling K-pop girl group. 

Before sharing their story with Rolling Stone, the members of BLACKPINK have been busy with their solo projects. In 2021, the group celebrated their fifth anniversary with the 4+1 PROJECT, which includes the film BLACKPINK THE MOVIE, the release of their special photobook featuring behind-the-scenes content from THE ALBUM, and a special BLACKPINK 4+1 POP-UP.
