SEOUL, K-pop girl group NewJeans will release a new single on May 24, the group's management agency said Wednesday. "NewJeans finally is ready to surprise fans once again with new music and stage performances," ADOR said in a release. The upcoming single will have four tracks -- the main track, "How Sweet," "Bubble Gum" and instrumental versions of the two songs. "Bubble Gum" will be featured in Japanese TV commercials and shows starting next month, according to the agency. Additionally, the K-pop quintet will put out its Japanese debut single on June 21, which will contain four tracks -- the lead track "Supernatural," "Right Now" and instrumental versions of the two songs.
