SEOUL -- K-pop girl band ITZY will release a special edition of its first official album "Crazy in Love" on October 22, South Korea's K-pop powerhouse JYP Entertainment said in a statement. This is the first album scheduled to hit the shelves after "MIDZY," a single track released in March 2021.

Crazy in Love was released in two years and seven months since the five-member band's debut.
