Big Bang members G-Dragon and T.O.P, who began activities as a duo unit, have revealed the third title track from their new album "GD&T.O.P;" today.

YG Entertainment announced in a press release that their final song "Knockout" was unveiled on numerous online music sites, adding that G-Dragon and T.O.P will simultaneously promote the song and other title tracks "HIGH HIGH" and "OH YEAH" as well.

Big Bang, discovered and trained by major talenthouse YG Entertainment, is known as one of the biggest names in the Korean pop industry, releasing hit songs "Dirty Cash," "With U," "Lies" and "Haru Haru."

The boys have successfully crossed over into the Japanese music market in June of last year with their debut single "My Heaven" which reached No. 3 on the prestigious Oricon daily singles chart and toured three cities in the country which attracted a total of 60,000 fans.

They have released other singles in Japan such as "Tell Me Goodbye" and "Beautiful Hangover" and performed on the main stage at the Summer Sonic Festival this August and took the stage with fellow YG labelmates for the "2010 YG Family Concert" in early December in Korea.
