Taeyang made his long-awaited solo comeback last night with the release of his new album White Night, something that has been in the works for three years. Needless to say, a lot of work was put into the BIGBANG singer's new album, who said that he drew influence from a few sources - including his lovely girlfriend.

During a press conference held for the release of White Night, Taeyang talked about the concept of the album this time around, saying that the title is a continuation of his first few releases. Given how his first mini-album was titled Hot, his first album was titled Solar, and his second album was titled Rise, the singer said that it made sense for his new album to be titled White NIght as it represents the sunset.

When asked about who influences his music given that he is still known as a BIGBANG member, Taeyang says that BIGBANG are his family and best friends, thus they have a lot of influence on him musically. It's not just his group who influence him though as the singer also revealed that his girlfriend, Min Hyo Rin, has helped shape his music, saying that she is his "she is a muse for me, and gives me good influence on my music."
