The title track “0X1=LOVESONG (I Know I Love You) feat. Ikuta Lilas [Japanese Ver.]” is a new version of TOMORROW X TOGETHER’s hit song from their Billboard Top 5 album, The Chaos Chapter: FREEZE. The new version features Japanese band YOASOBI’s vocalist Ikuta Lilas for a unique rendition of the song.
Fans also noticed that the music video seemed to reference the famous 2016 Japanese animated film “Your Name,” which was written and directed by Makoto Shinkai.
One fan then tagged Makoto Shinkai on Twitter and asked, “What do you think of this ‘Your Name’-inspired music video by TXT?” The director thrilled fans by giving a response, “Beautiful. I love it!”
“Ito” is a brand new ballad about the string of fate that brings people together. Written and composed by Japanese artists GReeeeN, “Ito” marks TOMORROW X TOGETHER’s first soundtrack contribution in a Japanese TV drama, notably, as the show’s opening theme song.
The original version of TOMORROW X TOGETHER’s first fan-dedicated song “MOA Diary (Dubaddu Wari Wari) [Japanese Ver.]” was first released in the band’s second studio repackage album, The Chaos Chapter: FIGHT OR ESCAPE, and “Magic” is noteworthy as TOMORROW X TOGETHER’s first English track.
In Japan, TOMORROW X TOGETHER has previously released their first single “MAGIC HOUR” in January 2020, followed by their second single “DRAMA” in August the same year. Earlier in January of 2021, the group released their first Japanese studio album, STILL DREAMING.
