SEOUL - October 6, 2023 - Global Gen Z Icons TOMORROW X TOGETHER (SOOBIN, YEONJUN, BEOMGYU, TAEHYUN, and HUENINGKAI) unveiled the tracklist for their upcoming 3rd Studio Album The Name Chapter: FREEFALL, slated for release on October 13. The new album consists of a total of 9 tracks: "Growing Pain,” lead single "Chasing That Feeling,” "Back for More (TXT Ver.),” "Dreamer,” "Deep Down," "Happily Ever After,” "Skipping Stones,” "Blue Spring,” and "Do It Like That.”
The Name Chapter: FREEFALL tells a story of youth coming face to face with reality. The real world is unfamiliar and inevitably challenging, but the album captures the determination of youth to tackle reality head-on and move forward. Lead single "Chasing That Feeling" signals a fresh start within reality after leaving behind a sweet past that ultimately lacked growth. Unlike youth anthems simply filled with hopes and dreams, the band lay bare and confront the pains, anxieties, and emptiness of reality that deeply resonate with the experiences of today’s youth.
The new release recruits multiple renowned producers of diverse backgrounds. Rock Mafia, who has worked with Selena Gomez, Miley Cyrus, Zedd, and more, participated in the lead single “Chasing That Feeling.” Ryan Tedder, who is known for his work with Beyoncé, Adele, Taylor Swift, and more, as well as HARORO, a critically acclaimed South Korean producer and singer-songwriter, also joined the lineup to complete the album.
The members’ contribution to the production of the album is another standout element. For the fan song “Blue Spring,” BEOMGYU participated in producing, while the rest of the members took part in lyric-writing to display the band’s ever-expanding versatility. The members share credits on the following tracks: YEONJUN, TAEHYUN, HUENINGKAI on “Growing Pain,” YEONJUN, SOOBIN, BEOMGYU and HUENINGKAI on “Dreamer,” YEONJUN on “Deep Down,” and TAEHYUN and YEONJUN on “Happily Ever After.”
Along with the tracklist, track cards symbolically capturing each track’s message were revealed as visuals that reflect the beloved, intricate storytelling of the band.
The Name Chapter: FREEFALL will be available on streaming platforms worldwide on October 13.
