“Imagine being trapped in perpetual darkness, and your heart is calling out to someone who you have been longing for, but all you hear are echoes of your own voice within these four walls,” the band said of the song via social media.

In late October, MFMF. collaborated with South Korean musician Jimmy Brown to release the first version of ‘Rindu’, sung entirely in Korean. Two weeks later, the trio followed up the release with its Mandarin counterpart, sung by Gaston and MAD.

‘Rindu Part 3’ serves as the ninth release of the year for the production trio, who collaborated with Korean-American singer-songwriter Annalé, Brazilian guitar maestro Mateus Asato and Filipino singer Inigo Pascual for ‘Goodbye’ in March.
