NCT members Mark, Doyoung and Haechan have released the music video for their new single ‘CoNEXTion (Age Of Light)’.
On March 20 at 6pm KST, the three K-pop idols released the song, which is credited under the rotational NCT U sub-unit. The track is part of the newly launched ‘NCT Lab’ project, which exists under the company-wide ‘SM Station’ initiative.
The accompanying “Performance Video” features NCT member Shotaro dancing to the dynamic new track with a team of backup dancers. “Connect, connect me / I’m gonna connect, connect you / To each other, synchronise / Talk, talk about all those emotions,” goes the chorus.
Per a press statement from SM Entertainment, ‘CoNEXTion (Age Of Light)’ is the theme song for the ‘Age Of Light’ project, which was described as a “large-scale realistic content experience space” to be held Gwanghwamun, located in Seoul city. The project was commissioned by the Korean Ministry of Culture, Sports And Tourism alongside the Korea Creative Content Agency.
The first ‘NCT Lab’ project was Mark’s solo song ‘Child’, released in early February. The ‘NCT Lab’ will serve as a channel for the members of NCT to release new music, solo or otherwise, in the future. It will also exist outside of official NCT records to be released this year.
Mark is also slated to make a comeback with NCT Dream this March, marking the boyband’s first music release since June 2021’s ‘Hello Future’, which itself was a repackaged version of May 2021’s ‘Hot Sauce’ studio album. More details about the forthcoming release are expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
