News of their upcoming return first came on August 8, when their agency Mystic Story announced that the seven-member act would be making a comeback later in the month, adding that the record was in its “final stages” at the time.
According to a representative from Mystic Story, per Newsen, the upcoming record will continue the story of their November 2021 debut mini-album ‘the Billage of perception : chapter one’.
Last month, Billlie after they dropped the digital single album ‘track by YOON: Patbingsu’, which was led by a remake of Mystic Story founder and singer Yoon Jong-shin’s ‘Patbingsu’.
The release included one B-side, ‘Highway Romance’, also a remake of one of Yoon’s songs of the same title. Both tracks were originally released in 2001 as part of his ‘Shade’ studio album.
In February, Billlie released their sophomore mini-album ‘the collective soul and unconscious: chapter one’. Shortly after its release, a fancam of member Tsuki performing to the title track ‘GingaMingaYo (the strange world)’ went viral due to her wild, quick-changing facial expressions, which earned praise of K-pop fans both domestically and overseas.
The song made it to NME’s list of the 15 best K-pop songs of 2022 so far, where it was hailed as “a much-needed shot of pure dopamine in an era that seems to favour bare-boned anti-drops.”
