The girl group had previously released a cryptic teaser for the forthcoming release. It opens with a pink mushroom cloud that forms a heart shape, before flickering between the smoke and a pixelated heart-shaped graphic and ending with their logo.
The six-member group also launched a countdown website for the upcoming record, which currently features a heart-shaped lock as well as a link to the newly-released clip.
‘YOUNG-LUV.COM’ will arrive about five months after their first mini-album ‘Stereotype’, which was released in September 2021. That project had been the follow-up to their viral breakout hit ‘ASAP’, which dropped last April.
STAYC was named one of NME’s 100 Emerging Artists of 2022, where they were praised for their distinctive sound and “sheer pop optimism”. Closer to home, the girl group had also taken home a trophy for Best Performance at the 31st Seoul Music Awards, and a Digital Song Bonsang for ‘ASAP’ at the 36th Golden Disc Awards last month.
