The track dropped on July 12 along with the album and the single’s accompanying video treatment. The new visual follows the nine members of the band as they navigate a mysterious retro-themed hotel with a set of keys marked by a mango keychain in hand, as they search for its matching room.
“I am your oasis, come, enter your heaven / Sweet just like a mango, It feels so nice / Instantly melts on your lips / Sweet just like a mango,” they croon on the chorus.
‘Mango’ is the title track lifted from the first volume of SUPER JUNIOR’s simultaneously released studio record ‘The Road: Keep On Going’. The five-track EP features B-sides ‘Don’t Wait’, ‘My Wish’, ‘Everyday’ and ‘Always’, with member Eunhyuk having participated in writing the last track.
‘The Road: Keep On Going – Vol. 1’ is the highly anticipated sequel in the band’s ‘The Road’ series of records, which began in February with the single album ‘The Road: Winter for Spring’, led by the title track ‘Call’.
While an exact release date for ‘The Road: Keep On Going – Vol. 2’ has yet to be announced by SM Entertainment, its eventual release, along with the release of a compilation album, is expected to drop sometime later this year, per a press release.
In support of the newly released record, SUPER JUNIOR will be holding a three-night concert at Seoul’s Jamsil Arena this weekend from July 15 to 17, set to open the veteran K-pop band’s forthcoming world tour. However, further specifics about SUPER JUNIOR’s stops for their upcoming ‘Super Show 9: The Road’ tour are to be announced at a later date.
