The clip features short snippets of each song from the girl group’s upcoming 10-track record, except for closing song ‘My Bag’, which is due out March 8. Meanwhile, the video explores an eerie, abandoned hotel room as the previews are played.
The majority of ‘I Never Die’, including lead single ‘Tomboy’ was co-written and -produced by leader Soyeon. Meanwhile, Chinese-born member Yuqi worked on ‘Liar’ and ‘Polaroid’, while Thai-born Minnie contributed to ‘Already’ and “Escape’.
‘I Never Die’ will be their first project since former member Soojin left the group in August 2021. At the time, CUBE Entertainment did not name any explicit reasons for the idol’s departure, but also apologised for “having caused concern through the controversy associated with [Soojin]”.
Member Miyeon had also hinted that the girl group would be releasing new music soon during an interview last week. “I hope that you’ll also keep an eye on my promotions with (G)I-DLE,” she said while discussing plans for the year ahead. “We’ll show you lots of new and cool sides of ourselves this year.”
The upcoming album will mark Red Velvet’s first music project since their August 2021 mini-album ‘Queendom’. Last year, members Wendy and Joy had also made their solo debuts with the projects ‘Like Water’ and ‘Hello’, respectively.
