iann dior thanked TXT’s official fanbase, MOAs, for having him at the show. “TXT are very special. I think it was cool walking through the valley of lies with you tonight,” he added. TXT’s Yeonjun then replied: “This was a lot of fun for us too, thank you so much and I hope we get the chance to work together again. Thank you for joining us and making it special.”

The K-pop group first confirmed the single’s release during an in-studio appearance on Good Morning America last week. In a statement, the collaboration was described as an “indie alternative” song that “speaks about a lonesome journey that one takes towards the end of a relationship, along a trail of countless lies.”
TXT’s ongoing ‘Act: Lovesick’ tour kicked off earlier this month in Seoul, in support of the boyband’s May mini-album ‘minisode 2: Thursday’s Child’. In a five-star review of the record, NME‘s Rhian Daly said the record “fully justifies [their] hype, continuing to position Tomorrow X Together as voices for their generation (and beyond) with songs that are both sublime in quality and evocative reflections of life’s ups and downs.”
