The latest songs are part of the project album “MADE,” which brought the popular K-pop idol group back on the music scene after a three-year hiatus. The first EP, “M” took the first alphabet of the project name.

The band will release “A” on June 1 which will be followed by “D” and “E” on July 1 and Aug. 1, respectively.
