The K-pop megastars of EXO are in the spotlight once again this holiday season, dropping its new winter EP “For Life” on Monday.

The five-track album, with its eponymous lead single, was released in both Korean and Chinese and features both upbeat pop and soulful ballads as well as Christmas-cheer-inspired tracks including “Winter Heat,” “What I Want for Christmas” and “Falling for You.”

Along with the album release, EXO unveiled the Korean and Chinese music videos for the single “For Life,” a love song about a man who promises to stick by his one true love. The music video was shot in the style of a short movie and was produced by Kenzie and Matthew Tishler.

EXO released its first holiday album, “Miracles in December,” in 2013 and achieved respectable commercial success for a Christmas album. That album went on to steal the No. 1 spot on the Billboard World Albums Chart, as well as rank No. 4 on Korea’s Gaon 2013 Yearly Albums Chart.
