Both Korean and Chinese versions are included in the album that are expected to mesmerize many music fans globally.
This album also includes ‘Lights Out’ which is a pop ballad song with warm words to comfort the weary heart written by CHEN, ‘Been Through’, a pop song, featuring powerful piano melody alongside rock style drum and guitar sound, and ‘Stay’, a pop soul track, contains lyrics describing the feelings of not being able to escape from the pain of parting and wishing to stay besides the loved one.
Also, ‘Fall’ features lyrics that take the moment of falling in love and compares it with a swamp that one cannot escape out of, while ‘Good Night’, a pop ballad song, stimulates the ears with soft piano melody and retro style drum. All seven songs will give the full experience of EXO’s warm winter emotions.
