K-pop supergroup NCT will return with all members Monday, dropping its fourth studio album.
"Golden Age" will be unveiled at 6 p.m. alongside the music video for "Baggy Jeans," one of the album's two main tracks, according to the group's agency, SM Entertainment.
It will mark the first LP from the group in the one year and eight months since "Universe," released in December 2021.
The upcoming album involves all of the group's 20 members, who had been working in three subunits -- NCT 127, NCT Dream and WayV -- according to the agency.
The LP has 10 songs, including the two main tracks, "Golden Age" and "Baggy Jeans."
The second song is a hip hop dance track that features distinctive vocals of members Taeyong, Ten, Doyoung, Jaehyun and Mark on top of heavy bass lines, minimal drums, and dreamy synthesizers, according to the agency. The song's lyrics compare their confidence to baggy jeans that exude a sense of coolness that no one can imitate.
On Saturday, the band kicked off the first-ever in-person concert involving all members since its debut in 2016 at Munhak Stadium in Incheon, west of Seoul. It will continue the "NCT Nation: To the World" tour at Nagai Stadium in Osaka on Sept. 9-10 and Ajinomoto Stadium in Tokyo on Sept. 16-17.
